To dance and to perform is a dream of many, many. Tango Classes for Adults, Kids and Teens at Ultimate Tango are designed for students interested in exploring partner dancing, including improvisation and performance aspects, in the Greater Boston area.
So what’s the difference between Tango, which is a partner dance, and dances traditionally perceived as solo dances such us ballet, tap, jazz, hip hop etc? Argentine Tango is a couple dance based on partnership. Therefore it is not just improvement of one’s own skills that matters, but also ability to clearly communicate with one’s dance partner. To improvise tango or to perform as part of a group, alongside other couples requires even more involvement. We aim for perfect synchronicity with partner, alignment with music, expression and illustration of feelings, all while executing often very complicated figures, steps and sequences.
Partnering other dancer requires trust and commitment often leading to life long friendships. Tango dance classes for Adults, Kids and Teens offer residents of Medford, MA and Greater Boston area with the experience that not only teach them to tango, but provide them with social, physical, and mental skills they can benefit from throughout their lives.
All students enrolled in the program are learning fundamental structure of Argentine Tango, its most recognized steps, combinations and elements including cruzada, baldoza, ocho adelante, ocho atras, parade, sandwich and giros in various variations. Strengthening exercises, pivots and turns, posture correcting exercises and necessary technique are introduced and implemented as needed.
