Javier Rodriguez, tango dancer and teacher, is one of the most recognized figures of the Argentine tango and an indisputable expert in Tango Salon style. For the past 20 years Javier has been a part of the most famous tango festivals in Argentina, Europe and Asia, where he never stopped dazzling the participants with his art of dance and pedagogy.
Javier Rodriguez has begun dancing tango when he was 18. Together with his first professional partner, Geraldine Rojas, they have quickly become one of the most sought after tango couples in the world. They have toured the globe, performing in the best theaters and working in most prestigious tango festivals.
The next stage of Javier’s professional tango career was his partnership with another prominent dancer, Andrea Misse, with whom Javier worked for 9 years until Andrea's tragic death in 2012. Together with Andrea Javier toured throughout Europe, Asia, Brazil, Uruguay, and Chile and they continued being one of the most popular couples worldwide.
Javier's teaching focuses on technique, posture, and elegance, emphasizing those many little important details that can polish and
perfect your dance.
Tango Element is proud to welcome Javier back to our annual event. This year Javier will perform with no less distinguished dancer, Moira Castellano, which will be their world premier performing together.
