Javier Rodriguez (哈維爾.洛迪里基斯)  is one of the most influential Argentine Tango teachers in the world, highly sought after in international festivals and workshops. He is no stranger to the Asian tango scene, having made his first visit here in 2003 and is one of the key maestros in both the Taipei Tango Festival and Seoul Tango Festival. Together with his late partner, the divine Andrea Misse, he has played a huge role in cultivating the traditional tango environment as we see today in many Asian cities, introducing the cabeceo and the codigos of the milongas, and nurturing some of the best dancers in the region. He is known for his elegant and musical dancing, as well as his ability to make students feel tango in a more profound way. Many have emerged from his classes feeling inspired and changed, both technically and mentally.

Javier has always been a dear friend, mentor and master. It is a pleasure to bring him to Hong Kong every year and to introduce him to those who do not know him yet. We look forward to a great week of pure tango in November!
