Great Video Resources Online to Learn About the History of Tango

I love history, especially when it deals with dance.   I wanted to share some video resources out there with those of you wanting to learn more about Argentine Tango.

This first video has a short overview of the history of Argentine Tango by a Florida based Tango Instructor.  I think it serves as a good intro to the subject:

This second video explains in more detail the history of the dance itself and its influences:

This next video is actually one in a series of videos that does a great job of breaking down the history of Tango according to the development of orchestras in the genre:

I’m sure there are many other good videos out there concerning the subject, so if you have one to share please do so by leaving a comment on this post.  Thanks!

Hello Everyone,

I have some information to share with you regarding a Tango event next week. On 1/25/08 – Tango Fire will be having a performance in San Diego. Tango Fire is the hit dance production by Estampas Porteñas–the hottest Tango company in Buenos Aires–combining the fabulous music of Astor Piazzolla with show-stopping choreography.

This performance will take place Friday, January 25, 2008 at 8pm at Stephen & Mary Birch North Park Theatre. Tickets may be purchased by visiting the La Jolla Music Society or by calling the box office at (858) 459-3728.

The La Jolla Music Society describes it like this:

Featuring a quartet of brilliant young musicians, passionate dancers and a great singer, Tango Fire takes the audience on a sizzling journey through the world of Tango from the red light district of Buenos Aires to the glamour of the Roaring Twenties. Combining the fabulous music of Astor Piazzolla with show-stopping choreography, Tango Fire has captivated audiences throughout Europe, Australia, Asia and the Americas.
