A tango event

Found it! 'He held tightly onto his partner and had her do a headfirst somersault.'

I knew I'd read this description of a tango event in a well-researched history of tango, and it's taken me a while to re-find it. The question is: did this event occur in a) 1948: b) 1997: c) 2009?

Bonus points for answering where: a) on the set of 'The Tango Lesson': b) Club Nelson; c) Cachirulo milonga?

Dear Tangocommuter,

Such an intriguing question! I can't help but do a quick google search ;) The answer being a) 1948 and b) Club Nelson, from the book "Tango: the Art History of Love" that you have now made me want to buy to read for myself.

Any prizes for guessing (or googling) correctly?

Oh man. Preen&amp's answer is priceless.

A more sober qualifier: but it happens only before 2 AM.
