In this note we present mathematical models for Argentine tango. After giving a simplified description of this dance in Section 1, we introduce continuous, discrete, and group theoretical models for a couple dancing Argentine tango in Section 2. In Section 3 we compute the fundamental group class of a dance. We extend our models to the case of several couples.
