Ask any tango aficionado and she or he will probably give you one of these three answers: Life, Love, or Connection. What is Tango? It is an impossible question to answer with words alone, and only those who dance it understand that the answer can only be discovered through the embrace. The tango that we know today was born in the bowels of Buenos Aires and Montevideo in the late 19th century. An influx of immigrants from Europe and a confluence of cultures, customs, and languages served as the backdrop for the development of this dance. During the Golden Age of tango, in the 1930s and 1940s, orchestras such as Aníbal Troilo, Juan d’Arienzo, Carlos Di Sarli, and Osvaldo Pugliese achieved critical acclaim, and are still adored at present-day milongas and practicas around the world, or in our Spotify playlist or vinyl record collection. The following video below features one of my favorite dancers, Corina Herrera. Teachers will often say that you should not copy other dancers but find your own dance. If I could break one rule of tango that would be to copy Corina Herrera. I admire her confidence, grace, and strength as a dancer.
