Born in Montevideo, Uruguay, on May 19,1977. During his youth he devoted himself with passion to various sports activities, especially football, obtaining excellent results.
He moved to Italy in 1993 and met the great Cuban master ALBERTO VALDES, thanks to whom he approached the world of dance. Salsa, Hip Hop, Funky, Afro and other disciplines become part of Fernando's baggage, who thus undertakes his learning path, also participating in important intensive study trips to Cuba.
Then he joined the prestigious Caribbean dance company "Otra Idea";, performing in Italy and abroad in numerous shows and performances alongside great dancers. In 2000 Fernando's ambition and desire to grow further led him to take the road of choreography as well. And, wanting to create something of their own, together with RAFAEL GONZALEZ, the dance company that soon became one of the most famous on the Caribbean dance scene worldwide: the TROPICAL GEM DANCE COMPANY. In these 17 years of career the company has performed all over the world, participating in the most important festivals, congresses and events.
Among Sosa's many successes, we remember those obtained at the SalsaOpen world competition: in 2001 she won third place in Puertorico and three years later she won first place in Milan, flanked by his dancing partner Alyra Lennox. His artistic career literally took off when, in 2006, he choreographed and danced in the video of the song ''Amor Imposible"; by Milton Morales. In 2007, together with Marco Berretta (Flamboyan Dancers), he produced and choreographed the first Latin American musical danced, performed and sung live: '';Fantàsia";. In the same year, he performed with a reduced line-up of Tropical Gems at the TV show ''alent1" and here he won the prize for the best choreography in Latin American dance. Two years later, thanks to the artistic collaboration with his friend, as well as master and pianist, Massimo Scalici recorded his first recording success entitled "Simplemente Fernando";, of which he is author of the lyrics and singer-interpreter. Even on television Fernando Sosa is able to assert his talent.
Fernando wrote, produced and acted in the film " The Latin Dream". Movie dedicated to Latin American Dance.
In 2020 we celebrate 20 years of Tropical Gem Company.
