Argentina and Uruguay
Tango is a dance that was influenced by both European and African culture; it was born near the border between Argentina and Uruguay, on the Rio de la Plata. It was originally developed by the lower classes because it was considered too flirtatious to be accepted and danced by polite society. However, eventually it became popular in Europe (especially France, Italy, Germany, and England) and managed to make its way back through the upper classes in South and Central America. It is danced with a partner and has many forms, such as Tango argentino, Salon Tango, Tango nuevo, Ballroom Tango, etc.
The first piece of music labeled as "tango" was composed in 1857.
1913 was called "The Year of the Tango" because it was the year the dance became not only socially acceptable but popular in high society.
It is common for women to wear feathers in their hats or hair while dancing the tango.
