Student Feedback

Appreciative words from students wishing to share their experience:

Please know .. In your heart .. That who you are and what you teach is incredibly special!!! You don't teach Tango for the masses to go woo woo.. That's a side effect of just how beautifully you move.. What you teach your students is _expression_ !! DV

Of all the teachers and all the classes I have ever taken, you are the best! AN

I just wanted to take a moment to tell you how much I appreciate and enjoy your classes. I felt a connection to the dance from the first lesson… Through growing with each lesson, I have gained a new confidence, not only in myself, but have grown to appreciate, respect and love the dance. AMZ

I loved your class.  I think you are one of the best teachers I have had.  VP 

That was a great class yesterday, especially the intermediate one.  Thanks for inviting [us] to join.  I know we have a long way to go still but it is now beginning to feel like the dance I loved at first sight :).  NM 

Tango really is another way of communicating on many different levels.  SL 

That was such an awesome class Saturday, I had to let you know, it was amazing to have a chance to dance with the intermediate students, felt like some key pieces that I really needed were met connecting, flowing, listening and feeling the partner; much more able to integrate your teachings when dancing with the experienced partners!!  JN 

Your strength is your ability to describe in detail what is happening/should happen, how it feels etc.  EM 

I think you are an excellent teacher and consider myself fortunate to be working with you.  SP

The difference between your classes and others is apparent and striking - for those who think about what they see and how they learn.  IA

I enjoy so much your teaching style and very much the joking - it creates a relaxed atmosphere which I appreciate greatly!!  I love that!  JN

Special thanks for the encouragement, I need it!  EP

You are the only instructor in the South Bay offering intensive classes, and, as the word gets out, I expect that the dancers that want to hone their technique will continue to sign up for them.  EM

Students dancing the tango at a workshop taught by Jorge Torres“What a wonderful experience my lesson was. It was a combination of gentle life philosophy, relaxation, massage, mind and spirit balance and, oh yes, tango.  I arrived from work, uptight and stressed, and I arrived back at work in the most peaceful state I have been in for a very long time. What a trip!”  - Su M.

"Jorge hones in on the details so that you can see exactly where you need to be and where your weight should be…"     - Sharon W.

"I never knew four steps could be such a challenge!" - Wes Y.

"Every class is “Simple but Difficult!”!!"     - Albert B.

"To learn so much in two hours that not only reinforced the training I have already received but introduced more of the reasons that strengthen my desire to be an Argentine tango dancer…" - Jean S.

"Sue, thank you so much for your unending energy to make it possible for so many to work with Jorge.  I completely enjoyed him as always and when he is around will do some more in the future.  I loved my private class with him and will do this again in a heart beat.  The show was fantastic, the music completely over the top and what shape they all are in!" - Lizbeth H.
