Qualifying at Los Consagrados
Last night the qualifying round in one of the three milongas participating in the Campeonato InterMilonga was held at "our" milonga, Los Consagrados. (See previous post for more information on the contest.)
Five couples competed, all but one are Saturday night regulars. There was a flap about the winning couple, not habitues, because they are "professionals." So I don't know how it ended. But we were so thankful that we hadn't accepted the honor of being on the jury! Judging between our friends? I don't think so. And just sitting on the stage like that would have embarrassed me.
Judges were, left to right, Ivone, Horacio, Mimi.
Anyway, here are some more photos of the contestants for you.
