As a student of the famous José Brahemcha, called “el Turco José”, his dance is characterized by the subtleties of the Urquiza style. Inspired by styles of other art forms, he developed his own character for his dance. In his Berliner Dance school he taught generations of social and professional dancers. His career so far has been captured in the award-winning documentary “Con el Tango”, which has been shown at international festivals since 2021. Since over 10 years he brings inclusive Tango on stage, especially with dancers on wheelchair, for instance together with RambaZamba Theater in the frame of the Gala Evening “Parieté”. His research in this field has been subsided various times be the German Government.
