Enjoyable performance. I have seen tango groups before that seemed to have a bit more fire and passion. Music good.

I have seen tango troupes and enjoyed the excitement, artistry and sensuality. Technically, this group was adept, but we kept waiting for the "fire and passion" that never came. What a disappointment. A note about the venue: We had orchestra seats...

This show was enjoyable, but does not compare to a Tango show in Buenos Aires....There it has more of a Cabaret style with singing as well as dancing.

I've seen various Tango performances in the past so this was not my first experience. I would rate this performance as only "fair." There were a few wonderful displays of dance, and symmetry but few occasions of real FIRE and...continued

This was a great performance. It had a story of sorts that connected the dances. The small orchestra was outstanding and the dancing was excellent. It was a very enjoyable time.

This is the 2nd year I've attended "Tango". Having studied tango in Buenois Aires, I can honestly say it brought back fabulous memories of the Milonges. Wonderful choreography and entertainment. Seats were row "O" orchestra near center..fabulous!!

This was one of the best dance performances I've seen at the Performing Arts Center! Magnificent dancers in dazzlingly beautiful costumes doing the tango to skillfully played music. How can you beat that!

The dancers and orchestra were fabulous but our seats were terrible! We were over on the far right side near the exits and they had closed off a lot of the left and right sides of the stage so we couldn't see half the orchestra and had to wait...continued

Very entertaining. Great dancing. Good seats. (It seemed a little shorter but maybe we were having too much fun.)

Loved the show. Not happy with our seats, which view of the performers were obstructed by deep side curtains. Some venues do not even have curtains, but this one had very deep ones. After intermission, we moved down a few seats towards the...

Martha enjoyed it more than George. However, we both think that the tango dancers are getting every day more gymnastic than fluid and sensual. Not too long ago Martha attended a tango performance at the Ford Theater that she considered the best...continued

Great dancing, truly great music and musicians, but not great choreography or directing. By dressing all male and female dancers the same, and stressing uniformity by not allowing individual personalities to shine, the company looks perfectly...continued
