A tango dancer, choreographer, teacher, competition judge and director
of “Unidos pore el Tango” ballet academy, Jorge is becoming a favourite
repeat visitor to Vancouver Island. Students will remember Jorge as an
encouraging and highly observant teacher, focused on a comfortable
embrace, steady balance and clean technique, with a wicked sense of
humour. He is influenced by many remarkable teachers, including
Natacha Poberaj, Javier Rodriguez, Sonia Peralta, and Carlos Copello.
He has partnered with Monica Parra for two tours in 2016 and 2017.

This will be Jorge’s second visit to partner with Tracey Peever, currently teaching at Alive Tango Victoria. Tracey is a former yoga teacher from Montreal, and offers tango with attention to breath, energy, connection and postural refinement. Her most influential teachers include Marika Landry, Mauro Peralta, Tomas Howlin, Ney Melo, Virginia Pandolfi & Noelia Hurtado.
