Learning To Samba With Bruno Tonioli

Dancing With The Stars' Bruno Tonioli teaches Queer as Folk’s Robert Gant how to samba. Now I am certainly not a professionally trained dancer here, but those moves are not exactly what come to my mind when I think of samba.

You gotta love Bruno though for pronouncing Brrrrrrazil with about 6 r's, and for asking us to imagine a hustler down in Copacabana beach strutting his stuff. Precious.

Next time someone better give those kids a pair of heels and a sequined outfit with a feathered headdress.
