"The Ritmo Tango company consisted of outstanding artists...Ritmo's tangos were human and sensual; these were the dances of people who want their bodies to be close, want to share each other's breath and gaze into each other's eyes, of people who love and love to dance." Hal de Becker, Las Vegas New Times (11/95)


"BEST OF 1994": "THE YEAR OF THE TANGO...[Ritmo Tango is] an atmospheric survey of Argentine traditions featuring the drop-dead authority of Alberto Toledano and Loreen Arbus." Lewis Segal, Los Angeles Times (12/94)


"Tango Fest '97 was the perfect antidote to lingering winter and tax blues, a night of sensuality, humor and some very good dancing...at a sold-out Town Hall...Several approaches to the tango were represented...the smiling, luscious dance-hall romancing of Alberto and Loreen..." Jennifer Dunning, New York Times (4/97)


"TANGO FEST '97": The Comic relief was supplied by Alberto Toledano who, with his mustache and expressive face, danced a Chaplinesque solo that combined the mime and pathos associated with Chaplin's wistful Little Tramp character and Jackie Gleason's Poor Soul. Dancing with his luscious partner, Loreen Arbus, their eccentric and flirtatious milonga also had delicious comic moments. Their prowess as seasoned performers added a diverse flavor to the show. Larry Stevens, Dance and the Arts (7-8/97)


"TANGO MASTERS MESMERIZE, EROTICIZE AT LUNA PARK...Loreen Arbus and Alberto Toledano, the nation's No.1 practitioners of the art of the tango, tear up the stage...Arbus and Toledano...are a revelation...[they] perform muscular kicks that would make a Tae Kwon Do master envious." Frank Sanello, West Hollywood Weekly (3/95)


"Loreen Arbus and Alberto Toledano leave the audience breathless." Hollywood Reporter (4/95)


The passion and drama of ARGENTINE TANGO is danced by Loreen Arbus and Alberto Toledano. Their nationally critically acclaimed delivery of Tango, the fiery Argentinean dance with its intricate dance steps and elegance of movement moves their audiences to standing ovations. They are the highlight of Festival Argentino/94 Arte-Musica-Cine sponsored by the Consul General of The Argentine Republic in Los Angeles. Hispanic Reporter, (4/94)


EL TANGO...LA PASION ANDANTE. "La sincronizacion de sus pasos y sus cuerpos amalgamados por esta musica de encantador embrujo crearon un epico poema de amor en el escenario...Se necesita genio, gracia y sabor para recrear la belleza de movimiento que presenciamos esa noche." Alexander Asch, Novedades (4/94)


"Guest artists [with the AVAZ International Dance Theatre] Loreen Arbus and Alberto Toledano gave new meaning to the tango with their expert footwork. Kicking between each other's legs at a fierce pace and their hips swiveling voraciously, they danced in perfect synchronization." Jody Leader, The Daily News (11/92)


"Ritmo Tango includes outstanding dance sequences...the show was ultimately about the relationship between a man and a woman, with all the nuances and emotional variations involved. They have exquisitely captured the intense feeling of this dance just as it is performed in Buenos Aires." Latin Beat Magazine (9/94)


"When It Comes To The Tango, 'Ritmo Tango' Is The Real Deal." Las Vegas Sun (10/95)


"PRIMO TANGO...A current West Hollywood production at the Luna Park nightclub brings together the world famous dance team of Loreen Arbus and Alberto Toledano. The lithe, lean and limber Toledano and the alluring, exotic, spiked-heeled Arbus glide and grind and kick as they bring to life the magic of the dance and music of Tango." David DePino, Compass Magazine (5/95)


"Alberto Toledano and Loreen Arbus are a well matched pair who know the intricate tango moves and the serious attitudes that underlie them." Dale Reynolds, Frontiers (3/95)


"BEST OF 1994": Finally, at Nosotros in December, Toledano and Arbus created for Dance Theater of East L.A. the year's most daring tango: a man-to-man psychosexual struggle for dominance fought out by Bogar Martinez and Frank Guevara. "The Year of the Tango and 'Don Q'", Lewis Segal, Los Angeles Times CALENDAR (12/94)


"Much more successful was 'Reto" (Spanish for 'Challenge') a male/male tango danced by Frank [Guevara] and Bogar Martinez [commissioned by the modern dance company, Dance Theater of East L.A., from choreographers Alberto Toledano and Loreen Arbus]. The Polo tuxedo-clad duo successfully communicated the smoldering sensitivity of tango, which had the added delight of being danced by two men..." Kevin Spicer, Alternatives (1/95)


Featuring all-new choreography and live orchestral accompaniment, the unmistakable zing of Argentine tango comes to the Fountain Theatre in RITMO TANGOTM. Led by two masters of the genre, Alberto Toledano and Loreen Arbus, it's just the thing for a sultry evening. "It Takes Two", BUZZ (6-7/96)


"RITMO TANGO'S POLISHED PASSION ACCENTS LOS ANGELES THEATRE PRODUCTIONS...Educated dance audiences could instantly appreciate the nuances and the complexities of the elaborate choreography." Cate Caplin, Los Angeles Theatres (5/95)


"RITMO TANGO MAKES NO FALSE MOVES AT THE FOUNTAIN...Alberto Toledano and Loreen Arbus display their...dismayingly intricate and unpredictable kick-and-turn choreography...high velocity moves, the fusion of snobbish and streetwise attitude, the irresistibly disreputable glamour of tango...Their 'Ritmo Tango' revue...showcases their terrific skill and versatility." Lewis Segal, Los Angeles Times (3/94)
