Argentine Tango World Cup Scoring Systems

A new scoring system that offers transparency and impartiality

The Placement System

Single Dances & Mano a Mano

The placement system is scoring based on providing rankings or placements. The judges observe a couple's over all dancing, places them in a position from 1st, 2nd, 3rd etc, and the averaged out placements provide a final placement. Perfect for the Argentine Tango World Cup's short program, it's quick and precise.

Element System

All Championships

New to the dance world entirely, the ATWC is excited to offer this year an element system. Each judge will only judge a specific element, with up to 10 points available, and the total will be compiled into one entire score. Additionally this allows competitors between rounds, to have full transparency understanding what elements may or may not need attention to proceed to the next round!!!

Elements and Judges:

Judge 1: Connection and Embrace 

Judge 2: Technique and Composition

Judge 3: Musicality and Interpretation

Judge 4: Energy and Flow

Judge 5: Overall expression and presentation
