The 18th edition of the world championship tango is held from 16 - 26 September 2021. This festival is organised by the government, and the first edition was held in 2003. The championship consist of two categories: Tango Salón and Tango Escenario.
Tango Escenario is characterized by its free and acrobatic choreographic style, which includes movements such as jumping and breaking the embrace. Stage tango takes place with couples who dance alone and choose the music. This style seeks choreographic freedom and the expression of the multiple variations with which tango dance is presented in the world, but without losing identity: It is allowed to break the embrace but the regulation also warns that it must have a "reason for being and (to be carried out) for the benefit of the presentation"; The jumps and use of resources from other dances are allowed, but without exceeding one third of the presentation time; The choreography must include "the classic figures of tango: ochos, giros, caminatas largas, voleos, ganchos y el «abrazo milonguero»".
