Franco discovered the GYROTONIC® and GYROKINESIS® Methods after having injured his shoulder blade during a lengthy European tour. He had originally tried many methods of rehabilitation, but was so encouraged by the results of the GYROTONIC® method that he decided to pursue a career as a teacher in the GYROTONIC® and GYROKINESIS® methods. He worked for many years at White Cloud Studio in Rome directed by Master trainer, Pietro Gagliardi.
During his GYROTONIC® career Franco has had the honor of working closely with the inventor of the method, Juliu Horvath. Franco performed dances choreographed by Juliu and participated in Juliu’s classes for three years while being part of White Cloud Opera.
Working so closely with Juliu gave Franco the opportunity to explore an extended repertoire and the intentions behind it so that he has the ability to teach comprehensive material even beyond the formats!
