Individual Blog # 2 - Week 1 (Who likes to Tango!!??)

From what I understand, the dance originated in a strange manner (men waiting in brothels for "their turn" or so to speak).
As to which show I like better (the one at GT or this one, since I've only seen 2 tango shows in my life), I would have to say that both had their ups and downs. The show at GT had one dancer who impressed me with doing these dances w/ tools like a ladder and a table, while the one in Buenos Aires didn't have any of that. However, Buenos Aires did have horses come out at the beginning and aerial acrobatics, which made up for it, along w/ more than just a few dancers. They even had American Indians come out and play on instruments here in Argentina. The atmosphere was definitely better here, as it should be. We are in "tango city" here, so if it's not good here, then it can't be good elsewhere.
What was my favorite part of the show here in Buenos Aires? Hmm...the girl in orange? The scene with all the girls together on the stage by themselves? =) Well, if you really want to know, you'll have to ask me in person about that. Would I recommend seeing a tango show? Absolutely! It's a must see, and if you're ever in Buenos Aires Argentina, come visit Senor Tango and watch their show.
Soo, who wants to tango??...
