Tango Buenos Aires has become one of Argentina’s great cultural exports, known throughout the Americas, Europe and the Far East as the most authentic and uncompromising representative of the Tango. Tango Buenos Aires was created by renowned composer and tango director Osvaldo Requena and was instantly greeted with tremendous success. The company has traveled throughout the world to include, Germany, Spain, Ecuador, Mexico, Australia, New Zealand, Malaysia, Thailand, Chile, Brazil, the United States, Japan, China, Finland, Portugal, Greece, and Canada. In Beijing, the company hosted a series of unprecedented master classes and residencies with Chinese dancers at the Dance University of Beijing, teaching the origin and evolution of the Tango and further international understanding and cooperation – and introduced the Tango to Indonesia for the first time ever.
