Armando Orzuza was born in "La Boca", a suburb of Buenos Aires, known as the birth place of the Tango. His first professional contact with the Tango was at the age of fourteen as a sound technician for a "Tangueria" (Tango Performing House) in Buenos Aires. This enriching experience surrounded him with the foremost dancers, singers and orchestras of the Tango world. Ten years later, he began to study the Tango himself.
Armando learned to dance from the original "Milongueros" and began his professional career in 1990. Together with his then partner, Daniela Arcuri, Armando performed in the Broadway show Tango Passional in New York and Miami, as well as in the promotion of the album "Tango" by Julio Iglesias. As dance consultants and choreographers they worked in Alan Parkerâs movie "Evita" and in the 2004 Madonnas Re-invention touring show.
Armando has performed and taught the tango at Tango Festivals, public and private events, cultural organizations, embassies, consulates, schools, universities, and theaters, throughout Europe, Japan, South America and the United States. Armando also appeared as principal dancer in the movie Assassination Tango directed by Robert Duvall.
Together with Nuria Martinez, his current partner, Armando has developed a unique style of dancing and teaching which represent a contemporary style of dancing the social argentine tango.
