BIO


Felipe Martinez has taught at major festivals in US and Canada, danced on cruises in South America & the Mediterranean; and 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.


As a DJ, Felipe has played music at most important festivals in the US like those in Portland, San Francisco, Baltimore, Denver, Washington DC, Atlanta, Houston, Fort Bragg, Austin, Houston as well as in many other communities like Providence, New York, Los Angeles, Montreal. He DJs regularly in the Bay Area at The Beat (practica) and El Valenciano (traditional milonga) and has also played music in Europe (Spain, Germany) and Buenos Aires, where he was invited to play music at El Beso and Villa Malcolm Club in several ocasions. He was also invited to DJ in Asia at the Seoul Tango Festival (2012, 2013, 2014, 2015), the Bali Tango Festival as well as in Taipei, Tainan and Tokyo. Felipe's musical selection is based on the classics that ensure a great atmosphere for dancing.
