This semesters news i the Argentinian Tango!
Many associate Tango with romance and excitment. It has been called "The dance of the dances", the "the dance of sin", "dance of love", "dance of life" etc. and most of those who give
Tango a chance will have a special relationship to it.
Tango has an interesting history and several styles of Tango has been developed during the last centuary:
European Tango or Modern Tango is a standardised ballroom dance. You recognise it from the fast head throws and the hard beats
in the music. The dancers posture resembles the posture in the Walz and Foxtrote.
Finnish Tango is a simplified social veriation of the Modern Tango and is similar to Social Foxtrote. The music is often in a minor key.
Argentinian or Rio de la Plata Tango is a direct development of the orignial tango. The hold is intimit which makes it easer to lead and to follow
the often subtile steps (see the left picture). The man improvises his and the ladies stepcombinations according to the music and lead the lady to perfort those steps.
Therefor you can not talk about any basic steps in tango. There are, however, an infinite number of combinations of steps!

Is it difficult to dance Argentinian Tango?
It is easy to start dancing Tango and you will discover much of its fun already after the first lesson. If you then continue to develop
your dance you will find ever new enjoyable aspects of the Tango. And this you can do for the rest of your life! Argentinian Tango is
actually a quite simple and relaxed dance (you basicly just hug and walk). However, it can also be a fantastic challange that keeps the
dancers developing their skills year after year. It is up to you how far you want to reach!
