The UK Tango Championships was held in Newcastle Upon Tyne in February 2009. I never made it up to Newcastle, a bit too far from London.
Update – the videos are no longer available – I doubt that I’ll find much footage of the championships online but if anyone has some, please do forward it.
The winners of the Salon Tango are Timothy Hospedales & Anja Stellinger whom I see dancing in London often and are quite good.
I’m not sure who the winners of the Stage Tango are but it would be nice to see who their competition was. It would also be nice to know what the scoring criteria was and what was so special about their performance that they deserve the title UK Stage Tango Champions.
I never think stage tango is as good as improvised tango. After a while, all stage tango seems to look the same (except these two, they do look a little different to the rest of the youtube clips out there).
