(AP) Argentine couples retained their dominance of the world's top tango dancing competition as the annual festival drew to a close.


Guido Palacios and Florencia Castilla, a couple in real life as well as on the dance floor, won the Stage Tango finals Tuesday with a score of 8.89 from a seven-member jury of dancers and choreographers.


Twenty couples from around the world competed in the Stage finals marking the end of the two-week festival.


But no one impressed the panel as much as the hometown couples who danced before a large crown in Buenos Aires' Luna Park stadium.


Argentine couples also came out on top in the Salon competition the night before.


The top winners received $7,000 dollars in cash and tickets to Paris, where they're expected to perform.
