Tango found refuge at the cabarets in the Recoleta area. Shows were developed for tourists, and included a variety of performers, magicians, showgirls, contortionists, folklore dancers, stand up comics and of course tango. Our show will present different forms using tango as the theme. Tickets at www.learnargentinetango.com For more information: 917-373-7446
