Private Tango Tour
Buenos Aires, Argentina
- Skip the crowds: You do not have to take a group vote. This is a small, private, leisurely paced, 3-hour walking tour limited to six persons.
- Guided tour: Questions are encouraged. Your docent is a tango dance instructor or accomplished tango dancer. This private orientation is unscripted.
- La Boca Barrio: Learn the history of tango in the neighborhood where it began. We will discuss Boca’s conventillos, the tenements where immigrants from the world over congregated and originated a fusion dance called tango, uniquely Argentinian, but also a mélange of many traditions.
- Learn dance lingo: Learn the language of tango. There are dance terms and terms of art that are unique to this dance form.
- Listen to the music: Tango is a style of music. Distinguish what makes music truly tango music.
- Learn the styles of tango: Although Argentina claims tango as its own, Uruguay and other countries also have bragging rights to their own style of performance.
- Museum of Benito Quinquela Martín: Walk in the footsteps of Benito Quinquela Martin, the social activist and patron of arts who helped destigmatize the tango, making it available to all classes. (Optional stop.)
- Academy and Museum of Tango: Objects related to the Tango are arranged chronologically which will allow us to review our discussions and see how the dance evolved.
