Dario's passion for dancing began at an early age. Dancing connected him with many musicians, Dancers and Singers. His love for dance has led me to teach Salsa, merengue, Bachata and Cumbia.
Painting gives Dario the ability to express his passion in the form of meaningful art. His creativity is from the heart; he create what he feel in the moment.
I also enjoy photography. Every day I try to find something that I have never noticed before, and the lens has the power to keep these memories alive. Every moment captured with the lens of a camera can make you return or relive a special moment.”
