    Just a bit of frivolity

    Who do you know of who dances tango as a hobby?

    I can think of Clive James (wish he were Prime Minister) and I think Joeley Richardson learnt to tango for an episode of Nip/Tuck (don't know whether she took it up though).

    And - for a further bit of frivolity: Who would your fantasy tango partner be (excluding professional tango dancers)... Hmm, think mine would be Bryan Ferry because he's so suave! :)

    Yes, and TN seems quite down to earth (for a Hollywood star).

    I wonder if there are any famous closet tango dancers, who dare not admit their addiction!

    :) And one would presume that the tango community aren't the type to go blabbing to the tabloids so they can exercise their addiction with alacrity... either that or they go to the Priory ;-)

    Actually, a few years ago, my partner and I were in North Hollywood where we went to eat at a Hole-in-the-Wall on some corner of an indescript neighborhood. When we entered, we found shabby lighting, picnic style tables, a fair amount of noise, 2 bands (one playing only lambadas and the other only Arg. Tangos...alternatively every half hour). We also found the place to be crowded with celebs; stars, directors, writers, producers. After dancing, we were invited to one director's table, and subsequently offered a dancing role in a movie project. Unfortunately, this was on sat., they were filming on mon., but we had prior obligations across the country on tues., and had to decline.

    Wow! I take it you weren't expecting to even have a band to dance to?

    Well, we were told to go there. We were anticipating the band and the music, just not the ambiance or celebs, and, certainly, not being offerred a role. It was a fun eve.

    He does... he lives in northern Virginia and has renovated his stables into a gorgeous ballroom that was featured a few years back in Architectural Digest.
    Some of our tango community have been privleged enough to have been invited to dance there, but alas it was "before my time". I understand that he does not have as many milongas as he once had having caught some friction from his neighbors or something regarding them...what a shame.... it would have been fun.
