Who hasn't dreamt of the drama and flair of dancing across the floor to the passionate music of an International tango?

International Standard Tango uses music of a medium tempo orchestral and is often march-like. 4/4 timing and tempos of 128-132 beats per minute characterize this exciting dance. The basic rhythm is Quick-Quick-Slow.

According to the International style Tango was adopted by the Europeans, specificially the English, and modified into a powerful dance with big movements and dramatic gestures including quick head snaps and direction changes.

Grouped together in competitive events with the smooth ballroom dances, the International Tango incorporated many of the patterns characteristics of Waltz and Foxtrot while still maintaining a unique character and look that separates it from other ballroom dances.
