Lumyr Derisier is a Boston native who has been an artist dancing and shooting photography for years. With a deep love of dance and a passion for people, Lumyr finds joy in teaching dance, connecting energy with others and experience the creativity of others on the dance floor. This is similar to what he does in his professional photography company of enjoying the whole process of capturing images and creating projects. We mention Lumyr's photography as you may find his beaming smile momentarily hidden by a camera lens while you are at F.O.L.D. Make sure to grab a latin dance with Lumyr while at the congress and you will have so much fun as he makes all who he dances with feel his joy and passion in dance!
