Who can forget that iconic scene from Shall We Dance? where Jennifer Lopez’s character tells Richard Gere, “Don’t think. Don’t move – unless you feel it.”?
The Argentine Tango is synonymous with sensuality, passion and longing.
Born out of the explosive population growth in Bueno Aires in the late 1800s, as a result of immigration, this dance is a blend of cultures, nostalgia, desire and yearning.
