It all started with passion and desire, a sense of music, which soon turned into a dance and brought together different classes of society. 19. . In the mid-19th century, tango dominated in the pubs of Argentina, but in conservative Europe, dance was taboo for a long time simply because it was considered entertainment for the lowest classes of society. The Old World gave in only when it realised that such energy and challenging openness is not found in any other dance in the world. It is a blend of breath-taking movement, solo and duets, unusual elegance, impeccable technique, an atmosphere of love and passion. Power, selfishness, the desire for victory and success, the ability to overcome all obstacles with the help of dance, to come out of the shadows into the light. And, of course, wonderful music.
