Tango is one of the most sensual and fascinating dances. It originated from Argentina in the early twentieth century and has influences from African, Native American and European culture. It is danced to a repetitive style of music, with the count of the music being either 16 or 32 beats. The woman is typically held in the crook of the man’s arm. She holds her head back and rests her right hand on the man's lower hip. The man must allow the woman to rest in this position while leading her around the floor in a curving pattern.
