PRIZES

Each official category at ATUSA, – the OFFICIAL PRELIMINARY OF TANGO BUENOS AIRES FESTIVAL AND DANCE WORLD CUP 2019 – will have one champion couple who will automatically qualify to compete directly at the SEMIFINAL rounds of the TANGO BUENOS AIRES FESTIVAL AND DANCE WORLD CUP 2019, representing the PRELIMINARY, – and not the city of origin or residence of the dancers, without exception.

If the champion couple in any of the official categories renounces to participate in TANGO BUENOS AIRES FESTIVAL AND DANCE WORLD CUP 2019 from the semifinal instances, it will automatically also renounce to the prizes (see below), leaving both members of the couple unable to participate in TANGO BUENOS AIRES FESTIVAL & DANCE WORLD CUP 2019.
In those cases where the competition in one or both categories has lost its official character for not having the minimum participating couples, the Organization of the PRELIMINARY will be exempted from the obligation to grant the winning couple the prizes. In this case, the Organization may choose to offer alternative prizes for the non-official competition.
