Canyengue & The Early Tango

There is no single style of Argentine Tango that is the one and only original style. Tango Canyengue was one of the early forms of Tango, popular at the beginning of the 20th century. It was danced with a different kind of embrace compared to what we use nowadays. It is also danced with bent knees.
