About Jorge Torres

He was recently selected as one of the 12 best Male Dancers in the world by the New York Times. Jorge began his dance training at the age of 3 when as fate would have it Mr. Norberto Guichenduc, the highly acclaimed ballet and tango dancer from Europe arrived to Jorge’s hometown on a mission. Mr. Norberto Guichenduc’s goal, remarkably surprising to the residents of this small rural town, was to give of his time to teach the town’s children to dance, affording them an opportunity they otherwise would not have had. Under the tutelage of Mr. Norberto Guichenduc, Jorge’s training began first within the different styles of Argentine Folkdances typical of his country of origin. Soon thereafter, Mr. Norberto Guichenduc, recognizing Jorge’s natural talent became his personal trainer, mentor and friend for life effecting years of classical training in ballet, tango, and performance.

Before graduating from his studies to be a dance teacher himself, Jorge had begun his professional career at the internationally renowned Teatro Colon of Buenos Aires. Jorge Torres has studied the art of Argentine Tango from dancers and teachers of great stature as Norberto Guichenduc, Rodolfo Dinzel, Pepito Avellaneda, and Antonio Todaro. He has performed in noted tango houses and theatres in Argentina along with renowned tango orchestras as Sexteto Mayor in Santiago’s Municipal Theatre-Chile. His extensive list of shows includes “Imagenes”, “Tango y Anoranzas”, “La Pesada del Tango”, “Tangokinesis”, “Tanguisimo 91”, ”Tango Tango”, “Viva Tango”, “Tango Passion”, “Buenos Aires Tango Show”, “Tango Seduccion”, and the Broadway and international hit “Forever Tango ” for which he has been the Dance Captain since May 1995. He has coordinated shows such as “World Tango Week” in Tokyo and Directed the Show “Tango Legend” attracting record breaking results each time.

He was a member of the jury for the First World Championship of Argentinean Tango in Buenos Aires in 2003 and the USA Tango Championships in 2007, 2008 and 2009. Jorge never one to rest on his laurels continually searches for ways to expand his understanding of the core elements of the body and its power to move. By studying Reiki Jorge learned to understand and control his own energy. He has applied this as a tool to teach his students how to relax ultimately allowing them the simple pleasure of enjoying their dancing. As well, Jorge, a classically trained dancer was taught to always contain and protect his equilibrium by focusing on a specific part of his body. His desire to expand his horizons and explore other ways to achieve the same goal brought him to study the martial art of Aikido. To this day Aikido gives him an entirely different perspective on how the mind behaves and how the human body reacts within its own axis.

Jorge Torres is the consummate professional who has achieved the highest standards and accolades. Nonetheless his personal mantra; “in order to succeed you must always believe you wear a white belt”. Since early 1995 Jorge has been part of the original cast of Broadway hit show “Forever Tango ” and was nominated in 1998 for Tony award for best choreography. The show ran for over a year at the Marquis Theater, New York, U.S.A. In that same year “Forever Tango” was also nominated for best choreography by the Outer Critics Circle and nominated for four awards including that of best choreography by the Drama Desk. Jorge is currently performing with “Forever Tango”, serving as the Dance Captain to its company of dancers since May, 1997. He has recorded ‘A Evaristo Carriego’ in the video “Dancing in the moment” with Karen Kain for the Canadian Broadcasting Company directed by Luis Bravo. As Dance captain of “Forever Tango ”, Creative Director of The Shimmy Club, Inc. , Juror of the tango championships, Artistic Director for the American Tango Institute , he is constantly touring across the USA, Asia and Europe, teaching and inspiring others.

About Daniela Arcuri

Daniela Arcuri grew up in the heart of Buenos Aires, where she absorbed the English, French, Spanish and mostly Italian influences that define the cosmopolitan “porteño” culture of this port city. At age thirteen Daniela began training in ballet, modern dance, music, acting, jazz, Argentinian folk dancing, and gymnastics, and began teaching, choreographing, and performing tango for modern dance at the age of fifteen. She graduated from the prestigious Escuela National de Danzas and Instituto Nacional de Gimnasia in Buenos Aires, and she competed on the Argentinian National Rhythmic Gymnastics Team.

Daniela began her professional tango career in her early twenties in a production with legendary tango dancers Juan Carlos Copes, Maria Nieves, and Pepito Avellaneda. She then began to teach and choreograph tango in Eduardo Arquimbau’s Tango Academy in Buenos Aires. Her style developed from her training in ballet and contemporary dance, with the influence and instruction of some of the great milongueros of Club Almagro and Villa Urquiza of Buenos Aires, masters such as Gerardo Portalea, Petaca, and Juan Bruno. In the late 1980s she continued training with the best tango masters of that time, such as Rodolfo Dinzel, Eduardo Arquimbau, Antonio Todaro, and Pepito Avellaneda, and spent many years dancing and observing in the milongas of Buenos Aires.

Daniela won world-wide acclaim with her then partner, Armando Orzuza, together acknowledged as one of the top professional tango couples, regularly appearing on the Solo Tango TV Channel in Buenos Aires, owning their own tango school in Buenos Aires, and teaching and performing in more than 200 cities in Europe such as Lausanne, Torino, Bologna, Rome, Geneva, Paris, Toulouse, Berlin, Hamburg, Reykjavik, Copenhagen, Munich, Madrid, and Valencia, among others and in the United States, including prestigious festivals in Boston, New York, Tampa, New Orleans, Reno, and Miami.

They performed with such important artists as Julio Iglesias on the Oprah Winfry and Cristina Show, Madonna, choreographing “Die Another Day” for her tour Re-Invention in 2004, Libertad Lamarque in the SevSec Show, TV Sabado Gigante Show with Don Francisco. They also performed with the famous tango singer Maria Grana at the Hollywood Bowl, Alba Solis, Beba Vidart in San Telmo, Juan Carlos Copes and Maria Nieves with a Rose for Mr. Tango in Toronto, Pepito Avellaneda, Fernando Soler, Sexteto Mayor Orchestra on Broadway, Sexteto Tango Orchestra, La Orquesta de Ernesto Franco, and The Hollywood Bowl Symphony Orchestra.

Daniela has danced, choreographed, and performed in many tango productions including Tango Passion on Broadway, and Sebastian Tango&emdash;a queer tango show, her latest choreography and performing project, which was presented at the Complejo Cultural Borges in Buenos Aires in 2008. Daniela teaches seminars in the United States and is dedicated to her Tango School in Austin, Texas where she lives with her two children Maximo & Luciano Orzuza.
