Meet Felipe

Felipe Martinez has taught at major festivals in US and Canada, danced on cruises in South America & the Mediterranean, and has toured & taught in many major cities throughout the U.S., Asia, and Europe. He regularly spends time in Buenos Aires to feed his passion and knowledge of tango. Originally from Madrid, Felipe holds a degree in Education and has been dancing tango since 1997. He has been based in the Bay Area for the past 15 years, where he is a regular teacher, host, and DJ at several venues — including The Beat, El Valenciano, Genesis and the Stanford Tango Club. Celebrated for his elegant approach to tango and incisive teaching, Felipe is one of the most widely traveled and in demand dancers of his generation. Thorough and precise in the classroom, Felipe is also one of the organizers of the San Francisco Tango Marathon, an international event held every year in November.

Felipe DJs regularly in the Bay Area at The Beat (practica) and El Valenciano (traditional milonga). Felipe has DJ’d at Festivals & local Milongas in Portland, San Francisco, Baltimore, Denver, Washington DC, Atlanta, Houston, Fort Bragg, Austin, Houston, Providence, New York, Los Angeles, Montreal.  Felipe has DJ’d worldwide, including Buenos Aires, Spain, Germany, Seoul Tango Festival (2012, 2013, 2014, 2015), the Bali Tango Festival and the Taipei Tango Festival, as well as in Tainan and Tokyo. Felipe's musical selection is based on the classics that ensure a great atmosphere for dancing.
