Drop In Tango - Activity Info. Montevideo - Uruguay

The origins of this local tradition remain unclear, but every Saturday people gather to watch and dance the tango in Plaza Entrevero, just outside of Ciudad Vieja. A stereo appears by late afternoon to early evening and begins crooning that signature tango music, beaconing participants to jump in at will. Locals describe this specific rendezvous as "classic classic" tango, meaning you get that older, slower tango vibe (and consequently an older crowd). Bring your own dance partner, or the determination to find one.
