Marcelo "El Chino" Gutierrez & Katherine Gorsuch

Marcelo “El Chino” Gutierrez (call him Marcelo) is one of that lucky generation of tango professionals that came of age in the 2000’s when tango was in the excited throes of self-renewal. He benefited both from 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. El Chino studied classical dance and choreography at IUNA, and started studying tango in 1998. For the past 10 years he has worked on perfecting the well-known teaching system he is so respected for; a system focusing on stability, groundedness, comfort, natural body movement, core leading, organic leading and following..etc. Just a few classes with him will drastically improve your dancing and change your entire outlook of tango. His classes are entertaining and inspiring. Experimentation, challenge and discovery are the ingredients that go result in tangible improvements in your dance. A teacher of teachers, El Chino regularly teaches his system to professional tango dancers around the world, and he is also well known for his ongoing Cobra (teaching women to lead in tango) classes in Buenos Aires. “Marcelo Gutierrez has been one of our most influential teachers over the years"- Adam and Ciko.

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.
