Nursery Park, West Kowloon Cultural District

Argentine tango is characterised by heavy improvisation and a close connection between partners. Dancers, possibly two complete strangers, can sense and connect with each other in a close embrace through the language of leading and following that makes Argentine tango one of the most passionate and romantic dances.

Enjoy tango performances by the dancers of Otrotango Dance Company and learn basic tango steps from Raymond and Lily, champions of the Tango Dance World Championship 2011 in Asia, who will show you how these simple movements can be combined to create a captivating dance.
