Tango, our dance. Movie. Resourses about Argentine Tango at Escuela de Tango de Buenos Aires

“Tango, Our Dance”, written and directed by Jorge Zanada, 1987.

Tango, our dance. Movie. Resourses about Argentine Tango at Escuela de Tango de Buenos AiresDirector Jorge Zanada spent years researching and recording the Tango’s place in Argentine culture.
The sensuality and stylized ritual of the tango are captured in this illuminating documentary. Most riveting are the milongueros-the amateur dancers who preserve the pure, traditional steps. Their intimate stories about their personal experiences reveal the intensity that feed their individual Tango styles. Numerous tango aficionados, including actors Robert Duvall and Juan Carlos Copes (star of Broadway’s TANGO ARGENTINO), make special appearances. A passionate valentine to what Martha Graham called “the most beautiful dance of this century.”

I was born in Argentina. Through my family and the community that saw my upbringing, I have been intimately involved with the culture of Tango all my life, and have been an Argentine Tango dance performer, choreographer and instructor for over 30 years. I profoundly love Tango dancing, music, and culture, particularly that of the Golden Era. I am a milonguero.
