This festival brings together dancers and musicians for a week-long celebration of the Tango. Originating in Argentina during the 1880’s, the Tango has become a popular dance for couples from its traditional roots through to a mainstream pop-culture thanks to shows such as the UK’s “Strictly Come Dancing”. The Buenos Aires Tango Festival in Rome is a fairly new addition to the cities attractions, held yearly at the Paro Della Musica. During the festival, experienced dancers and beginners join forces for a series of classes, demonstrations and shows. Among previous highlights have been appearances from famous dancers such as Daniel Piazzolla.
