Jorge holds a degree in Sport Sciences and studied contemporary dance at the Royal Conservatory of Madrid. After working as a professional dancer for different companies throughout Europe, he became a full-time lecturer at London Contemporary Dance School (The Place) for four years. 

 

Following this motto and based upon his synthesis of sport and dance movement patterns, Jorge founded SQx (somoSQuien eXperience) leading workshops internationally and coaching professional companies such as Akram Khan Company, DV8, Punchdrunk, Rambert, etc.

 

Over the last years Jorge has been commissioned by companies such as: Scottish Dance Theatre (UK), Beijing 9 Contemporary Dance Theatre (China), Acosta Danza (Cuba), among others. His latest creation for the company directed by Carlos Acosta has been awarded as the best dance piece presented in Cuba in 2017.

 

In 2014 Jorge co-founded min tala, a Pan-Arab dance company that uses contemporary dance as a peacekeeping, personal and professional development tool in areas of conflict in the middle East.  He also served as Artistic Director for Aerowaves Festival in Burgos in 2011.

For the last 20 years, Jorge has been working to crack the secret of how to replicate altered states of consciousness through very accessible but highly effective body routines. This has resulted in a cutting-edge methodology that has been published in the form of a doctoral thesis. In 2018 Jorge has been awarded a PhD by Goldsmiths, University of London.

Due to his outstanding work in dance research, he has been appointed as a Visiting Fellow at the University of Derby. Jorge also applies this research to music and film personalities.
