Competition De Danser – Badhoevedorp The Netherlands

Adults, Start, C, B, A, HK, ST and LA. Sen Start, B, A and HK 1 to 5 ST and LA. Juveniles and PD ST and LA – Argentine Tango, unique category

Geraldina Rojas & Ezequiel Paludi have partnered with the Nederlandse Algemene Dansport Bond (NADB) to set up ‘competitions’ in Argentine Tango. 

Tango is of course, mainly known for its cultural and social character, but setting up competitions will contribute to an improvement of the level and further development of the dance. It gives the motivation to master the techniques better and to deepen the creative aspect of the dance further. All of this will have an effect on the fun and feelings you will experience with the dance. 

The competition consists

Of Tango, Milonga and Vals with predetermined choreography plus improvisation. The mechanics of Dancesport includes footwork, use of feet, legs, hips, frame and all interrelated body mechanics that make up the techniques of dance. Overall posture should remain upright at all times. Dancers should ensure a close distance between them is kept but should avoid leaning on each other.
