Shows philosophy

What is Tango Escenario or Tango Show? 
Many people question whether tango show is true tango because it is choreographed rather than improvised. Some feel that the emotion is simulated rather than felt as a personal experience. This can cause some to dismiss this aspect of tango culture.

But tango show is an art form that is as much a part of tango culture as the dancing in the milongas of Buenos Aires. All of the essential movements of tango salon are also included tango show but they are executed in a way that is bigger, more dramatic and visual so they can be appreciated from a distance in a theatre, so the audience can also experience the passion of tango.  

In any dance art form, performance is a creative way of exploring artistic possibilities and allowing dancers to express their physical and artistic capabilities. It also allows audiences who may or may not dance themselves to enjoy the exquisite aesthetic beauty and passion of tango for entertainment. Tango show fulfils these goals.

Tango show presents huge challenges for the dancer. The task of mastering the use of energy in your body and controlling your movements so lightening fast and dramatic movements look effortless is a huge discipline that sharpens a dancer's skills. Once control of the body can be achieved, a dancer can apply these skills across tango genres.

The stage is where Julio began his career and it is this experience of understanding the use of energy and control of the body which provides a solid foundation for all his teaching. 

Julio is an accomplished tango choreographer and has wide experience in managing and producing tango shows. He is passionate about using this art form to explore and push the creative boundaries of what is possible in tango.

In addition to other styles of tango, Julio teaches tango show or escenario technique and he has coached many dancers to performance level.
