Hi Manya34,

I got you two sources of the definition of "adagio team". One is a CD
reference and the other is an online source:

adagio /dd/ adv., a., & n. L17. [It., f. ad agio at ease.] Mus.
A adv. & adj. In slow time, leisurely. L17.
B n. Pl. -os. 1
A musical piece or movement in slow time. M18.
2 A dance or ballet movement in slow time. M18.

(Excerpted from Oxford Talking Dictionary, The Learning Company, Inc.,

Pronunciation: (u-d'jO, -zhE-O"; It.-d'j), [key] 
—adv., adj., n., pl. -gios. 

—adv. a leisurely manner; slowly. 


1. adagio movement or piece. 
2. Dance. 
a. a sequence of well-controlled, graceful movements performed as a
display of skill.
b. a duet by a man and a woman or mixed trio emphasizing difficult
technical feats.
c. (esp. in ballet) a love-duet sequence in a pas de deux.

Based from the definitions, an adagio team is a ballet love duet that
performs difficult but graceful movements on stage.

Here's a nice example of an adagio team:

Marks of Passion

Interestingly, you can find many sites with the phrase "adagio team"
that doesn't relate to ballet/dancing. Here are some examples:

Adagio Team - Cycling Team

Adagio Team - Sailing Team
