OK. Dancing with the Stars is not quite the same in Argentina as it is in, er, anywhere else. Warning: not office safe content. Well, depends on your office, I ‘spose.

This is one of the few photos Google can find of Cinthia with her clothes on. Oh, those crazy, wacky Argentines.

This is one of the few photos Google can find of Cinthia with her clothes on. Oh, those crazy, wacky Argentines, eh? We’d swap Las Malvinas for the Cinthia any old day. Oil schmoil.

This is – er – well, let’s just say, if Dancing With The Stars was like this everywhere, it would be the top rating show on TV.

As one Argentinian put it, “this is the worst show on our TV, but everyone watches it”.

As one US website opined:

You know how we feel about your secret viewing of Dancing with the Stars on TV. Just keep it to yourself and we’re all good.

But if we’re talking dancing shows down Sudamericana way, then we can chat about this shizz til our mamas tell us it’s time to come home, because they are making dancing shows most definitely watchable by men.

Apparently the young lady’s name is Cinthia Fernandez. Programs such as Bailando por un Sueno and other risque dance TV content continue to feature hotties stripping down to their oiled bodies beneath and pretending to shock the pretend judges all of whom are in on this wondrous conspiracy to turn dancing into a thing for guys.

The video is worth watching just for the look on the host’s face, which is priceless, as the two young people, you know, do their thang.

It’s art, I tell you. Sorta. Don’t say you haven’t been warned. Needless to say, Dear Reader, your faithful correspondent is shocked and appalled.

(Our thanks to eagle-eyed Colin Haycock for spotting this.)

    I’m tempted to send this to a woman I know who thought the dancers in “Rock of Ages” were too risqué…

    Back in the 19th century, every opera presented at the Paris Opera (oh, you know, the one with the phantom) was required to include a ballet. And the reason for that was thet the board of directors wanted to be able to keep close tabs on the mistress pool. And I guess if that’s what you’re looking for, picking out the next person on the basis of their moves is a pretty good rationale.

    And that’s why all those Italian and German operas from the 19th century all have ballet music written for them which is now generally cut, though often played separately (Dance of the Hours from La Gioconda comes to mind … “Hello Mudda, Hello Fadda…”).

    Some things never change….


    • Dance is, of course, a great way of expressing emotion, which is why it is a ubiquitous and much-loved component of every human society. In Argentina they have clearly isolated “lust” as the most easily expressed emotion …
