About - A tango story
Julian Castro, the creator of El Encuentro Tango and Tango på Skärva, was born in Buenos Aires, Argentina, and has studied and devoted to tango during the past 10 years. His tango is a combination of traditional and elegant tango coupled with modern and solid technique. His teaching style is focused on allowing the students to develop their tango style through simple and useful principles. He believes that tango cannot be learned: it can only be discovered.
He has studied and developed with world famous dancers and tango legends like Maximiliano Cristiani and Karina Colmeiro (tango salon world champion 2013), Gabriel Missé, Guille Barrionuevo and Mariela Sametband, Maria Eugenia Brandulo (world tango championship finalist 2016), Noelia Barsi, Javier Rodriguez, Sebastian Jimenez (world champion 2010), Max Van de Voorde (world champion 2011), Juliàn Sanchez, Melina Mouriño among others.
