Javier started dancing tango in 1996 in Buenos Aires, where he took many lessons with many different teachers. In 1998 he met Gustavo Naveira and became one of his few students at that time. Together with a profound and solid technical knowledge of improvisation, very soon he understood the importance of conscious practice. Developing this part of the dance has become one of his greater basis. This allowed him to discover his own natural approach to tango that led him to find his own personal style. Therefor, making him advance much faster as a dancer and be much more efficient as a teacher. As a result, tango schools and festivals around the planet have asked for his help during the last 15 years.

I have been dancing tango for several years and it has become a part of my life ever since. I hope that you will be fascinated by tango just like me and that you will become part of our tango family.
After experienced the Tangonexion intensive seminars in Buenos Aires 2 times in the last 2 years, Tango has become part of my identity. It is absolute, full and honest communication through my body. It is giving me freedom that I want to share and wish everyone to experience.
I have been in love with tango for several years already . In 2020 I took both intensive seminars in Buenos Aires, and this made a big change in my approach to dance and teach tango. I'm looking forward to share my love for tango with anyone.
It’s our goal to share with you all our dance experience to help you find your own. To set solid bases on which to built your dance indefinitely. It is a lot… but it’s just the beginning!!!
Tangonexion is the name we’ve given to a specific technique of movement. It provides a comprehensive structure of vocabulary to clearly identify, combine and create exercises to assure your own progress.
This technique allows anyone to deeply understand and put together the theory and practice of Argentine Tango from its very basics. And therefor allows the dancer to keep a strong, conscious and solid improvement over time.
It’s has been developed after more than 20 years of intense research in Buenos Aires, interacting with thousands of people (teachers, colleagues and students); and it’s been proven to work all over the planet, with students of all ages and levels. Our approach absorbs the knowledge from the dancers in real life, so it keeps improving and refining itself continuously.
