Argentine Tango in Cambridge

Argentine Tango is one of the most sensual dances in the world. It allows two people to connect intimately through movement on a dance floor.

At the Cambridge Tango Academy, we want to share our passion for this exquisite dance. Both our community and Tango itself are beginner-friendly, and having two left feet is not an issue: if you can walk, you can Tango.

We won’t be focusing on dance routines, we will teach you to lead, to follow and to move instinctively to the music. It’s up to you and your own creative seed to choose how to dance.

Tango is a partner dance, and social dance that originated in the 1880s along the Río de la Plata, the natural border between Argentina and Uruguay. It was born in the impoverished port areas of these countries, where natives mixed with slave and European immigrant populations. The tango is the result of a combination of the German Waltz, Czech Polka, Polish Mazurka, and Bohemian Schottische with the Spanish-Cuban Habanera, African Candombe, and Argentinian Milonga. The tango was frequently practiced in the brothels and bars of ports, where business owners employed bands to entertain their patrons with music. The tango then spread to the rest of the world. Many variations of this dance currently exist around the world. On August 31, 2009, UNESCO approved a joint proposal by Argentina and Uruguay to include the tango in the UNESCO Intangible Cultural Heritage Lists. More info
