Tango in the Park
AnaLinda has been social dancing- Hip Hop through Latin Dance - since she was ten. For 19 years, the Argentine Tango has completely captured her soul. She shares it enthusiastically with audiences and students throughout the Boston metro region. AnaLinda trained in the authentic social dance form in Buenos Aires and the United States. She has danced Tango on five continents. AnaLinda has performed and taught classes for the Hayden and Handel Society, at the Boston Conservatory, at the New England Conservatory of Music, and at almost a dozen University auditoriums in the region among other venues. For the last 15 years AnaLinda has been a faculty member at the Dance Complex in Cambridge, where she teaches group classes. She teaches groups and private lessons at SoWa in a beautiful art studio she shares with her teaching partner Paul Walcott. AnaLinda was a co-founder of MOVIMIENTO, a combined art gallery/dance space in Boston’s South End, the first Tango Venue in Boston proper.
AnaLinda’s Tango teaching is widely regarded for engaging her students in their journey toward expression through connection to their partner of the moment, and with their unique musicality to create the authentic Argentine Tango Triadic relationship; two dancers and the music. She excels at teaching those with no previous dance experience to become dancers.
In her performance work, AnaLinda prefers the immediacy and emotionality of improvisation to choreography.

Pamela and Steve Slavsky began dancing Argentine tango in 2000. They live in the Boston area where they have been teaching since 2006. They have been invited to teach in communities around New England and have taught at festivals as well as for a number of local universities. They have been teaching classes for the MIT Argentine Tango Club since 2007.
Pamela and Steve teach to promote tango’s unique charms as a social dance, emphasizing natural movement, connection, and musicality. In their classes they strive to keep students active and engaged in mind and body and promote learning through guidance as well as discovery. Their goal is to give students a foundation of skills rooted in traditional technique from which they can grow into versatile and curious social dancers. They continue to grow as dancers and teachers themselves through study, travel, and practice. Pamela also teaches the Alexander Technique and has taught social dance for over a decade. Steve is a tango DJ. They both enjoy long walks with their dog.
Hernán Brizuela has taught and performed at various festivals, milongas and studios in New York and Massachusetts and most recently in Australia, Canada, New Zealand, Ireland and Argentina. He was a principal dancer in the off-Broadway dance play Let's Speak Tango and choreographed and starred in the short film Gardenias. He performed in the past four productions led by Maestro Romulo Larrea, Tango First Century, Spotlight on Tango, TANGOS: from Gardel to Piazzolla and TANGO for lovers across the United-States, Canada and Europe.
Anita Flejter, originally fascinated by International Style Competitive Ballroom, abandoned it for Argentine Tango, her true love. She partners Hernan in Tango and in life. She is co-owner and cofounder of Ultimate Tango (Boston) and Adelante Studios (NYC).
Ultimate Tango is a dance school focused solely on teaching and promoting Argentine Tango. Our mission is to teach tango trough understanding fundamentals, principles and technique, rather then mindless repetition of steps and combination.
