ARGENTINE TANGO DANCER
Hello! I am Veronika Kruta and I want to share my love for Argentine Tango with you!
I teach, perform, DJ, and organize special events that bring dancers together to engage in our favorite activity!
I caught the tango bug in 2005 and have been avidly dancing since; studying with world renowned instructors, investigating different styles, and exploring both the follower's and leader's roles. In 2008 I started hosting and DJing at milongas and festivals, and began teaching in 2010. I have worked extensively to build the community in Boston and Western Massachusetts and also been invited to teach, DJ, and organize events around the United States, Canada, Europe and Argentina. In 2014 I started dividing my time between living and studying in Buenos Aires and traveling to share my love of this dance.
My approach is informed by a life-long experience with dance and creative arts. Growing up in my family's art and performance gallery, I was introduced to various forms of expression at a young age. I continued to develop my artistic sensibility at the Pioneer Valley Performing Arts High School and hold a BFA in the Studio for Interrelated Media from Massachusetts College of Art and Design.
For me tango is not just a dance, it is an art form and a life-style that connects us to people from all around the world, across cultures and histories. My aim is to give others the tools not only to improve their dancing skill but also to understand the cultural components that give meaning to our movement and create those memorable moments that keep us all so intoxicated by tango's many charms!
From Veronika's laser-like commitment to mastery, and her social gifts of fanning community from a class, I have laughed my way into working harder than I ever thought I wanted to work! A perfect blend of technical and social discovery.
"Veronika will turn your interest in tango into a passion. Her enthusiasm is contagious. She is able to convey her extensive knowledge of tango clearly and intuitively to suit a students skill level."
Even after years of dancing, Veronika has helped me to hone in on technical areas for improvement that will take my dance to the next level. Veronika is both creative and engaging while keeping our private lessons extremely focused. I most typically leave my lessons feeling challenged and invigorated to dance more and to play with musical dynamics. She is an outstanding leader and follower which gives her a unique perspective and consistent concepts. She has the uncanny ability to adjust herself to each particular students learning style
— as only great teachers can!
