Born in Mexico City, Paco started his career in classical dance at the École Supérieure de Ballet du Québec, which developed in him an early interest for a greater body awareness, bringing him to discover different ways of training such as Gaga, Rubberband method, Yoga, Feldenkrais and meditation. Since 2015, he has been a dancer with RUBBERBAND, under the direction of Victor Quijada, and has  toured with the company in Canada, the United States, Mexico, Germany and Poland. In 2014 he founded the multidisciplinary lab Quantum Collective, which was presented twice by Tangente in Montreal. Paco has worked with other Montreal based artists and companies like PPS Danse, Anne Plamondon and Martin Messier and has been a guest teacher at Springboard Danse Montreal and Domaine Forget. He is a self taught filmmaker and photographer with a main focus on the human body, movement and natural landscapes.
