A friend sent me this. The opening suggests that it is the ragtime version of Argentine Tango. The clip was made for archival purposes and appears to have been reconstructed from an early dance manual(s) from the Library of Congress.

Under "Ragtime" are three Clips labeled "Argentine Tango". Clicking a Clip leads to a detailed description including links to videos of all three. An edited selection from the descriptions is given below.

Richard Powers of Stanford taught Ragtime tango around the USA, including in Denver. He brings a wealth of knowledge, of history, of evolution of dance, of styles, riveting one's attention all the while. Richard is also a founder of the tango movement in the USA which we now enjoy.

Enjoy,
DJ Dave de Denver

Thanks, Dave, for digging up more info on the clip.

A friend, Steve Pastor, sent me this with a request to send to the list. It's couple of archived emails concerning a book that Richard Powers referenced on early Argentine Tango.
