Re: why is tango called the most exotic dance Posted by OZ 3/3/2012 1:13:00 PM
Many years ago before most of you were born the Tango had a reputation as being an exotic dance. I think some are quoting from way back in the past. It along with even the Modern Waltz was given a reputation by many church authorities. I think today the most exotic dance would have to be the International Rumba. If performed correctly it is supposed to be telling a story which requires about 60 percent acting. Again we are looking at a very toned down Rumba for the Medalist. Which bears very little resemblance to the competition Rumba where every gesture has a story behind it.
