Alicia Dance Dragon Slayer
Alicia the Dance Dragon Slayer is a Bay Area Dancer, Instructor, and Dance Inspiration Coach. Hailing from Bronx, NY, Hip-Hop and Caribbean culture were apart of her household and community which informed her passion for movement and dance, even as she began ballet training at the age of seven.

Her M.A. degree concentration in Creative Expression with studies and research focused on Dance Therapy allows Alicia to meld her dance training, personal experience with dance trauma, and mental wellness backgrounds to help students slay dance related insecurities or trauma, which she calls “Dance Dragons.” Currently, Alicia works as a full-time OUSD middle school dance teacher and also teaches adults in her personal dance brand called Diaspora Dance, a Caribbean Vibes meets Afro-Pop Dance Party Class. An Oakland wife and mom of two boys, Alicia the Dance Dragon Slayer is seeking all-level movers ready to DANCE, INSPIRE, AND SLAY!
