The world’s top tango dancers will put on a spectacular show throughout Japan in Tango Dance Premium from Jan. 20-Mar. 31. With no fewer than 55 performances at 45 venues, the five winning couples of the annual Tango Dance World Championship will indulge audiences across the country with a rare opportunity to experience first-class tango dancing live.
Held every year in Buenos Aires since 2003, the Tango Dance World Championship pays homage to the colorful, alluring dance form in its birthplace, the most recent taking place in August 2007 and hosted by the Buenos Aires Ministry of Culture. Growing more international every year, the championships now welcome several hundred couples from four continents — including Japanese pairs, who are consistently the largest contingent from a non-Latin American country.
