“I think I was born into it,” Francesca says when asked why she began dancing. “When I was really young, my parents took me to a dance group when I lived in New York City. And my mother said I had some talent.
“But then later on, I didn’t do a certain dance move right and she said I didn’t have any talent, so she stopped the classes.
“But throughout the years, I kept being picked to be part of dance productions and dance groups. So I just stayed with it.”
