“C.U. Dance Productions and Ilede are pleased to present Maestro Tangin Fong, a highly acclaimed instructor, choreographer and musician from Cuba. Tangin is known for his unique dance style, where he effectively and seamlessly fuses many art forms, including modern, contemporary, folkloric and martial arts. His teaching style is fun yet structured and relaxed; he is known for his keen sense of awareness of his dancers’/students’ abilities, limitations and potential, and is second to none in his ability to bring out the best in people.
Tangin was born in Santiago de Cuba where he studied dance at the “Escuela Vocacional de Danza” in Santiago de Cuba; he moved to Havana where he graduated in 1992 as a professional dancer and instructor, specializing in modern and folkloric dances, from the National School of Contemporary and Folkloric Dance (“Escuela Nacional de Danza”). During his studies, Tangin participated in many provincial and national competitions as a choreographer where he received critical acclaim and recognition as a prominent talent in Cuba (at the “Concurso UNEAC”). Upon graduating, he joined the National Contemporary Dance Company (“Danza Contemporanea de Cuba”) as a main dancer and choreographer. From there, he founded his own dance company, Corpus Spiritu Alma, where he has taught a myriad of young talented dancers graduated from the National School of Dance and choreographed over a hundred dance pieces.
Tangin has travelled the world to perform and teach in countries such as Japan, Canada, France, USA, Venezuela, Jamaica and many others. He has trained hundreds of dancers both abroad and those who have come to Cuba attracted by his style and his way of relating contemporary and folkloric dances with martial arts. Tangin has also participated as a judge in many local and international dance festivals in Cuba and abroad. He is considered the founder of Video Dance in Cuba. He is presently residing in Toronto and exploring opportunities in the Canadian dance world.”
