About

Image
Francisca was born in Santiago, Chile. She migrated to Paris, France, to study Contemporary Dance, and graduated in 1997. Inmediately after, she moved to NYC to pursue a dance career. NY became her home for 13 years.

She studied Klein Technique with Susan Klein and Barbara Mahler (1997 - 2008) and this enriched her dancing tremendously. She performed for independant companies through out the years, and since 2005 has been choreographing her own works.

She has been teaching Gyrotonic exercise since 2002, and Pilates since 2015. 

She is a certified Zero Balancer since 2015, helping people enhance their lives, improve their quality of life and empower their own lives.

In 2008 Francisca left NY to look for new horizons in Mexico, where she continued dancing, choreographing, and teaching. In 2012, Gyrotonic exercise brought her to Singapore, teaching at The Moving Body for almost 8 years. Today she has her own studio, and is thrilled to continue to help people move better, connect in their bodies, and find centeredness and wholeness.
