There really is a tango show for everyone, from passionate tangueros to curious tourists, from young adventurers looking for a low-budget tango experience to senior travellers after a more lavish night out. The format is usually a dinner show with a variety of dancers and musicians performing over a period of somewhere between 1.5 and 3 hours.
