Decades before 'Mr. and Mrs. Smith' and 'Dancing With the Stars' popularized the tango for the masses, this dance has been a symbol of passion and sexiness on the streets of South America. Its exact origin is disputed, but the dancing style, which was started somewhere in the regions of Argentina and Uruguay, is finally getting proper recognition from UNESCO’s Intergovernmental Committee of Intangible Heritage. 

The decision came this week from Dubai, and means the dance and its music gain a "protected cultural status," but also that the two countries can more easily access public funds for promoting the dance. Stats for Immortalizing Classic Dances Trending: Older & Mild
