Argentines took part in the annual Great National Milonga on Saturday (December 02), a mass street tango performance, to celebrate the famous dance.

Buenos Aires' Avenida de Mayo became an outdoor street tango dance salon -- known as a "milonga" - for the annual event, which marks National Tango Day.

The tango originated in the early 19th century in the working-class port areas of Buenos Aires.

Now a ballroom dance popular around the world, couples still can be seen passionately dancing the tango on the streets of Buenos Aires' traditional neighbourhoods.
