Young, but driven, Jorge began dancing in the spring of his senior year at Sharyland High School. He was welcomed into Melba's School of Dance's family where he was introduced to ballet, tap, jazz, hip hop, and folklorico.
At first, Jorge had a hard time keeping up with his classmates. Yet, he had this fire to keep trying and moving forward. He practiced and used every moment to make up for all the lost time he had yet to discover his love for dance. Every hallway of his high school was a chance to tap his feet away, every grocery isle a possibility to six count prep into sloppy doubles, and every long sidewalk as an opportunity to tombé pas de bourrée glissade saute chat for his life.
