Tango Topics | Exploring Your Dance

« Back to Glossary Index

Argentine Chacarera is one of several folk dances that Tango is a part of. Sometimes you’ll see this at Milongas, especially in Buenos Aires (sometimes at Salon Canning and sometimes at Villa Malcolm and at La Viruta!), with a Chacarera ‘break’ for a tanda of songs in the style of Chacarera. The dance itself is insanely simple, and loads of fun to do. However, it also has loads and loads of intricacies for both roles that need not be learned in order to dance the dance, but like tango does take time, patience and understanding to master.
