Jorge started to increase the number of classes each year, until he obtained a scholarship at age twelve and started to be part of the professional program of Madrid Dance Center, where danced many classical repertoires. In 2022 he attended The Royal Ballet School’s summer intensive, and he was offered a scholarship to Corella Academy’s Summer Intensive, under the direction of Carmen Corella.
