There are two types of tango that people may get confused with such as the American and the Argentine Tango. The Argentine tango will make use of softer music as compared to the American Tango. If you would compare the dances that you have to do, the American tango will require you to use your body more. If you would be dancing the Argentine Tango, you can expect that you are going to use a lot of your legs and your feet. Another thing that you will notice is how close the dancers are going to be to each other. You can dance closer to your partner when you are doing the Argentine tango as compared to when you are dancing the American tango.

Even the different dances that are available will always come with versions depending on where they are danced. One example is Argentine and American tango. When it comes to movements, you may notice that the American Tango will make use of the body more. The Argentine Tango is sometimes considered to be more of a spot dance, which means that the legs and the feet are used more in order to move. Another main difference is the type of music that is used in order to dance these types of Tango dance. The music can be softer for the American Tango as compared to the Argentine Tango. Remember that American Tango is considered to be more formal as compared to the Argentine Tango.
