Om Virginia och Julio
Julio and Virginia started to dance together in 2015. As a result of their different backgrounds, they have created a unique style recognized for their interpretation of the music and their dynamic. They combine elegance with technique and elasticity with strength to create the perfect ingredients for beautiful, passionate and talented tango.
Julio learned his first tango steps from his father, the legendery Miguel Balmaceda. For many years he accompanied and assisted his father in tango practices and after his death in 1991, Julio took over the classes and he has since then continously been teaching at the most prestigious tango schools in Buenos Aires. Between 1996 and 2015 he was performing and teaching together with Corina de la Rosa at all the major tango events in the world. He is considered as one of the most important tango teachers due to his unique style and pedagogy and was early creating a unique style by adding new tango trends to the traditional elegance of the 'tango salón'. Julio combines fluency, subtlety, energy and dynamics, together with a unique interpretation of the music. The naturalness, quality and musicality make his dance and his walk a synonym of tango.
