Choreographer

We have been working with Favian since Feb. 2013 for my daughter's Quince (15th birthday). We still have 4-5 remaining practices before the big day 6-15-13. Favian has been nothing but absolutely wonderful! Our dance consist of samba, bachata, salsa, hip hop and waltz. His instruction and patiences with the kids is exactly what I was looking for. The kids are having fun and enjoying themselves. He has been really understanding when it comes to having to reschedule practices. We have had to do this 2-3 times. My daughter plays softball as most of her court plays softball or baseball. But I know that I can always call him a week in advance to see when we can get a practice rescheduled or moved. Favian has been very flexible when it comes to scheduling. I honestly would have to say that the surprise dance has been the most frustrating part in preparing for the Quince. But it's not because of Favian, it's trying to coordinate 12 kids schedules together that has been. We have really enjoyed working with Favian and he is such a nice person in general. I am truly thankful for him and we could not have accomplished this without him. I would recommend him and will use him again for my youngest daughters quince if he is available.
(I wanted to share my experience so far but could not put my actual event day, so I had to use today's date)

More than expected

Favian has been great, we have only had two practices and the kids already learned one dance and are half way through the next one. The dances are different and not something you see at every Quince. I can't wait to see them perform it! He relates so well with the kids and they had so much fun they can't wait till the next practice.

Influences & Inspiration

My influences come from the people and events around me. I create dance to tell stories, I create dance for people to enjoy there time and to have fun. I am influenced by my technical background in dance and also by my love to perform and assist others in gaining the same opportunity. I love to help people understand dance through the passion which I present and speak about dance. Influence is one of the key elements of any successful artist, it is a seed in which you can cultivate to blossom if you take the time.
