    An El Segundo dance studio entertained passengers at LAX by dancing the Argentine Tango over the Valentine’s Day weekend. This report aired on the NBC4 News at 6 p.m. on Sunday, Feb. 15, 2015. (Published Sunday, Feb. 15, 2015)

    There's probably no other dance that conveys the message of romance and passion better than the tango.

    To help spread the love, a group of 40 local dancers took the Argentine tango to a SoCal airport terminal on Sunday.

    "Tango is symbolic of Valentine's, of relationships, of love, of passion, of everything that is joy in your life," said dance instructor and event organizer Ilona Glinarsky.  "We wanted to bring a little bit of joy and maybe a little love to a place that seems to be a little dry and a little stressful at times."

    Although it was the day after Valentine’s, the group of dancers from Living Tango dance studio in El Segundo put on quite a show in the Tom Bradley International Terminal at Los Angeles International Airport.

    Men and women dressed in red and black performed the highly improvisational dance.

    The first few bars of the song were choreographed, but the rest of the performance was completely improvised, Glinarsky told NBC4.

    In addition to a free show, the Living Tango dancers treated travelers to Valentine’s candy.
