| About Luis Pereyra was born to a humble working class family. At the early age of five he danced in folk groups. At the age of eleven he made his first professional appearance as a member of the ballet Argentino directed by Mario Machaco and Norma Ré. He made his first appearance on stage at the legendary Caño 14, where the famous bandoneonist Aníbal Troilo appeared at the same time. Later Luis Pereyra became member of the Ballett Salta, directed by Marina and Hugo Jiménez.|
Luis Pereyra studied choreography under the direction of Maestro Carusso in Teatro Colon, the opera house of Buenos Aires, and at Escuela Nacional de Danzas. He took studies with renowned maestros such as Santiago Ayala „El Chúcaro“, Hugo Jiménez, Mario Machaco, Héctor Zaraspe, Irene Acosta, Ana Marini, Wasil Tupin und Mercedes Serrano.
His professional education comprises Modern Dance, classical ballet, jazz dance, folklore, tap dance and he studied music.
Luis Pereyra´s choreographic work is influenced mainly by his Argentinian origin. His works are always closely related to popular and folkloric dances and show a pure choice of elements. His oeuvre is based on his principle: „Unity. What belongs together, should not be separated.“ He regards the culture of Argentine as a unity, and Tango Argentino as a integral part of Argentinian folklore. From his very start he has followed this principle.
Luis Pereyras work: It is his aim to unite all of Argentine´s dances on one stage: Tango, Chacarera, Milonga, Milonga Sureña, Zamba, Gato and Malambo, the Gaucho dance, just to mention a few of them, being on the same level, in connection with each other and creating a picture of the country Argentine as a whole, as one unity. Luis Pereyra considers music as genesis of all dance. For this reason he chooses carefully strong and expressive compositions of original argentinian music and cares about authentic instruments, as Bandoneon, Cajas, Bombo, and others.
