What is “Nuevo Tango?”
Nuevo Tango is both a form of music incorporated into traditional Argentine Tango and the evolution of the classical tango dance. Twenty years ago, the Tango Investigation Group, founded by Gustavo Naveira and Fabian Salas, applied the principles of dance kinesiology to the physics of movement in Argentine tango. From its inception, the Nuevo Tango movement has provoked a shift in tango dance interpretation. “Tango dancing is growing, improving, developing, enriching itself, and in that sense we are moving toward a new dimension of Tango dancing….” (G. Naveira). Nuevo Tango includes moves from classical Argentine Tango reinterpreted and danced to new tango music selections. Nuevo Tango is not only different in its approach to the tango embrace used in classical Argentine Tango to define tango dance styles, but also in its off-axis moves, playfulness, and attention to rhythm and melody in the tango dance and music. Another important evolution from classical Argentine Tango within the Nuevo Tango movement is a greater emphasis placed upon improvisational tango skill of the woman’s tango dance interpretation. Some Nuevo Tango dancers explore incorporation of elements of other than tango dance forms such as salsa, ballroom, and swing and turn them into Nuevo Tango moves. This further enriches Nuevo Tango’s expressive possibilities within the evolution of tango dance artistry.
Apart from Nuevo Tango and Latin Mix group class on Fridays 7-9pm, the Gagliardi Studio & Gallery in Nyack, NY also offer private Salsa, Cha-Cha, Special Tango Events and Parties.

“And those who were seen dancing were thought to be insane
by those who could not hear the music.”
