The tango evolved in the 1880’s, in dance halls and perhaps brothels in the lower-class districts of Buenos Aires, where the Spanish tango, a light-spirited variety of flamenco, merged with the milonga, a fast, sensual, and disreputable Argentine dance; it also shows possible influences from the Cuban habanera. This painting in red is inspired by a tango pose which is taken by the girl. In the early 1900s the tango became socially acceptable and by 1915 was a craze in fashionable European circles. It is a very intimate form of dance which is expressed purely through the movement of the body.
“A good dancer is one who listens to the music…We dance the music not the steps. Anyone who aspires to dance never thinks about what he is going to do. What he cares about is that he follows the music.”- Carlos Gavito
