Tango escenario

Tango Escenario, also known as Tango de Escenario or Stage Tango, is a style of Argentine tango that is primarily designed for performance on stage rather than social dancing. While traditional Argentine tango focuses on improvisation and intimate connection between the partners, Tango Escenario incorporates choreographed routines, dramatic elements, and intricate movements to create visually captivating performances.

In Tango Escenario, dancers often incorporate theatrical elements, including elaborate costumes, dramatic poses, and expressive storytelling. The choreography can include complex lifts, acrobatic movements, and sequences that highlight the technical skills of the dancers. The performances are usually set to tango music but may also incorporate elements from other genres to enhance the theatricality of the presentation.

Tango Escenario has gained popularity worldwide through various tango shows, such as those performed in Buenos Aires, Argentina, and touring productions. These performances often showcase the passion, elegance, and artistry of Argentine tango in a more extravagant and theatrical manner. Dancers who specialize in Tango Escenario typically undergo extensive training to master the technical and performance aspects of this style.

It’s important to note that Tango Escenario is distinct from social Argentine tango, which is primarily danced in milongas (tango social gatherings) and emphasizes improvisation and connection between partners. Tango Escenario, on the other hand, is specifically designed for stage performances and incorporates choreography and theatrical elements to create a visually stunning experience for the audience.
