Code of Tango Etiquette
when you (fancy yourself to be) "the better dancer"
you (fancy yourself to be) "the poorer dancer"
you really don't want to dance
asking a lady to dance with you
asking a gentleman for a dance (or, asking by not-asking)
explanations - a useful habit
dances you don't want
when you refuse a dance (ladies)
and, exception to the "three-to-one" rule
do we use codes, anyway? why not just say what we mean and mean what we say?
well, apparently there are real sociolinguistic reasons why etiquette exists in the first place.
