Hoping to further promote the already-great relationship between the city of Philadelphia and Argentina, open-air Argentinian tango demonstrations have been a major player in the city's Argentine Week. Even through the chilly weather, the dancing, culture and people of, and interested in, Argentina are heating up Philly. 

Open-air tango demonstrations figured heavily in the planning of Argentine Week in Philadelphia, a cultural celebration organized by the Embassy of Argentina, but the weather has not cooperated. Tango demonstrations scheduled for Monday and Tuesday were cancelled, but on Thursday about a dozen devotees of the Argentine style gathered in Love Park to show off their skills.

The sky-blue flag of Argentina whipped around in the chilly wind as the dancers arrived in overcoats and gloves, but the jackets came off as the dancers warmed up. They were brought together by Meredith Klein, director of the Philadelphia Argentine Tango School.
