On Her 92nd Birthday, She Wants To Show That She Can Still Dance
The tango is one of the most popular forms of partner dance in the world. Originating in the 1890s along the Rio de la Plata, the sensual ballroom dance soon spread all throughout the world. One of the most common characteristics of ballroom tango is the strong, dramatic head snaps. One interesting fact about the tango is that it was originally performed only by women. It was not until the dance spread to Argentina that it developed into a routine for couples. When you watch the video below, you'll see that although the movements are graceful and fluid, the tango is a passionate, expressive dance form. However, seeing it danced this well by someone who is 92 years old is quite rare.
