I think clif hit a very important point, even if his 'ALL foreigners' statement may be on the strong side.

As far true as it would be if all foreigners all of a sudden would stop to go to - let's say Venice - for comparison. Tango originates from Buenos Aires, no doubts, but without foreigners taking it to the rest of the world and actually also taking it back from there tango would have either stayed small and unrecognized or be long time gone.

Absolutely true. Sometimes one thinks being a masochist paying a lot of money to travel down to Buenos Aires only to be looked at from high above while being there.

Maybe one reason why a lot of americans travel over to TangoMagia-Festival in Amsterdam, Holland, at the end of each year. And why europeans travel over to the U.S. for ie. Portland Tango Oktoberfest or Denver Tango Fest. There's (at least) a lot of high class dancing outside of Buenos Aires. 
> But hey, that is just the old guy from Texas.
Same here: just a guy from Central Europe.
