Daejin (Bryan) Kim 3/1/07 DAN202 Tango The form of tango has long disappeared over the years from the dance floors. It is still existent in many parts of the world, but compared to its most popular era, it is almost as if the form has disappeared. Once a very popular and renowned dance form, it was practiced all over the world. This form was originated from Argentina, although most people agree that it was ultimately developed and spread to the rest of Europe through Spain. Tango refers to the dance and the music altogether that has evolved together. Despite the common misconception that tango is a very eloquent and prestigious dance, it was originated from lower-class districts of Buenos Aires, the capital of Argentina. Because of this origin, tango was once called Musica Portena, music of the ports. Buenos Aires was almost like the contemporary Paris of Latin America. Majority of the population of Buenos Aires was immigrants or descendents of them. Around the southeastern part of the city’s ghetto ports, were many deprived residents and run-down bars and restaurants, along with women turned out to be a consolation for those people. The lives of these lower-class people became the Latin music’s passion and reconciliation, thus becoming the sentiment of tango.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
