NeoDance is the creation of choreographer, dancer, and Holocaust survivor Alfred Friedman and critically acclaimed Latin Grammy winner Nestor Torres.
NeoDance tells the story about the relationship between talent and passion, overcoming life’s greatest challenges, seizing opportunities and taking them to the next level. It is also a story about creating an impressive body of original work by following the path of dreams fanned by a true love of music and dance.
Alfred Friedman better known in dancing circles as Mr. Dance, has been an acclaimed dancer, choreographer and dance instructor for over 50 years. His notoriety, which is rooted in his versatility and multi-dimensional approach as a dancer, inspired him to fuse Tango and Nuevo Tango with different dance and music genres, to create NeoDance, an alchemy of steps and moves with music artistically crafted to bring out creativity from within the dancer.
Nestor Torres is a Grammy-nominated and Latin Grammy-winning artist who has released 18 critically acclaimed albums with his innovative blend of jazz, classical, and Latin music, punctuated by lyrical improvisation and rhythmic beats.
