Francisco Vazquez

The interview with Francisco Vazquez (33 years) as well took place in "La Macumba" on Salsafestival in Hamburg (2003) during the farewell party. You are one of the most wanted and famous dance instructors. So where, why and when you began to dance salsa?
Francisco Vazquez: I love this music! I heard it in my youth in Mexico, but there I just danced cumbia. I started learing salsa in L. A., exactly on 28th February in 1990, that's 14 years ago. I just went to clubs and learned dancing by watching and practising. I never took classes. Then I taught my brothers.
