Living in Buenos Aires, where they worked in such tango shows, as the famous Café Tortoni, Añoranzas Tango, the legendary “Sabor a Tango”, "Tanguera", "Che Tango", and others. They perform at the most prestigious milongas (Salon Canning, Porteño y Bailarin, El Beso, Gricel, Sunderland, La Nacional, Confitería Ideal, La Baldosa, etc.) and also with different orchestras: Color Tango, Los Reyes del Tango, Sans Sousi, Bajofondo, Sexteto Milonguero, Romantica Milonguera and many others.

Jonatan and Julia regularly tour with seminars, master-classes, performances and festivals all over the world. Their unique method of teaching is the quintessence of their experience not only in tango, but also in Argentine folklore, modern and contemporary ballet, jazz, drama theatre, research in the field of conscious movement, dance therapy and their own developments. Their performing abilities are fascinating and diverse: they are equally inspiring, dancing elegant tango salon with very close embrace, or flamboyant stage tango shows, or Argentine folklore. In their performances they are distinguished by mastery, sensuality and professionalism.

J&J TEACHING METHOD

J&J teaching method is based on Body Awareness and Conscious Understanding of Movements.

Where is attention – there is energy, and where is energy – there is transformation and growth!

We would like to share our understanding and experience analyzing the logic of movements, allowing the personality of each one of us flourish in our dance. We believe that the beauty of Tango also lies in individual uniqueness, the diversity of approaches, points of view, teaching methods, as well as subjectivity of viewers' perception.
