Countdown to the Salon Finals in Luna Park

Forty-two couples are warming up on stage in preparation for the last rounds of the tango de salon championships in Luna Park in downtown Buenos Aires that begin in one hour.  Couples from Argentina, Canada, Colombia, Chile, Italy, Japan, Mexico, Portugal, Russian Federation, Uruguay, Venezuela and the United States compete in the Campeonato Mundial de Baile de Tango.

Channel TN has been covering the festival and championship events all week.  I was hopeful to see a live broadcast at Luna Park, but this is a news channel, not an arts channel.

The new salon champions were interviewed on television.  Minister of Culture Lombardi announces they are going to Paris and Japan to perform.
