Tango Was From Argentina

Tango is a social dance form that shaped in Buenos Aires, Argentina from various roots. The musical styles that evolved together with the dance are also known as "tango".

Early tango was known as tango criollo or simply tango. Today, there are many tango dance styles including Argentine tango, ballroom tango (American and International styles), Finnish tango, Chinese tango, and vintage tangos.

The Argentine tango is regarded as the "authentic" tango since it is closest to that originally danced in Argentina and Uruguay.

Ballroom Tango

Ballroom tango, divided in recent decades into the "International" (English) and "European" styles, has descended from the tango styles that developed when the tango first went abroad to Europe and North America. The dance was simplified, adapted to the preferences of conventional ballroom dancers, and incorporated into the repertoire used in International Ballroom dance competitions. English Tango was first codified in October 1922, when it was proposed that it should only be danced to modern tunes, ideally at 30 bars per minute (i.e. 120 beats per minute - assuming a 4/4 measure).
