Jorge Casco Executive Director
Jorge Casco, a natural drummer since the age of four, began his journey as a street dancer in the city of Houston. Winning underground dance battles and making a name for himself in the underground b-boy circuit wasn’t enough. He saw Fly Dance Company perform at his school, and after a year as an understudy, Jorge became a principal dancer and toured with Fly Dance Company. At the time FLY was a national/international touring dance company that toured over a 10-year span. With FLY, Jorge performed in 110 school shows, and 65 dance concerts, reaching over 30,000 kids in a single season. He also has performed in many prestigious theaters and festivals including The Kennedy Center, Lincoln Center, Vail International Dance Festival, Just for Laughs, and Jacob’s Pillow to name a few. Jorge has particularly enjoyed traveling across the country performing and teaching workshops. With a natural comedic side, Jorge's humor adds fun to every FLY engagement. Another particular strength is his ability to relate to and interact with his students—adults and kids alike. Jorge is especially proud of performing for charities and benefits that he believes make a real difference. He has studied with Doug Elkins and participated in a joint workshop with Rennie Harris Pure Movement. Jorge works daily on his dream of growing FLY grow into a nationally recognized company with several chapters across the country.
