Saki Francisco


Call me:

Saki (like the drink, but please don’t ever say that to me lol)


Teach Salsa, dance a whole lot of Bachata, and generally am everyone’s dance mum and PA

When not dancing I can be found:

Selling dancing shoes or behind the sewing machine. I’m a Creative Co-Director and costume designer of Solo Baila Designs and Supashoes Australia

I’m proud of:

My long-term partnership with my husband and dance partner, Brian. We’ve won many Australian titles together as well as placing 3rd in Amateur Bachata couple division at World Latin Dance Cup

I’d like to learn:

Spanish and many many more styles of dance (there’s too many to learn and never enough time)

Funny facts:

I am pretty flexible and often kick myself (or my dance partner if he happens to be behind me!) in the face when I high kick
