Gabriela Fernanda Torres, a tango dancer who uses a wheelchair and her partner Pablo Rafael Pereyra have danced in the qualifying batch of the Stage Tango Category in the Tango World Championship in Buenos Aires, on Thursday, in what is believed to be the first for the competition. The dancers described this as an opportunity to bring about social change in how people look at wheelchair users in the field of dance. The Tango Buenos Aires Festival and Dance World Cup 2017 is taking place between August 10 and 23 at the Usina del Arte, a multidisciplinary cultural centre located in the La Boca area of the capital. Buenos Aires is the home of Tango, with the dance form originating there in the late 18th century.
