Coming to Sacramento for the first time!  Norberto 'El Pulpo' Esbrez
Sacramento: El Pulpo's US Tour Grand Finale!
Norberto's style is characterized by creativity and improvisation. Since the beginning of his career he showed his capacity to innovate, creating a very personal image. He is considered   "REY DE LOS GANCHO" (king of ganchos). Known as El Pulpo or 'octopus' for his fluid and intricate leg movements, he developed the concept of suspension as a tool to generate the control and fluidity that is part of his dance style. This vision of dance is hypnotic when he performs, always improvising. His dance and technique is based on the communication and understanding with his partner, and characterized by continuous, round, soft movements.
