El Chino is a New Generation dancer, performer, teacher, who had studied with legendary teachers in Buenos Aires. His style has a very beautiful connection and traditions with flair of musicality, nuances, and feelings.
He benefited both from being able to study with such old school masters as the Dinzels, Nito and Elba, the Rivarolas, Teresa Fernández (Todaro system) and Victor Arne; and from being part of the tango revolution that started with Gustavo Naveira and came to be known as Tango Nuevo.
What tango is today, in 2014, is a mix of these two: the old and the new; the old understood better thru the new; the new reaching back to the old for tradition; the old reaching forward to the new for inspiration; the old and the new intertwined and made stronger through these interactions and for mutual respect. The best tango professionals of today understand, dance and teach tango based on this dichotomy.

Katherine Gorsuch's hybrid expression of movement is derived from the many dance influences in her life. She received her formal dance training at Ballet Hispanico, where she was a member of the Jr. Ensemble. At 18, she began dancing tango in New York City. She initially partnered with Robin Thomas and has most recently worked and performed with Felipe Martinez, Adam Hoopengardner, and Oliver Kolker. Katherine has taught across the US, and in Europe. Dancing in Europe, Buenos Aires, and across the United States has contributed to Katherine's inspirational musicality and connection. She brings a youthful energy and sweet madness to the dance floor.
