Jorge Torres is a world-renowned tango dancer and choreographer. He is the Dance Captain of Forever Tango since 1995, a renowned tango show that has performed throughout the world. He excels in both show and social dancing, giving great emphasis to balance and axis control. Two interviews are very illuminating regarding the his skillsets and philosophies:

* The Milonguero’s room
* Bay Area Tango Association: Interview with Jorge Torres

Workshops will be held on Saturday and Sunday. Emphasis throughout will be on axis, balance, and core, although he will touch on the many elements that go into a tango dance. Each day will have three classes, with emphasis on technical aspects of finding one’s axis, start with a workshop on balance, posture, and core, which are crucial for all styles. Part 2 will not depend on part 1! Each of the remaining workshops will touch on one of the pillars of movements: barridas, sacadas, volcadas and Sacadas, again through balance excercises. Each workshop will cost $30 if not registered in advance. Registered attendees pay $25 per workshop. For members of ATST in good standing when the workshop begins pay $20/workshop.
