The Dominican Republic, an island of sweet rhythms and white sand beaches is also the birthplace of Franklin Diaz.
Falling in love with movement and sound, he taught himself to dance. He is the product of a musical family composed of instrumentalists and vocalists, nurtured by music of his culture.
Franklin’s unique style blends a wide range of Latin folkloric dances from flamenco, to NYC style mambo and Afro Cuban, with the precise and refined techniques of ballet, Horton, and Dunham. What you are left with is essentially the future of Latin dance, and a flattering culmination of these styles, executed seamlessly in this innovative new approach to Latin dance!
He has traveled the world, nationally and internationally sharing the stage with renowned artists such as Celia Cruz, Tito Puentes and Fania All Stars.
About Franklin's classes:
Loosen up your body and connect with the clave rhythm in your basic step!
Franklin focuses on the essentials, that any salsa dancer needs to take to embody an authentic Latin feel and musicality.
Students will learn different combinations and learn how to incorporate the timing and movement into more complicated shines. This class really pushes the students to dance dynamically expressing a wide range of movement qualities
Franklin’s partner work class gives the students an opportunity to connect their body movement and musicality with another person.
For those who have experience in Salsa On2 turn patterns, Franklin’s partner work, like his dancing takes the dancer out of the confines of typical on 2 style partnering while still retaining all the flare and wow factor that draws people in. Students are pushed to dance more themselves within the patterns, creating beautiful flowing sequences that look impressive and feel amazing to do!
