Through steps and emotions, tango creates a special bond among dancers

Digital Original

Originating from Latin America, with its roots in Argentina, tango is viewed by its practitioners as a kind of non-verbal communication – while dancing together, two partners communicate through their body and energy.

The power of tango brings many dancers from all over the world together, able to share very special moments without saying a word.

Tango Mercurio is a nonprofit organization for tango and outreach in Washington D.C. It provides tango classes and a social platform for tango dancers.

CGTN’s Zixuan Zhao interviewed people at a Tango Mercurio event, as they danced and discussed what tango brings out in them. Take a look at the video below and learn how people from different places connected with this beautiful art.
