Midnight Tango is a theatrical dance masterpiece set in the sultry surroundings of a late-night bar in Argentina’s Buenos Aires. The show proudly proclaims that it, “Brings to life all the drama, sensuality and elegance of the tango. A journey into the heart of this intoxicating city, as danger and excitement, joy and jealousy, pain and passion combine into a spectacular and explosive evening.”
Starting January 30th 2013, the show will run for five weeks in the West End’s Phoenix Theatre. The rest of the country needed worry, as the show will go on to make another national tour, making sure that the whole of the UK gets its dose of Latin dancing spirit!
Fans of the BBC’s perennially popular Strictly Come Dancing will be enthralled to see past victors of the programme Vincent Simone and Flavia Cacace taking to the stage once more. They created and choreographed the show, ready to perform with a company consisting of another 10 talented tango dancers.
While tickets are on sale for 2013, there’s no need to wait that long if you’re in the capital and you’re looking to get a tango fix! As Argentine tango continues to gain popularity, new places and ways to experience this vibrant dance are popping up all over London. There are small theatres and galleries hosting tango performances in greater numbers across the capital, along with clubs and bars where tango evenings are a regular feature.
Or course, if you’re not satisfied with just sitting back and watching the spectacle unfold, then it’s probably time that you experienced tango in a more personal manner. Tango is all about grabbing life and enjoying every moment of it, so it shouldn’t come as a surprise that the learning process is a lot of fun! Private tango classes will show you that there’s nothing shy or retiring about tango, even for complete beginners. It’s all about getting energetically involved and losing yourself to the passionate, sensual dance.
