In his

Students'

words:

"Franky is an encouraging and skilled teacher. He has a facility for breaking things down into manageable pieces, and finding a way around every potential roadblock. Through his belief that I could advance my dancing to the next level, I realized that I could in fact do it!"

IN HIS OWN WORDS:

"Bueno, when I first started with the MetaMovements program I didn't know how to dance salsa on2, and Anara trained me a lot so I could learn. I also had some challenges when partner dancing because I didn't understand how to effectively show the follower what I was trying to lead them in. When I joined the MM team, I learned how to lead with more confidence and clarity, and I feel this brought my dancing to a new level. ...

I joined MetaMovements fairly recently, and it's been a pleasure for me to be able to share my knowledge with clients as well as learn about them-- I really love it."
