The tango was a dance characterised by the partners maintaining close body proximity throughout, and an alternating pace of slow, flowing movements interspersed with faster, sharper ones.[1] It originated in the River Plate region that formed the natural border between the countries of Argentina and Uruguay.[1]

The elderly witches and wizards who resided at St Oswald's Home for Old Witches and Wizards no longer had to use magic for practical, day-to-day purposes. Thus, they used it toward a variety of whimsical ends, including making the male nurses who worked at the care home do the tango.[2]
