More about Murat...

With almost twenty years of experience, Murat is gifted dancer with an insightful, thorough and analytical understanding of tango.   

In his philosophy of teaching, Murat strives to offer students valuable tools to enable them to take control of their own personal growth.  He is warm, attentive, entertaining and accessible to students. His holistic approach successfully combines teaching technical and sensory exercises with fundamental concepts that allows for all possibilities of tango improvisation and expression. Murat’s approach to tango is characterised by his strong lead and musicality, playfulness, and an awareness and respect of social etiquette.

Murat has influenced large numbers of dancers with his unique perspective of dance and instruction. Following in his parents footsteps, he established himself as an artist before moving to the US from Istanbul to complete his Masters Degree in Painting. His art works were sold to collections in Europe and in the States.
