He has arranged intensive courses with international teachers and every semester he arranged a major dance performance. In addition to this, he also arranged and carried out a large number of cultural events and also been hired as a project manager on several occasions.
Francis is originally from Ghana but came to Sweden at the age of 10 years. Francis likes to meet new people from different cultures.
Francis has worked internationally for several years and travel around the whole Sweden and Europe to teach, speak and inspire children, young people who are passionate in dance.

Dancing has always been his main focus and therefor took up most of both work and leisure. Now, however, he has come to a point where he feels that he wants to explore new arenas and above all develop himself.
