Julio learned his first tango steps from his father, the legendery Miguel Balmaceda, and for many years he accompanied and assisted him in tango practices. After his father’s death in 1991, Julio took over the classes at the most prestigious tango schools in Bs. As.: “Canning”, “Grisel”, “El Parakultural”, “Almagro, and “La galleria del tango”. Nowadays Julio has the honor of being considered one of the youngest “milongueros” in Buenos Aires. 
He was the first young teacher who kept on researching tango and
its training without losing the connection with the tango essence of the old milongueros and salon dancers. He is not only a born tango dancer but also intuitive. He is well known worldwide as well as in Argentina due to his naturalness, quality and musicality that make his dance and his walk a synonym of Tango. In 1993 together with Omar Viola he opened the Parakultural. In 1995 he was invited to participate in the Film “Evita” by Alan Parker.
