By whom and in which context have you seen that statement?

Considering Argentine Tango as a very erotic dance: Depends. But exotic? Have yet to see that statement myself.

I believe the most credit is due, to Rudoplh Valentino

If this is exotic, I'm giving up!

I've never heard anyone make that claim to tango. Erotic, perhaps - but RV certainly wasn't that, either!

Telemark,
You're just jealous...lol. That's actually pretty bad...okay really bad...okay really really really bad.

I don't see exotic. It's pretty standard fare....even Argentine we are still at pretty much not exotic but perhaps erotic if danced well.

What dance would you call exotic...maybe I'm jaded but none of them seem that exotic. Even the newer takes on Latin like Bachata aren't really exotic.

Many years ago before most of you were born the Tango had a reputation as being an exotic dance. I think some are quoting from way back in the past. It along with even the Modern Waltz was given a reputation by many church authorities. I think today the most exotic dance would have to be the International Rumba. If performed correctly it is supposed to be telling a story which requires about 60 percent acting. Again we are looking at a very toned down Rumba for the Medalist. Which bears very little resemblance to the competition Rumba where every gesture has a story behind it.

I don't describe it as EXOTIC or EROTIC like other members do. I will describe it as SENSUAL, AWESOME and RIVETING! A well danced tango, especially Argentine Tango, has that "WOW FACTOR" in it. Of course, as the saying goes, "Beauty is in the eye of the beholder", YES?
