Experience and Learn Tango in Newfoundland

June 10, 2010

Tango on the Edge was formed in 2006, to help promote Argentine Tango in NL, as it experiences a resurgence throughout Canada and the world.

We sponsor workshops with national and international guest artists, and invite dancers (of all levels), to come and explore the rich musical history of Tango through dance.

Tango was born in the streets of Buenos Aires in the mid 19th centiry and its roots are wide and varied. The Cuban Habanera, the Spanish Contradanza and the Afro-Argentinian Candombe, have all influnced its evolution. Eventually, the Bandoneon, which originated in Germany, became the main instrument of the Tango.

The history of Tango is filled with legend, romance and mystery; it is a passionate expression of the full range of human emotions; from hope, disappointment and joy and everything in between.
