I am not only a dancer but I also sing those tangos that very few sing, folk tangos of the 20s that Carlos Gardel sang. I grabbed a CD with Carlos Juares, one of the best guitars of Buenos Aires and I sing at the mythical Bar del Chino in Pompeya quartier from Buenos AiresI

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 a sensual, elegant, sometimes funny, sometimes meditative game!


​I'm Julio Mendez from Buenos Aires. I am Tanguero from always.
I danced as a child at family parties with my mother and I grew up in an environment of Tango and racehorses thanks to my father.

l started to dance Tango when there were very few young people who danced Tango in Buenos Aires, in the mid 90s. 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 Arquinbao, Tete and Maria!
Every week I saw Roberto Rufino sing in a Stud where he ate a barbecue Asado with my father's friends! 
had a Tango school and organized Milongas one of the most popular
Milongas in the history of tango in Buenos Aires, it was called La Calesita
