TANGO WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP IS COMING
Since this Friday the 12th until August 30th, the 9th Edition of the Dance Festival and World Championship “Tango Buenos Aires” will be taking place. The great River Plate rhythm gathers dancers from all around the world who come to show their abilities on the Porteño dance floors. The cradle of tango receives professionals, fans and tango lovers who would never miss this party.
The event will award the best dancers in the categories “Tango Salón”, which privileges the social dance as a Porteño cultural practice; and “Tango Scenario”, which goal is to enrich the dance from a choreographic conception linked to the pure spectacle. During the World Championship the audience will also enjoy tango dancing on the streets, exhibitions, free classes and dance shows.
Tango Buenos Aires sums up a passion which grows year after year not only in Argentina but also in different places of the world. The event is a strong compromise with our historic patrimony, the growth and projection of tango in its many expressions. The importance of tango in the world has grown to the point where our rhythm was declared Cultural Heritage by the UNESCO in 2009.
There will also be a large tango dance in the open air, a great moment to take pictures of the dancers or to try to perform a tango step. For those willing to learn, there will be available teachers ready to show you the basic steps. The news on the event can be found everyday on the official site of Tango Buenos Tango Buenos Aires.
