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.

It’s a dance that allows for interpretation and creativity; which can be challenging for the novice, but liberating for the experienced.

See Jose and Heidi demonstrate the beauty and sensuality of this dance for you.
