    Yes indeed. I'd still be grateful to dance like the former, though!

    yeah, I thought it was flat too. Still, the choreography wasnt too bad - you could see they'd put a lot of effort into it.

    I'm sorry but it's completely false to compare it to Bruno & Mariaangeles. They a) are superb dancers b) make it look improvised rather than choreographed and c) have chosen a song that works with tango, rather than one like Apologise which doesnt really.

    I dunno. I mean, "works with tango" is rather subjective. Some people don't feel that anything written past 1950 works with tango. I didn't much care for this song, but if it makes them happy...eh. Hell, I think "Closer" by NIN would make a fabulous tango. Shrug.

    As for the comparison...that's sort of my point. I mean, they managed to make theirs look spectacular.

    Often beginners go for visual attraction, but experienced eye goes for subtleties :cool:

    Plain following is much better than helicopter falling moves that were presented in the video.

    nIN'S song is not a patch on Joy Division's Closer: Heart and Soul, Passover or The Eternal...

    but I dont like their choice of song...
