Campeones mundiales de tango salon 2010: Maria Ines Bogado & Sebastian Jimenez
This is no longer news, of course, but I am finally catching up after being on vacations with no internet access (which was actually very nice!).
My congratulations to these beautiful dancers (that I wrote about before)!
The jury consisted of Eduardo Arquimbau, Julio Duplaa, Julio Balmaceda, el Nene Masci, Pablo Inza, Ana Maria Schapira y Javier Rodríguez, according to 2xtango.com. I appears that some find it shocking that someone so young won the championship (Sebastian is 18). Last year it was shocking that the winners were foreign. I have my doubts about the concept of a championship myself, but I see it mainly as a chance for young dancers to make a name for themselves. And once again the jury chose two very worthy winners! Congratulations!
