Hillary Ross (BA Dance/English, Wesleyan University) originally trained and worked as a modern dance performer, choreographer and teacher. She has danced professionally with notable groups including Partners: Martynuk/McAdams Dance, Laura Knott Dance Company and Glendance; has had her choreography commissioned by First Night Boston; and has taught dance at the JP Firehouse Arts Center, MIT, Wellesley College, for the Bank of America Celebrity Series and at the Boston Tango Festival. She is a member of the dance faculty at Boston University. She was also on the dance faculty of the Cambridge Center for Adult Education for 16 years and taught tango at Springstep for many years before they sadly closed.
Hillary traveled to Buenos Aires four times for intensive study and immersion in tango culture. Her classes emphasize proper body mechanics along with music and partner connection while building an Argentine tango vocabulary. The structure of the dance is examined so that students learn how to make the dance their own, and what is learned is placed in the context of moving around the social dance floor. Hillary’s students comment on her keen eye for detail, and find her energetic, fun, patient and giving.
Here's what some of her students have to say:
And from The Boston Globe:
"…red high-heeled Hillary Ross…torched the floor."
