It is much debated whether The Tango originated in Spain or Morocco, however it is agreed that it was introduced to the New World by Spanish settlers. From its humble beginnings in the early 19th Century as a solo dance performed by a woman, followed by the Andalusian Tango performed by one or two couples walking together using castanets, the dance was soon considered immoral with its flirting music. This sentiment changed dramatically when The Tango was popularised by Rudolph Valentino, ‘The Great Lover’, with his sensual depictions of the dance on film in 1921, taking the world by storm then, and still holding its fascination and allure to this day.
