Tango has a variety of styles. The two basic categories are dramatic, athletic stage dancing, and close, subtle social dance. We emphasize the social-style tango (not performance) typical of 1940s Argentina, "as danced today in the milongas of Buenos Aires". Our style is adaptable, however, easily moving from close to open embrace. Social tango is easier to take out dancing, and provides a good foundation if you want to go on to more showy movements.
