Do You want to learn Argentine Tango, with an Argentine Tanguero?, why?
Tango Argentino are not just steps and dance figures, it's not a sport! 
Tango is a free spirit, a feeling that is danced, a authentic complex, rich music, in nuances and emotions that are expressed in its dance.
Tango has born in Buenos Aires and Montevideo at the beginning of the 20th century, and it was the fusion of Indian, Afro, Mediterranean and Northern European cultures.
Tango is the only pleasure to melt in a single unit two people with music.
is a sensual, elegant, sometimes funny, sometimes meditative game! Tango transports you to an intact world where daily problems and pressures can not get you.
Where the age, social, ideology religions das not mater. There is only the chemistry and the pleasure of dancing, with another person.
Tango is a game of seduction and creativity.
Im Julio Mendez from Buenos Aires, l start to dance Tango when there were very few young people who danced Tango in Buenos Aires, 26 years ago. 
Tango at that time was seen as a thing of the past that only the old people danced it. Many people, family friends, told me that I was crazy. They did not understand so much passion for something out of fashion. 
I had the privilege of knowing and learning with those old dancers who created this unique dance.
Mingo and Ester Pugliese, Toto Faraldo, Raul Bravo, Pepito Avellaneda, Juan Carlos Copes, Gloria and Eduardo Arguinbao, Tete and Maria!
I dance as a child at family parties with my mother. I saw dancing I grew up in an environment of Tango and racehorses thanks to my father.
Every week I saw Roberto Rufino sing in a Stud where he ate a barbecue Asado with my father's friends!
I am not only a dancer but I also sing Tango. those tangos that very few sing, folk tangos of the 20s that Carlos Gardel sang. Record a CD with Carlos Juares one of the best guitars of Buenos Aires.
