Tango Buenos Aires embodies a passion that year after year attracts more followers, not only in Argentina but also around the world, and strengthens the commitment to the historical heritage, the growth and the projection of tango in all its ways of expression.
The City Dance Championship, which this year celebrates its 13th anniversary, is held every year in the framework of Tango Buenos Aires. Every night, the competition visits a different milonga on the Buenos Aires traditional tango circuit, in search for the best dancers in the City.
At the City Dance Championship, one can already start feeling the beat of the World Cup, since the winners of this competition will be in charge of representing the City at Tango Buenos Aires Festival and World Cup. This unique, world-renowned tango event, which already has a set date in the month of August, draws thousands of dancers and visitors from all over the world, who come to the City to participate and enjoy the different activities offered.
The growth, projection and importance of Tango beyond Argentine borders has reached such magnitude that in December 2009 it was declared Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity, by decision of the Intergovernmental Committee of UNESCO.
More and more activities and events linked to Tango enrich the cultural calendar of Buenos Aires and enhance this asset that represents the most unique and authentic of our artistic and cultural manifestations, showing the hallmarks of porteño culture – the combination of tradition, renewal and diversity of a type of music that proudly identifies the City.
