Tango was initially danced in bars, cafes, gambling houses, and quilombos. Later on, "Dancing Houses," that provided girls for dancing and entertainment appeared. Decent families and women of good reputation did not want any part of this.

Groups of men would get together to practice, improvise and innovate, creating new moves and new steps this approach allowed a rapid development of this dance.

Argentina developed fast between 1880 and 1930. The very rich had the habit of going to Europe at least once a year. They had big homes in Paris or London. The sons of those people remained in Europe to study. It was they that introduced Argentine Tango to the Parisian nobility. Tango became the craze of the time.

Everybody started giving parties with Argentinean orchestras, tango lessons and milongas. Women's fashion had to change to adjust to the moves of tango. The very bulky dresses were replaced by lighter, looser ones. Tango became the dance of the moment; from Paris, rapidly migrated to the other big capitals, London, Rome, Berlin, and finally New York. Tango returned to Buenos Aires dressed in a tuxedo.
