Summary:
Latin dance forms enjoy great popularity in the United States for reasons beyond being exuberant and enjoyable dance styles. The Prohibition era sent American tourists to Cuba, where they learned adaptations of Latin dances and brought them back home, while the tango of Argentina first arrived in the United States almost 100 years ago.
