Jacob's Pillow Dance Festival
The stage is alive with passion as Artistic Director Natalia Hills, an original member of the Broadway and London hit Forever Tango, leads an ensemble of the world's best tango artists in Romper el Piso (Break the Floor). The expert performers of Tangueros del Sur showcase the intricate footwork, sensuality, and drama that comprise this classic Argentinean dance style, from its traditional beginnings to its modern ballroom interpretation.

Alastair Macaulay of The New York Times calls Natalia Hills "a completely appealing and stylish dancer: delightful at a brisk tempo, sensuous at any pace." Onstage master musicians scorch the air with the rhythms and melodies of eminent composers from Juan D'Arienzo to Astor Piazzolla on bandoneón, cello, guitar, piano, and percussion.
