Tango Buenos Aires was created for the "Jazmines" festival at the famous cabaret "Michelangelo," the most important club for Tango in Buenos Aires. The company met with tremendous success and in 1986 they traveled to New York City's Delacorte Theatre in Central Park to represent Argentina in the Latin-American Festival. Since then, Tango Buenos Aires has become one of Argentina's great cultural exports, known throughout the Americas, Europe and the Far East as the most authentic and uncompromising representative of the Tango. Their extensive tours have crossed the globe many times over.
