Oh *that's* what you're going on about. It's
understandable you'd take that as trolling, but
actually, it wasn't meant to be. According to
the local university ballroom instructor, who is
a brilliant instructor with years of successful
competitive experience and has done extensive
research on ballroom, the standard military-style
tango music of international ballroom tango did
come from the influence of Adolph Hitler, who
found Argentine music too "sissylike," and
therefore "inappropriate" for German dancers.
