It’s sexy, sultry, and seductive. To some it’s forbidden, for others it’s a brief moment of passion stemmed from just a few musical notes, which for centuries have created a stirring sensation on the dance floor. The tango is one of the most romantic forms of dance and while some have tried to ban the dance from their halls, others have embraced the tango for everything it stands for.

So, when the mood strikes, just dance. That’s what the people outside this Cathedral we doing when Cristina Passarelli grabbed this shot of couples doing the tango in Argentina.

Titled “Tango en frente de la Catedral”, the photo captures an awesome irony between the tango’s forbidden footwork and the church’s regimented principles.
