Tango, born in the working-class heart of Buenos Aires, conquered the whole world with it sensuality, beauty and soul-moving body language. It transcended cultural boundaries to become a worldwide phenomenon.

Recently reviewed as “truly fiery”, Tango Legends brings to the stage the soul of Argentina in a spectacular show. The group consists of 14 award-winning dancers, a remarkable quintet and a skillful singer. The group was founded by leading Tango dancers and choreographers Mariela Maldonado and Pablo Sosa, who were honoured by the government of Capital Province of Buenos Aires as “Outstanding Personalities of Culture” in 2012.

Their show Tango Legends puts on stage the grand legends and history of this dramatic dance form. They seek to revive the passion of the men and women who danced the first tangos, and who were convinced that Tango would become a musical genre of its own years later.

These master artists will reveal what makes Tango legendary, displaying all styles with their signature glamour and sensuality.

Expect a performance that is not only electrifying but utterly compelling!
