The problem with portraying tango in art is that it requires the viewer to understand tango and is I think limited by their experience of the embrace. To people who haven't experienced a good embrace it tends to look rather dull. The obvious solution is to do what everyone does instead - then you don't need that experience.
The only way I've seen around this that I like is photographic close-ups, particularly focusing on the woman's face.
For me the solution is by simply portraying the woman in abstract, trying to express how she made me feel.
