Tango in Turkey – in recent years, spread like a wildfire

Dancing Tango

Tango in Turkey, in recent years, it spread like a wildfire. Over the past decade, Turkey has become a renowned hot spot for Argentina’s popular dance form.

Mi Corazón is playing in the conference room of the Armada Hotel in Istanbul and the lobby is full of tango students resting their feet and gabbing about vueltas and pasadas. It’s easy to distinguish the dancers from the tourists: just look at their shoes. The women’s high heels, trimmed in satin and crystal buckles, have ankle straps to facilitate walking backward. The men sport snazzy patent leather numbers crested with silver laminate trim and polka dots.

Some Milongas-in Turkey

Milongas, or traditional Argentine tango parties, take place every night, in luxurious rooftop nightclubs against panoramic views of the glittering skyline of palaces, mosques, and minarets. They go on until the early hours of the morning as if no one had a job to go to (and almost no one does, in this economy). The practicas in schools and clubs throughout the city are always full. The dancing is of the highest standards: the most renowned tango masters from Argentina arrive regularly to give performances and workshops; the maestros Ariadna Naveira and Fernando Sanchez flew in from Argentina for the most recent Ritual. Turkish dancers are fixtures at festivals in Argentina and Europe.

The Istanbul scene is distinguished not so much by its artistic innovation – the style favored hews closely to the Argentine tradition – as by its unusual friendliness, dynamism and, in particular, its youthfulness. “In Turkey, the tango community is a very young group,” says Eser Çakr, a student from the northwestern city of Eskisehir. “In Europe, it’s older. So people are making progress here faster because young people learn faster.” Nuevo tango, or modern tango, is particularly popular. In countries where the dancers are older, he says, “they prefer classical tango”.
