Even though dancers follow certain conventions, they
never quite know how someone will construct a dance, add an embellishment or interpret the music. The
surprises possible within the dance are what make the dance so addicting. It really does take two to tango,
because the dance isn’t just about the man leading and the woman following. Both partners have important
things to contribute—like all good conversations.
A boom in tango tourism in Buenos Aires has seen tango-themed hotels spring up all around the city. These hotels are handy to stay at as they offer daily tango lessons and tango shows.
