Some Frequently Asked Tango Questions
What About Shoes?
The right shoes for both men and women make a big difference in dancing tango. Smooth soles and good support are essential for the turning steps of the dance. Please bring dance shoes and change upon arrival at the dance event to protect studio floors. Of course the best tango shoes come from Argentina! But you find others online or in the listings for our special events.
Do I Need a Partner?
Yes and No. Tango is a partner dance: it can be very enjoyable for partners to begin learning tango together. However, people without a regular dance partner are welcome at Queen City Tango events and part of the enjoyment of a tango community is meeting new friends on the dance floor.
How Can I Find Good Tango Music?
- Streaming radio broadcast from Buenos Aries La 2 x 4 plays tango music around the clock.
- You can choose individual songs to hear at TODO Tango.
- Visit Pandora Radio and enter the name of any prominent tango musician (such as Carlos Gardel or Anibal Troilo) and the program will build you a playlist of wonderful music.
