About Eric Jørissen
If Argentine Tango sounds like double Dutch to you, try Eric Jorissen. With a degree in dance pedagogy and 40 years of dancing of which 33 years teaching, and 27 years tango (updated info 24.06.2014), the Dutchman is the perfect person to get anybody onto the dance floor in no time.
Among the world’s tango dancers, Eric stands out with an approach to tango that emphasizes both authenticity and uniqueness. He is the ambassador of a tango that is truly Argentinian, and yet much more – a tango that speaks to dancers all over the world with its fresh, cheerful and warm approach, emphasizing the connection within the couple.
Many tango aficionados contend that only Buenos Aires, the city in whose underbelly tango was born in the late 19th century, has genuine Argentine tango. Yet with his dance centre El Corte in Nijmegen, Eric Jorissen has created what is probably the world’s most famous tango mecca outside of Argentina, a dancer’s paradise where only sleep comes in short supply amid long days and nights of tango.
