"The Argentine tango isn't here to place nicely with the other children.  The Argentine tango is here to seduce your women, spills things on your rug, and sneak out your bedroom window in the middle of the night.  It's the unabashed tomcat of dances, consisting primarily of swagger and sex, and it's a hell of a lot of fun.  Which is why you'll find dancers from every side of the fence showing up for the competitions, wearing painted-on pants and lingerie disguised as dresses, all of them ready to get their freak on.  Under carefully controlled and rigorously judged conditions, that is.


The Argentine tango.  Because sometimes, dirty dancing comes with rules."
