Tango Buenos Aires embodies a passion that year after year attracts more followers, not only in Argentina but also around the world, and strengthens the commitment to the historical heritage, the growth and the projection of tango in all its ways of expression.
The growth, projection and importance of tango worldwide has reached such magnitude that in December 2009 it was declared Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity, by decision of the Intergovernmental Committee of UNESCO.
From August, 14th to 28th Buenos Aires will be holding the Tango Buenos Aires Festival and Dance World Cup 2012. Emblematic figures and artists from the new generation of Tango share a programming of excellence and diversity.
Once the festival is over, the World Cup of Tango Dance starts with the participation of the best local, national and international dancers, competing in the categories of Salon Tango and Stage Tango.
