I would agree that it has to be both.  I can't imagine judges giving top marks for technical performance while disregarding showmanship.

But happens a lot - technical perfection is hard to mark down.  Indeed, I think the current world pro standard placings are more technical than artistic.

So we're back to the eternity dissonance between art and sport.  *sigh*

its a dissonance of our own creation - we chose to hit the two notes at the same time...

Oh my gosh!  Not sure what's more of a show, with this tango, the dancing or the rowdy ... ahem ... enthusiastic audience!   Wink

*stating the obvious, or at least evident*  Looks like showmanship can be in the eye of the beholder.   Take a look at this video of Victor Fung in the WDC tango final, by way of comparison.  This guy is very aware of the judges.  It's obvious.  But he doesn't seem to be playing to the audience.  However, take a  look at his facial expressions, head styling, etc.  He is really playing up the tango persona.   (Of course, the music is very different, as well.  That may make a difference.)

So what constitutes showmanship, exactly?
