“I find it an extraordinary experience. We enjoy the competition. We just dance like we used to do and enjoyed the process. The contest is fantastic, and we learned a lot from the top professional dancers.”
He and Mi came from China’s top metropolitan of Shanghai, and this was the first time that they took part in the tournament in the so-called Capital of Tango.

“For me, I feel that we still have a lot to improve, compared with the Argentine dancers, but many tango teachers told us that the tango starts from the heart. So, we just danced, and enjoyed the music and the hugs between us. That is it.”
An unforgettable memory was made for the couple, after the competition with other dancers from Argentina, Colombia, Britain, Russia, Brazil, Italy, the United States, South Korea and Japan.
