RULES:The TANGO SALON competition categories are intended to be danced IMPROVISED just as you would in a traditional milonga setting with an extra emphasis on elegance, connection, technique, musicality, and style. Social categories are danced each day in groups of 7-12 couples at a time, to 3 different songs (per group, per category). Competitors are encouraged to dance as “naturally” as they can in respect to the traditional tango style. Judges will give extra attention to each couple’s posture, embrace, connection, elegance, musicality, walking, turns, and style.
CLOTHING – competitors are encouraged to dress elegantly. Suits for leaders and dresses or skirt/top combos for followers.
EMBRACE – competitors must stay in embrace (both arms connected) while dancing. Both close and open embrace is allowed.
LINE OF DANCE – couples must move counter-clockwise around the dance floor while dancing and avoid staying in place, dancing in the center, or bumping into other couples.
MOVEMENTS – most traditional tango movements (ochos, sacadas, barridas, paradas, pasadas, enrosques, boleos, adornos, etc) are allowed with exception to moves considered unsocial/non-traditional (high boleos above the knees, high kicks, leg wraps, etc) or stage (jumps, lifts, release of the hands, etc). Neatly-tucked high boleos being used as embellishments are allowed.
RESPECT – competitors must be respectful to judges, event organizers, and other participants.
JUDGES: YULIANA BASMAJYAN- SEBASTIAN ACHAVAL- ROXANA SUAREZ
