After a Sold-Out Debut in 2006,

Argentina’s Hottest Tango show returns to Canada




The tango, that most seductive of all dance forms, is Argentina’s gift to the world. Direct from Buenos Aires, TANGO FIRE is a show full of thrilling lifts, dramatic drops, whirling spins and the syncopated tangle of limbs that gave the dance its name. The tango has been called a vertical expression of horizontal desire, and the performers of TANGO FIRE will have audiences fanning themselves as they marvel at the laser-sharp precision of the dances. Exuding passion, lust, desire and just the right amount of danger, the dancers simply ignite the room. Blazing duets and rousing group routines tell the story of the history of the form.


“As the title goes, they were on Fire!” New York Times


Born in Buenos Aires—just like the tango itself—Artistic Director Yanina Fajar has performed with some of the best tango companies and orchestras in the world. Ms. Fajar and longtime dance partner Nelson Cellis have won the National Tango Competition and toured internationally for years. The pair choreographed TANGO FIRE and performs in the show along with four other couples, all accompanied by the sizzling Quatrotango Orchestra, comprised of piano, violin, double bass and the traditional Argentinean bandoneon.


“Their soulful, minor-keyed music was painfully beautiful and conjured visions of an ardent Argentina.” The Australian


“These glamorous men and women are the finest tango artists I’ve ever seen.” Boston Herald


With only two performances of this blistering show in Montreal and Toronto following a special appearance in Hamilton, the heat will be intense, but it won’t last long. Let the seduction begin!
