WELCOME to Tangology 101!


Tangology 101 is dedicated to the study of Argentine Tango dance, music and history. Our Online Video Dance Lessons primarily focus on the social forms of Argentine Tango. You can watch and learn everything from the basic steps to the most advanced concepts of the dance. Our History of Argentine Tango section focuses on the history of the music and its' orchestras.

Our Classes and Workshops area educates you about our weekly Atlanta tango classes as well as our lessons in Macon and Athens, Georgia. It also has information about our workshops in other cities and private dance lessons in Atlanta, Macon and Athens. The Milongas and DJing section fills you in on our Atlanta Tango Community Milongas (Dance Parties) and about my DJing.

Our Argentinian Tango Resources section has information for new dancers, favorite tango videos and information about our 24/7 Tango Radio Station.

Un Abrazo, Clint Rauscher

This week's tanda is calm, rhythmic tanda by Francisco Canaro with Roberto Maida singing. It starts with the very popular "Invierno." It is such a sweet and smooth song. Click here for a great translation of the lyrics from the Poesía de Gotán blog.

You might notice that there are 5 songs here. No, this is not a 5 song tanda... but rather, I could not decide which song to end the tanda with. I think "Viejo Tiempo" is probably the best fit, but I also love "Paciencia." So, I put both on here so that you could listen and decide. "Viejo Tiempo / Old Time" makes sense because all of these songs have more in common with the "Guardia Viejo / Old Guard" period (1910 to 1925) than the Guardia Nueva or Golden Age period. To give a super brief and over-simplified explanation, the songs of the Guardia Viejo period would have focused more on the underlying rhythm while the music of the Guaria Nueva would have focused more on melody and harmony. Canaro is working with both here.

Here is one of my favorite all-time favorite performances by Pablo Rodriguez and Noelia Hurtado. It is such a sweet and tender performance. To me, nothing says tango quite like this performance. It also demonstrates the statement that "Tango is a sad thought that can be danced." You might notice how emotional they are after the performance. I do not know the details, but it is my understanding that this was their last performance together after many years of teaching and dancing with one another.
