Competitions are a wonderful opportunity to showcase skills and bring a community together. We are absolutely excited to host four categories of Tango competitions throughout the weekend: Individual Improvisation, Couples Improvisation, Team Choreography, and Couples Choreography. Competitions will be judged by all festival instructors and winners will receive amazing prizes. Competition registration is free and is available with the online festival registration or during the festival.
