A query for you…what should be the collective noun for a group of Argentine Tango dancers?

A search for collective nouns via google provides some fantastic inventions:

  • An annoyance of mobile phones
  • An absence of waiters
  • A tyranny of dictators

If you missed the State Opera’s production of La Boheme recently, you would not have seen Mark Stojani’s performance on stage at the Adelaide Festival Theatre (along with Valentyna). I read a review of the performance a little while later in the Adelaide Review which referred to the “gaggle of stagehands” and Mark and I were discussing whether “a gaggle of tango dancers” was appropriate given the mayhem that occurs between classes at Eastwood as people catch up on news! Your thoughts….??
