El Turco is recognized for his creative and expressive style and his bold and sensitive interpretations of both traditional and modern tango music.
Though he is considered a virtuoso of "Tango Nuevo", in his dancing Burak is strictly based on classic Tango vocabulary. His syncopa, or rhythm, is flawless, and his nontraditional use of the established cocepts of lead, or 'marcado' prompts curiosity and inspiration for other dancers.
He is the creator of the Tango Joven Festival in Chicago, the Chicago Tango Week 2008-2009, and the Miami Beach Tango Marathon 2010. He is also the co-founder of the ARTango Center in Chicago.
Currently Burak is a resident artist at Montreal's premiere Tango School "Tango Fabrika." He frequently tours US and Canada for teaching, DJing and dancing.
