ALVAREZ SEARA, Jose Manuel  e  CHAVES, Elisângela. Tango and samba: deconstructing stereotypes. Rev. Subj. [online]. 2019, vol.19, n.2, pp. 1-13. ISSN 2359-0769.

The tango and samba gafieira dances can be expressions of leisure where a certain hegemonic heteronormativity predominates. Also, in recent years has been developing in different countries a movement of people who question, resist and propose alternatives to heteronormativity in ballroom dance. This work identify the resistances, alternatives and innovative proposals by people to the hegemonic heteronormativity in tango and samba gafieira dances, by using a qualitative methodology, a study of multiples cases, in which 30 people were interviewed and 30 observations were made in dance schools and open spaces of three Latin American cities (Buenos Aires, Montevideo and São Paulo). The results reveal a clear perception of teachers and dancers about the stereotypes that through these dances reinforce hegemonic heteronormativity. As well, resistance movements in the actions and strategies used by people in the three cities mentioned to enjoy dance without restriction.
