Xavier Vanier

Xavier has an extensive background in music and martial arts that spans nearly two decades. This experience has granted him a facility both in his understanding of the music as well as in his movements. He began his tango studies with the widely respected Marika Landry, where his ease with the dance became immediately apparent. He began teaching at Tango Fabrika in Montreal and and soon became well known throughout North America.

Xavier continues to be passionate about teaching, dancing, and learning. Having spent several months in Buenos Aires studying with Gaston and Moira, he was even more inspired and became a sought after instructor, and respected DJ, at events around the country.

Xavier and Jesse have moved their very popular weekly Xangria Practica to Mondays at You Should Be Dancing...! studios, NYC as of February 2016! We are so happy to have them home again!
