Animal Farm here we come :-)

A poll on an Argentine thread?  I'm thinking Argentine would win!

er, good point.  Perhaps we should have it on the Internationa Tango thread.  There isn't one but I can make it in a jiffy now - and make myself the only mod... hehehe. [power corrupts they say...}

Int'l Standard tango is my true love. Argentine tango is my mistress. Each of them knows about the other and they're all OK with it. Smiley

I love the quote!  Very insightful, although with me, it might be the other way around.
As soon as I discovered tango, I didn't want to learn anything else, although I have to admit, slow fox and quickstep are giving tango a run for its money (yes, I know, blasphemous!)

Why would anyone want to be CURED!!

This is the only addiction that is good for you - Body and Mind!

I love International Tango but Argentine is getting under my skin after I watched Gilles perform it on Dancing with the Stars!  Wink

Just back from a wonderful AT weekender so I'll answer my own question - no, there is no known cure ..... it's a case instead of managing the disease Wink

There's simply no other dance like it!

i dont think there's any point in comparing intl tango and AT, so i'm not going to.

OMG, there's no way to compare the two.  I'm primarily an International dancer and always will be.  Having said that I've recently come into AT and there's just so much 'play' in it.  As a lead I'm loving the control I get to have and really it's translating back into my International.  So much fun to dance AT and it can be soooo sexy and flirty.
