"How remarkable that ballroom dancing, which would appear to be so rigid and haughty can radiate such humanity, such warmth, such unpretentiousness. Of course the tango is aggressive and rather arrogant, despite its proletarian origins, while the country landler and liscio dances retain their relaxed, and festive jollity intact."
Birgitta Holm, professor of literatur
