#3030 Argentina’s Tango: Its Myriad, Multicultural Roots (Presenters will be coming to us in the classroom via Zoom.)

Moderator: Aaron Casey

The Argentine Tango originated in the streets of Buenos Aires, Argentina, in the late 19th century. The roots of this dance lie in African candombe, Cuban habanera, waltzes, and polkas. It was a popular dance among European immigrants, former slaves, and the working and lower classes. It remains Argentina’s iconic dance. Our presenters will sketch its history and significance and show off some moves.


Join us for this fascinating masterclass and then join the trip to Argentina led by Alterra Consulting. We’ll visit winelands, experience ranch culture, and, yes, dance the tango!  Ask for details.
