"I think those who say that you can't tango if you are not Argentine are mistaken. Tango was an immigrant music...so it does not have a nationaily. It's only a passport to a feeling." (Carlos Gavito)

A recent comment by a belly dancer friend about how sometimes non-middle Eastern women were criticised for dancing the belly dance, because it was "not their dance" prompted this post.
