There is no one way or style to dance tango.

That's what makes tango such a unique and fascinating dance! 
Here you will find six diverse interpretations by famous dancers to La Cumparista.

This iconic song (written in 1916 by a Uruguayan) has become widely known as the anthem of tango music and is usually played as the last song of a milonga.  In Turkey it is popular as a wedding dance!  Gene Kelly danced to it in 1945 film Anchors Away, while crooner Julio Iglesias scored a hit with his 1996 cover – and it continues to be favoured soundtrack to gymnastic routines.
