The wealthy boys and men of Argentina saw this mating dance as great way to attract women in their own communities as well as during sojourns to Paris, which at that time was the world’s cultural capital. When it was first danced in Paris everyone was shocked by its sensuality and raw attraction, but that it was titillating is no mistake. During this time, it was referred, to as a tango craze that rapidly swept most of Europe before it reaches America before the First World War period.
looking at newspapers dating back to 1916 in New York there was advertisements coming from more than seven hundred tango clubs already only in that city. High societies and people of so-called good taste did no find tango tasteful especially not the original argentine tango and this is how different versions of tango was established. Tango was heavily sanitized before it reached the upper class dance academies across the Americas and European dance academies. The modified version of tango is something you still find today in ballroom competitions. Fortunately, for the Argentine people the people of Paris also became tango mad even though it was a modified version of the original tango and this is how tango became accepted in Argentine across all societies.
Whereas the tango dancers previously found themselves performing their dances in backstreets and seedy nightclubs, they rose to become adored and respected dancers and musicians. It became the middle and upper classes’ courtship dance and during the early 1940’s which is called tango’s Golden Age you would have found hundreds of thousands of people dancing the tango and tango orchestras become so popular that they were booked a whole year in advance. Even in Argentina, neighbourhoods started their own versions of the original dance that become popular dance competitions.
