Montreal is the multicultural epicentre of Quebec, and one of the most diverse cities in the world. You can walk from one neighborhood to another and feel like you’re in a different city, and even sometimes as if you are in Buenos Aires.

Tango is a partner dance and social dance that originated in the 188s along the Río de la Plata, the river that separates Argentina and Uruguay. Tango was born in the impoverished port areas of Buenos Aires, as a result of a combination of Rioplatense Candombe celebrations, Spanish-Cuban Habanera, and Argentinean Milonga.

The tango was frequently practiced in the brothels and bars of ports, where business owners employed bands to entertain their patrons with music. The tango then spread to the rest of the world. Many variations of this dance currently exist around the world.
