Tango Dance Performance Programs for kids and teens ages 6 - 17 in Medford, MA
Argentine Tango Performance Programs for kids focus on stage quality Argentine Tango.
To dance and to perform is a dream of many, many kids. Now the dream can come true with Ultimate Tango brand new Ultimate Tango Kids division. Starting September 2019 we are introducing brand new Kids Performance Programs dedicated solely to kids and teens ages 6-17.
Argentine Tango is a couple dance based on partnership. Therefore is not just improvement of one’s own skills that matters, but also ability to clearly communicate with one’s dance partner. To perform as part of a group, alongside other couples requires even more involvement. We aim for perfect synchronicity, alignment with music, expression and illustration of feelings, all while executing often very complicated figures, steps and sequences. Group Performance experience requires trust and commitment to your partner and to all your peers, which eventually to often life long friendships.
During 75 60-minutes sessions scheduled twice a week on Wednesdays & Fridays between September and May students will master 4 choreographies with progressively increasing level of difficulty and perform them during 2 recitals.
All students enrolled in the program will learn 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. More advanced elements will be added in second part of the training that might include variations with sacadas, boloes, ganchos, calecitas and more based on the talent of the group. Strengthening exercises, pivots and turns, posture correcting exercises and necessary technique will be introduced and implemented as needed.
$200 OFF FIRST YEAR REGISTRATION
Tango for Kids provides young people of Medford, MA with tango lessons that not only teach them to tango, but provide them with social, physical, and mental skills they can benefit from throughout their lives.
Ultimate Tango creator and owners, Anita Flejter and Hernan Brizuela created a unique, well-structured, progressive 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 performance.
We will teach your child how to behave under pressure on stage, how to be visible from the furthest end of the room and shine without screaming for attention, how to project one’s presence so people see and pay attention, how to express oneself so the audience pauses in awe.
Most importantly your child will become part of a larger project of spreading dance and beauty of Argentine Tango culture. The movement and the energy redirected in right direction allows the beauty of the movement to become a second nature.
Trial month / Audition
Since young dancers often need some adjustment time, each school year starts with one month trial. This is the time for Instructors to observe individual student’s ability and devotion and for students/parents to determine if tango dance classes are really what they are looking for. If after one month parents will observe that classes and training requirement cause too much distress the child can be withdrawn and the annual fee minus enrollment fee will be fully refunded.
Ultimate Tango Kids reserves the right to suggest a withdrawal at any time during the first month - in which case the full cost will be fully refunded.
Since the age in many cases is just a number we also reserve the right to place student in the lower or higher age group based on Instructors’ observations. This is only to make the learning process most effective. All groups will be trained to achieve their best. Your tuition will remain at the ‘age’ level.
