If you’ve been watching “So You Think You Can Dance,” then you know that the show’s go-to Argentine tango specialists are Miriam Larici and Leonardo Barrionuevo. On the June 2, 2013 show, you’ll see more of their choreography and if that inspires you to get out and try to tangle with tango, you’ll have plenty of opportunities this month.
