    Hi im Ivan from Argentina. Sorry for mi english. I´m a tango dancer and this is not tango, this people dance like a ROBOT. No Style, No Rhythm, No Tempo. Horrible.

    Good instructable, but... Please do me a favor: if you are going to learn Tango, learn Argentine tango. It is the original version, it is MUCH NICER and it is much hotter.

    Ditto. Nothing matches the intimacy and passion of Argentine Tango. Don't get caught up in the Tango for export you see on TV, either. :)
