I'm by no means knowledgeable enough on this subject, but I think of salsa as faster/fun/flirty-sexy, while I think of tango as "I'm-tragically-in-love-but-want-to-kill-you" sexy. That's aside from technical differences, of course.
I totally, totally recommend ballroom dancing, just not for your original purpose of flexibility/balance. Ballroom/latin/swing is definitely worth it (especially if that girl's going too!)

Oh yeah? Maybe I will!
Actually, yeah, I might now. You all just reminded me.
