Rafael Quintas was born and raised in Brasilia. He moved to the U.S. in 2008 to attend Lindenwood University in St. Charles, MO, where he earned degrees in Dance and Mass Communication – Radio/TV.Through his studies at Lindenwood University he discovered his passion for choreography and teaching.
Quintas arrived in L.A. in January of 2013. He currently holds a regular class at EDGE Performing Arts Center and is a sub teacher at Movement Lifestyle. He has choreographed for multiple dance events in the Los Angeles area and most recently started creating and directing dance films. In his classes and movement he strives for the dancers to completely let go while being fully aware. To let the music guide the body while being present and understanding what is happening, from their hair to their toes. To help people discover themselves, to release their fears, to accept their flaws, to explore the uncomfortable, to release through movement to guide people to self love.
