Hello, me again :p I am looking for some easy-intermediate piano ballroom dance pieses. You know: tango, foxtrot, waltz, etc. And I'm straining the expression not too hard[/b] as level, I guess mine is somewhat close to the end part of fur elise.
I also found this site: http://www.todotango.com.ar/english/biblioteca/partituras/partituras_por_autor.asp . I don't know if it is well known, but I find it very usefull, although I haven't heard of any one of those composers [well, maybe 1 or 2, Carlos Gardel being the first to cross the mind], and I thought I could share it with you.

Good luck finding this one but you may want to give the "morelais waltz" by Ernesto Cortazar a try.

It's a beautiful piece, not toop hard either.

Hello, Just a friendly suggestion, but perhaps you might also want to post this over at the Pianist Corner to gain further insights. In the mean time, here are a couple of sources that you may also want to look into. Please note that I'm just a beginner and have not played any of these pieces myself so I wouldn't know at which level of difficulties they would be.

I have both The Joy of Waltzes, Tangos and Polkas and Tangos for Piano. The Joy of Waltzes, Tangos and Polkas would probably be good for an early intermediate. The Tangos for Piano book is much harder.
