Maestro Jorge Firpo has been visiting Europe on regular base since 1997 to give workshops and performances, a.o. a number of times in the Netherlands with his former dance partner Aurora Lubiz. Every time he left behind enthusiastic students, like the past eleven years with us in Amsterdam.
Jorge dances tango from his childhood. In 1983 he choose for a professional career as tango dancer and teacher. His most important teachers were Antonio Todaro and Pepito Avellaneda, with whom he worked for many years.
He is a renowned maestro in the world of tango of Argentina, and runs his own school in Buenos Aires.
Firpo is known for his pure approach of the tango and its culture.
He teaches for many years with a lot of enthusiasm and to all levels: from beginners to professionals.
Firpo is renowned for his plesant and clear way of teaching. He masters all types of styles: tango de salón, tango fantasía, milonga, tango wals, canyengue, orillera; and is renowned for his musical interpretation of the various styles in the tango.
He also takes care of choreographies.
Regularly he is on tour in Europe, North- and South America and before in Japan, where he gives many workshops.
From 1996 onwards Firpo is, together with Aurora, the most important maestro of Arjan and Marianne.
