Out of curiosity I started googling some more and less famous dancers, to compare popularity on the web. Some interesting results…

Methodology: I simply searched for the complete name (exact phrase) as listed below and the word “tango” and made a note of the number of hits. Suggestions for improvements and important omissions are welcome. The ones best known by their first name or nickname are a bit tricky, but this is the result so far. Enjoy:
