My first moments in Arrabal Tango Club.

I discovered yesterday that Second Life, the virtual role-playing environment, has a location for tango: Arrabal Tango Club.

I am not very familiar with Second Life, myself. I have an avatar, but have yet to spend much time exploring it.

The Arrabal Tango Club is nicely designed. When I teleported there, my avatar was clothed in black. I walked into the bar. I passed another female player on my way in.

At this point I'm trying to figure out how to get my avatar to sit on a bar stool. I have no idea what will happen when I try to dance tango.


Is anyone reading my blog involved with this SL location? I would like to know more about how it got started, and who plays it. Are the players tango dancers in real life?


PS - Check out this video of animated tango dancing that the creators of this SL world made when they first launched it. It's incredible.
