Buenos Aires- The Tango

The tango is a dance that is synonymous with Argentina, especially Buenos Aires. The dance originated there, and has now become a tourist attraction in the city. Restaurants were constantly offering free tango shows during lunch or dinner in the touristy areas, and our hostel advertised tango shows as well.

I thoroughly enjoy theater and dance, and seeing a tango show was high on my to-do in BA list. The six of us booked tickets to a classy tango show and got picked up at our hostel. We got there with plenty of time to spare, and plenty of time to share some good Argentinian wine. Below are some pictures of the show.
My favorite part of the show was when they grabbed certain audience members and added them to the show. Our group was lucky enough to have two members chosen- Molly and Jesse. Jesse actually got whisked away backstage and made part of the act.
Below is a short video we took of the action.
