ABOUT ULTIMATE TANGO KIDS
Tango Dance Classes and lessons for kids and teens ages 6 - 18 in Greater Boston Area
To dance and to perform is a dream of many, many kids. Tango Classes for 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 Kids and Teens offer young people 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.
Ultimate Tango creator and owners, Anita Flejter and Hernan Brizuela created a unique, well-structured, progressive Argentine Tango program that proves itself extremely successful and popular. Introducing first connection, communication/partnership building, ability to lead/follow, musicality and structure of the dance, together with the steps from first encounter with tango, allow dancers progress reasonably within short amount of time, with great understanding of technique and strong basics for both improvisation and performance.
Throughout the year in addition to our kids & teens programs, we offer 5 levels of ongoing progressive Argentine Tango lessons for adults including specialty and master classes (Vals, Milonga, Performance and Choreography) and workshops with visiting maestros. Preparation for competitions for couples are also available through private lessons.
"Argentine Tango is not just a dance. It is the whole culture that will allow your child to not only learn how to partner dance to any music, but also how to walk correctly, stand correctly, built spatial awareness, use flexibility and elasticity of your muscles, move to the music, gain perfect posture and perfect manner, interact with older and younger colleagues of any gender, communicate your intention clearly and read the intentions of others clearly, work with the group as well as respect the rules and use common sense."
