As a very young man, Francois began his career by learning basic dance movements at an early age in his hometown of Les Cayes-Haiti. To him, it was a very natural part of his lifestyle and he considered it an entertaining and challenging hobby. In 1980, he began his exploration of ballroom dancing at the Policar International Dance Institute in Port-au-Prince, Haiti. In a short time, Francois also developed his skills and talents in music video productions at Tele-Haiti, where he gained invaluable expertise in that field. To him, the role of dance was unique in maintaining a national and cultural identity.
In 1984, Francois ventured to the United States to pursue and further develop his career in dance. He was invited to join the Arthur Murray Board of Ballroom Dance educators in its rigorous teaching training program. With the demands and challenges of the program, and as an associate social dance instructor, Francois achieved a greater understanding of the significance and impact dance would have on his life. He arduously studied and graduated with a Music and Video Business degree (MVB), Pursuing a Bachelor degree in Film Making from the prestigious Art Institute of Fort Lauderdale, Florida and developed a teaching system that conveyed to his students an understanding that musical rhythms are cultural representations, applied to body language emerging as communication of and for different ethnic communities.
His love for the art of dancing, and the valuable knowledge he acquired, led Francois, in 1989, to conduct specific research studies in the International Ballroom and Latin style dances with eminent coaches, including Claude Beauvaire of Canada, Lee Fox, Patti Troy, Colin Hilary and Francois Szony as well as a number of other well-known professional in Europe, while he pored over volumes of written works on the origins of music and dance at Nova University's research library.
As a graduate in business ownership and management, his career brought him in contact with the owner of one of the largest ballroom/nightclubs in South Florida, Kay's Starlite Ballroom, Inc. in Hallandale Beach, Florida. Through his efforts at this establishment, Francois was instrumental in bringing the Haitian community together in celebration and demonstration of their ethnic and cultural unity. At this time, he began development of a multicultural club organization that would embrace and bring together people of all ethnic backgrounds and offer the opportunity to exchange cultural diversity through the art of ballroom dancing. Six years later, he successfully founded The New Millennium Ballroom and registered it as a member of the International Dance Council with its primary objective as the inclusion of dance as a fundamental part of education in the school system, beginning at the elementary level.
