Bolero Tango performance by Hips On Fire.
In this video we show a Bolero Tango performed to live music at the Dance Complex Faculty Concert in 2009, in Boston, USA. This is one of the studios we used to teach, while living in the USA. The Bolero that we do, is originally, in its form, from Costa Rica, where Seemore was born and grew up. We added our own spice, taste and steps. Some people when they see us, they confuse it with tango, but tango has sharper and faster moves. Bolero is more soft and feels like floating. But it does have a tango flavor, since we do some type of ochos, and crosses that look similar, but always with the Bolero softness. In this video, though, as the music is more Tango like, we mix it and created this Bolero-Tango . The live music gives also a nice element for the performer, since the music is never played exactly the same, so it adds to the improvisational part. We hope you enjoy it.
