    Okay, so we all know that if you want to tango, Buenos Aires is the place to be. But I'm not there, and not likely to get there anytime soon. So where in the world (other than Argentina) can one find a great tango? Are there thriving communties out there?

    Hehe I know Orlando isn't one yet. There are some folks working on building a community here. It's just not done yet.


    So where in the world can one go tango?

    Hey. Did anybody see that old Sixty Minutes episode about tango in Finland? Totally fascinating. Clinically shy people. Minimal face to face interaction. Lots of loneliness and depression. And a national obsession with tango -- tango halls everywhere. Defintely worth a google. I bet there are articles out there.

    Where to tango

    The San Francisco Bay area reputedly has one of the most vibrant scenes outside of BA and Montevideo.

    Hi Sagita.

    You can go to the website of our Beijing club www.beijingtango.org or to tangotang.com which is the Hong Kong club site to learn more about tango in Asia and in particular Greater China.

    It appears that there may be small pockets of tango in lots of places. Of course, there are big, well-publicized communities in a few places. But even in Orlando, AT outback, there is a small but thriving community. Once people get hooked (pun intended), it appears that they stay hooked. :wink:

    Tango in sinapore

    Well there is a fairly vibrant but very small tango scene here, which I got myself mixed into a few months ago. Their actually quite a dedicated lot though I had and dance with a visiting Argentinine lass (I'm an Aussie) and it was very, very different, she was kind of more fiery???

    Anyway the main tango info for Singapore can be found at http://pachome1.pacific.net.sg/~kace/tango/ while for more info or what other social dances are practiced here check my own little peice of the internet ( www.cerocsingapore.com). cheers.
