TANGO LESSONS!!:  TANGO LESSONS!! During INSME 2006, you will have the opportunity to experiment one of the most important symbols of our culture: TANGO A LITTLE BIT OF HISTORY:  A LITTLE BIT OF HISTORY TANGO needs no mayor description. Everybody associates it with elegant dancers, beautiful women in tight dresses and sensual movements. Slide3:  But there is another kind of Tango, which is the original one: heavier, sadder (you could call it the 'River Plate Blues'). It sounds more like classical music. Here in Uruguay you will know both of them: the romantic and the original one. Tango lyrics always deal about 'life problems': Jealous women swearing revenge to the men who 'betrayed' them; abandoned men yelling for their lost beloveds. Love, hate, passion and madness are predominant But the power of TANGO lays in transforming all those existential problems in pure energy and joy of life. And, of course: You never dance Tango alone ... IN THE FOOTSTEPS OF CARLOS GARDEL:  IN THE FOOTSTEPS OF CARLOS GARDEL The unforgotten idol is Carlos Gardel, a kind of Uruguayan James Dean, who had a brilliant career and died young in an accident. In the late twenties and early thirties, he did movies with Paramount Pictures, being the first 'Latin Lover' and heartbreaker in the upcoming film industry. Always smart, always perfectly dressed and styled, that was his trademark. TANGO – FOREVER YOUNG:  TANGO – FOREVER YOUNG Tango is more than 100 years old. The first Tango was composed in 1886. The 'hymn' of Tango - "La Cumparsita" was written in 1917 by the Uruguayan Gerardo Matos Rodríguez. As happened with almost all popular dances, during its first decades, TANGO was considered as 'dirty' and 'not suitable' by the upper social classes. It was first danced in prostitute houses, where the working ladies used the erotism of Tango as a powerful marketing strategy . 'Honest' women were not supposed to dance Tango. Therefore, men danced Tango - with other men. They did this to 'practice' and to teach the unexperienced for their late night adventures. Slide6:  This changed during the twenties, when Tango became socially accepted and conquered all the dancing halls. The fourties was the 'Golden Decade' of Tango, in Uruguay and Argentina. Tango never died. On the contrary: In the 80ies and 90ies, it had a strong comeback, finding also many followers in Europe and Northamerica where Tango schools spread like mushrooms. Here in Montevideo, you will find several places to dance TANGO, but first…you can take some lessons! RATES:  RATES U$S 10 p/lesson, p/person Lessons will be at the Radisson Victoria Plaza, and they last 1 hour.
