It is said that Argentine Tango is a music that some people dance to some of the time. For many people all over the world, tango music is part of their personal landscapes but it's to listen to. So why are people inspired to dance to it? Understanding how the music shaped the dance is what Gigi Jensen, director of Tango & More Argentine Dance, will talk about. Click here to register
