History of the Tango Dance
Tango began among the poor people in Buenos Aires in the 1800s. By the early 1900s it became popular among various people and spread to Europe. In the 1930s it developed into the Golden Age of Tango in Argentina and was a symbol of populism until a military coup in 1955 brought in a military junta which suppressed it. With the fall of the military junta in 1983, there was a tango renaissance which has lasted in Argentina until the present time. Tango has remained an exciting dance form throughout the world.
The bead pictured above handcrafted by the Beadshaper captures the fiery and sultry mood of the tango.
