Tango Performances

You are here

A trip to Buenos Aires would not be complete without attending a tango performance. In the late 1800s, tango was a dance for the people in the poorest barrios, or neighborhoods. Today, tango is a phenomenon throughout Argentina and the world. La Boca, a neighborhood in Buenos Aires, is well-known for its outdoor tango performances.

"My favorite landmark was the La Confíteria Ideal, one of the most historical milongas in the city. My friends and I went every Thursday night to watch people of all ages tango and practice our budding tango skills from class; however, watching the aficionados was equally enjoyable." -Maria F., University of California-Santa Barbara
