Timeline Schedule Link

Judging criteria

1) Each couple should follow the same criteria as the Tango Pista category.

2) Since each dancer is evaluated individually, the judges will pay additional attention to the self-expression and personality on the dance floor.

No one will be allowed to register two or more times in the same category. It is possible to register in different ones, with the same or a different partner. If both members of the couple are natives or residents of different cities, they will have to choose the city of residence or birth of either one, as couples are allowed to represent only one city. In order to ensure the impartiality and professional integrity of the jury members, contestants will not be able to participate in seminars, workshops and/or classes taught by any member of the jury, as long as they are in the competition. During the competition The evaluation process will be the same as the official Tango Pista category. Once formed, the couple must not separate while the music is playing. For the position to be considered correct, the body of one of the members of the couple must be contained all the time by the arm of the other. It is understood that in certain figures, this may be flexible, but not throughout the duration of the dance. All movements must be made within the space allowed by the couple’s embrace. Within these parameters, the couple may perform any commonly used figures of “social” tango, including barridas (sweeps), sacadas al piso (drawn to the floor), enrosques (twists), etc. Jumps, figures that involve losing the contact of both feet with the floor and all other choreographic possibilities typical of Tango Stage are completely forbidden. As is typical in a dancehall, couples must constantly move counterclockwise and may not stay in the same part of the choreographic space as this would obstruct the circulation on the dance floor. The jury and scores In all categories, the jury will be composed of a minimum of 4 (four) members, who understand and accept the rules of the competition, and commit to their compliance. The jury will determine the score of the participating couples. The jury will be appointed in accordance with the Office of Festivals, the Organizer of the Preliminary and the Association of Teachers, Dancers and Choreographers of Argentine Tango (AMBCTA). The final score for each performance will result from the accumulation of points, given by each member of the jury on a scale of 1 to 10, in accordance with the criteria. The Jury will take into account the musicality and walking style as fundamental to the score, as well, as the compliance with the rules. Outfits will not be taken into consideration during the judging process. The jury will choose one winner among the leaders and the followers (they may not necessarily be from one couple). Also, the jury (with the agreement of the Organizer) may grant awards and special mentions to the second and third place, and will be entitled to award other mentions if deemed appropriate. The Organizer will be entitled to eliminate from the competition those participants that: a) Do not comply with the rules. b) Commit any moral offense or improper act that tarnishes the image of the Championship or may cause displeasure in the public. This first year only, an incredible and amazing prices promotion! Take advantage of this by doing your Registration before May 27th 2018. We thank our sponsors for making this possible, supporting our passion and trusting in us! Be a part of the history of Argentine tango in Canada and make an act of presence, courage, as the lyrics of the argentine tango say: cuando quiera y donde quiera, porque el tango es …!

TEAM CHOREOGRAPHY

Group Choreography

This additional open category is created to promote and celebrate the team work. Its winners won’t go to the Tango Buenos Aires Festival & World Cup in Buenos Aires but will be given the titles of the Canadian champions in this category. Unrestricted entry, amateurs and professionals. To be eligible to register, dancers must:

  • be 18 years or older by the start date of the local competition

The evaluation process will be the same as the official Tango Stage category. The team should included a minimum of 6 persons per team. The choreography should be performed on a tango song minimum of 3 minutes and maximum of 5, including the time of entering and exiting the stage. The team should have an official choreographer, one team per choreographer. If the team is represented by an official tango school, there is no limit on the quantity of teams to present by one school. During the competition In this category the participants will be able to express their personal view of Argentine tango. This means that couples will be allowed to perform movements, figures and applications that are not directly related to the traditional tango dance. But the choreography must include traditional elements of tango: figure eights, spins, long walks, voleos, hooks, and the “milonguero embrace.” Couples will be able to break the embrace and use techniques from other dance disciplines, as long as they are justified and enrich the performance of the dancer. Aerial tricks and movements from other dance disciplines must not be excessive. This means that they must not exceed a third of the overall performance. The couples must include floor movement sequences throughout the whole stage floor. If a technical problem should occur, the Jury will evaluate the repetition of the choreography at the end of the assigned performing time slot. In case of having a problem with the choreography, the couples will decide whether to continue dancing or not, and the Jury will evaluate the manner and grace with which they solve the inconvenience; but the couples will not be allowed to repeat the performance. The team must be available during the days of competition in Montreal on July 27-29, 2018, in the presence of the official committee of Judges accredited by TANGO BA Buenos Aires under the Supervision of BA Referee (Veedor).
