The organiser of the Sydney Tango Salon Festival, has approached us to host the qualifying round of the Australian Tango Dance Challenge (ATDC) in Perth *. The ATDC is a special ‘happening’ which will offer tango beginners and experienced students the encouragement to dedicate more of their time to working on their dance together and with their teachers.
The competition is open to all amateur tango dance couples. All participants must be at least 18 years of age.
Perth Contestants - what you must do prior to 16th March:
- Pre-register - Contestants must use the Registration Form on the ATDC website under “The Challenge” to register and pay. Specify Beginner/Open Category.
- Contestants must email their names to Champagne Tango Perth so that we know the number of couples to expect on the night.
- Contestants must familiarise themselves with the Criteria and Guidelines for the Challenge under the dropdown item “The Challenge”on the ATDC website.
- Contestants must turn up at CTP Milonga on 16th March by 9pm and mention their names to receive their number tags.
- Music is chosen by the Competition organisers.
- All couples will take to the floor together and dance to three (3) pieces of music.
- Judging - we are fortunate to have our professional performers for the evening, Jairo Sanchez Rivera and Amy Teuchert judging the competition.
