    Really Sad

    Just heard at a competition on the weekend that a studio belonging to one of Aussie TV's judges on Dancing with the stars has been deliberately burned down! Apparently its all gone, nothing was salvageable. Makes you wonder what sort of person would do something like that! Although it...

    Dance Movies

    There is one called Mad About Mambo... a film set in Ireland with the lead played by Keri Russell. Burn the Floor...which I personally think is a MUST see! Assasination Tango has some great Tango scenes in it although the movie itself I though was average..
