Series Summary

The tango dance originated in the Argentinian capital Buenos Aires, but it has spread all over the world. Thus, there are many different ways to dance the tango. Ballroom tangos, including American and International tango, incorporate the head snapping, staccato music, and quick movements seen in movies such as “True Lies” and “Mr. And Mrs. Smith.” However, Argentina's tango has neither head snapping nor fast music, and it is a more fluid dance.
