Sultry, sexy is a passionate partner dance from South America, originating in the 1890s along the Río de la Plata, between Uruguay and Argentina.

There are several popular styles and forms of tango (from the Latin to “touch”).

The complex history of the tango is told at history-of-tango.com and we posted the a lesson to get you started. We also found a some steps of the Americanized tango at ballroomdancers.com/dances/info.asp?sid=240

We couldn't resist — we've included the scene from "Scent of a Woman" when Al Pacino teaches Gabrielle Anwar how to dance the tango.
