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 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!

    I find it shocking that the champions cannot walk.

    I find the cluelessness of that comment shocking.

    If I am clueless, I must be very stupid – I have learned a thing or two for the 12 years I study tangp – I can very clearly see those two, so called champions, don’t know how to walk.

    No doubt you have a thing or two to teach Eduardo Arquimbau, Julio Duplaa, Julio Balmaceda, el Nene Masci, Pablo Inza, Ana Maria Schapira & Javier Rodríguez….

    Seriously, if it is not your preference, that’s fine, but there is no need for derogotary comments like these.

    If there is some aspect of their dance that you think deserve discussion, then please provide some arguments and be specific. Given the quality of your previous posts, I’d rather see you do it elsewhere. Any more of this trolling, and you will be put on moderation.

    PS: They are actually champions, like it or not.
