The unmoderated mailing list "TANGO-L" has been created for discussion about any and all aspects of the dance of Tango Argentino (Argentine Tango). It is specifically intended to cover the Argentine form of this dance, rather than the International Standard or American Social "ballroom" forms, but articles about the latter may be appropriate insofar as they are being contrasted to or otherwise refer to the Argentine form.
The mailing list is set up as a reflector, so that any article mailed to the list at tango-L@mitvma.mit.edu will be redistributed automatically to all subscribers of the list. This list is available in a (daily) digest form.
Anyone can subscribe by sending a message to email@example.com , with the following command in the BODY of the message (the "Subject:" line is ignored): subscribe tango-L Your Full Name

If you want to know what the excitement is about Argentine Tango, there are three one-hour Videos taken from the archives of Solo Tango, the full-time tango TV station in Buenos Aires. These programs are a mixture of Stage/Exhibition sequences, "MTV-like" music videos (except that many of these are from the 1950's!), and footage performances by famous orchestras.
Daniel Trenner has been teaching Argentine Style Tango for a number of years. He has also led four Bridge to the Tango Tours to Buenos Aires, and the fifth one, limited to 35 dancers, is scheduled for March of 1997. Daniel regulary tours the United States and Europe giving tango workshops for both beginning and continuing level dancers.
