Afrolatinfunk.dance is an online dance academy dedicated to the training and personal development of Latin / Afro-Latin dancers across the world!
Established by Frankie Martinez in 2002, this formal system of training includes a full curriculum of classes designed to mature and refine dancers through technique, philosophy, and musical understanding. Just just as the method of Afro Latin Funk continues to grow and evolve, so do the students who practice it.
We invite you to join us on this journey of self-exploration and expression into the world of Latin and Afro-Latin dance, and hope you will find value in the lessons offered along the way!
