I am always amazed by the strength of dancers. Lifting a person without hurting them is hard enough, lifting a hunk of solid muscle, and making it look good is inconceivable to me. And trusting someone enough to let them throw you around-- just stunning.

Have you come across Los Hermanos Macanas? They're wonderful, too.

There's a long tradition of men dancing tango together in Buenos Aires. Traditionally men practiced with each other before inviting women to dance at the milongas. I've seen some fantastic male couples over the years, including Los Hermanas Macanas, who charliecochrane mentioned.

When I learned Argentine tango in university, I somehow ended up with two male partners all to myself. (Usually there were not enough men to go around, so I'm not sure how this happened, but it was bliss.) In preparation for the final performance, we choreographed a little thing where the two boys competed briefly over me, the girl, and then pushed me aside and just danced with each other. Roses were involved. My dance teacher, who would just as soon have been dancing with the guys anyway, was very pleased with us (for honoring the dance's history, of course) and staged us front and center. The house roared.
