IMPORTANT annoucement for Official Categories 2021:

In case that BA Festivals, in charge of the organization of TANGO BUENOS AIRES FESTIVAL AND DANCE WORLD CUP takes the decision not to hold the World Cup in presence during 2021 due to the pandemic situation, ATUSA’s Official Champions of Tango Pista and Stage Tango will maintain their qualification to compete at the TANGO BUENOS AIRES FESTIVAL AND DANCE WORLD CUP 2022 of whenever the sanitary situation allows the event to be carried out. The organization of ATUSA, official PRELIMINARY of TANGO BUENOS AIRES FESTIVAL AND DANCE WORLD CUP, will guarantee to the 2021 official winning couples the total coverage of cost of travel and stay of both dancing partners, including tickets from the city of residence of the winning couple to the City of Buenos Aires (airfares and travel included), accommodation and meal expenses for the days of the Preliminary’s Gala, semifinals and finals of the next edition of the Tango World Cup.


Clarifications for the Official categories 2021:

  1. Each Official category at ATUSA, – the OFFICIAL PRELIMINARY OF TANGO BUENOS AIRES FESTIVAL AND DANCE WORLD CUP 2021 – will have one champion couple who will automatically qualify to compete at the SEMIFINAL rounds of the TANGO BUENOS AIRES FESTIVAL AND DANCE WORLD CUP 2021, representing the PRELIMINARY, – and not the city of origin or residence of the dancers, without exception.
  2. If the champion couple in any of the official categories renounces to participate in TANGO BUENOS AIRES FESTIVAL AND DANCE WORLD CUP 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 2021.
  3. 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 prize consisting of full coverage of costs of travel and stay.
