Murat is gifted with an insightful, thorough and analytical understanding of the dance.  He started his journey with tango in Istanbul, 1998. Widely known for his strong lead and musicality, Murat's background in fine arts and music provides him with the perfect blend of senses for the movement of bodies through time and space.  

In his philosophy of teaching Murat strives to offer students valuable tools in order to enable them to take control of their own personal growth.  He is warm, attentive, entertaining and accessible to students. The style of his teaching is holistic in approach and clear in method.  He successfully combines technical and sensory exercises with fundamental concepts that lead to all the challenging possibilities of improvisation and expression.  As demonstrated in his own dance, he focuses on the origin of movement coming from an agreement in the embrace and has created a unique brand all his own characterized by musicality, playfulness, a balanced partnership and an awareness of social etiquette.

Murat has influenced large numbers of dancers with his unique perspective of dance and instruction. He followed his parents path to art school. He established himself as an artist before he arrived in the US to complete his Masters Degree in Painting. His art works were sold to collections in Europe and in the States. 


 Murat regularly visits Holland, France, Germany and Italy.
