With his continuous love and passion for dance, Nico founder of the Flying Dance Festival, an free outdoor festival that brings the community together through the arts. The event started small as one afternoon event called Salsa In the park but as the years went by, Nico wanted to share all the different dance styles and cultures he got to learn from and the interactions he had with the different instructors helped him grow as a dancer, and as a person. This personal growth is something that can be achieved by anyone and dance is a good avenue as any to start exploring who you are as a human being, your interactions with your family, your community strengthens us as a whole. Dancing in the park festival is a place where anything is possible.
