Introduction: Hi everyone! My name is Belicia and I am a dancer, choreographer, and instructor. I specialize in Latin ballroom and commercial heels dance. Private Latin Dance Lessons: I offer private ballroom dance lessons (for both singles and couples) in the International Latin style (cha-cha, samba, rumba, jive, paso doble) as well as social dancing (salsa and bachata). Wedding Dance: Truly one of my happiest jobs to date is choreographing first dances for wedding couples. You and your fiancé choose the song, and I will teach you the moves to custom-tailored, original choreography and help bring your wedding dance vision to life! Ballroom Dance Fitness (LaBlast): I teach a format of dance fitness called LaBlast. Created by former Dancing With the Stars professional Louis van Amstel, LaBlast is partner-free ballroom dance, formatted for fitness. I received my LaBlast certification in 2019 and have taught this dance fitness format for the past 2 years. I currently teach ballroom fitness in various locations across the Peninsula (San Francisco, Redwood City, Santa Clara). Burlesque/Heels Dance: Beyond ballroom, I also specialize in Burlesque and heels dance. I began teaching Burlesque in college, where I started my own Burlesque dance club. I continue to teach group classes at various locations in the Bay Area and love empowering women to feel confident in their movement ability. Should any of the above interest you, feel free to send me a message. Movement is my passion, and I can't wait to share it with you.

I had so much fun getting back into dancing with Belicia’s help. I reached out to her with an untraditional request; to help me practice both leading and following steps for my wedding rumba. With only a couple sessions (and some practice on my own) I felt confident and ready. Belicia gave me suggestions on form, pacing, created video content and practiced the steps until it turned into muscle memory. Wonderful experience!

Belicia is the best! She came recommended by a friend, and we are so glad we got her help for choreographing and practicing our wedding first dance. Neither of us are very coordinated, but somehow we leveled up so much after just a few sessions with Belicia. She developed lovely customized choreography for our song, and made adaptations to it based on our feedback about comfort levels. She is also very responsive and flexible about scheduling, and made things really easy for us by meeting us to practice outdoors in our backyard. She’s such a warm and encouraging personality, making sessions with her a big bright spot on our crazy month-before-the-wedding calendar! 10/10 can’t recommend her highly enough!

Belicia was amazing! My husband and I had totally neglected our first dance and contacted Belicia a week and a half before our wedding. We had a hour session that I wasn’t sure would be enough but boy were we wrong. She got to my place on time, even a few minutes early and we learned a whole minute and a half routine. She even recorded us at the end so we could have something to look back on as we practiced. It also gave us room to add to it which made it a 2 minute routine overall. She was so sweet, kind and patient and we’re so grateful we found her. Belicia was very responsive from the start which made us so much more comfortable as we were strapped for time. Thank you Belicia for helping bring the magic to our wedding. It set the tone for the evening and everyone loved it!

I had the best experience working with Belicia. My dancing "style" is usually 'dance like no one is watching' because usually no one is. But when it came to my wedding I knew everyone would be, which is why I asked my wife if we could take dance lessons. From the get go Belicia made the process fun, and for someone with precisely zero dance training or experience like myself, she also made it unintimidating. Crucial part, that. Belicia is supportive and made it fun, working with us on our foundations and helping us drill the choreography in a way that was never frustrating. Another aspect of working with Belicia that my wife and I enjoyed was that she took our feedback. In the beginning we went full formal ballroom, but after discussing it, we decided we wanted to lighten it up and make it a little sexy. Belicia helped us change up the choreography, and even if we had an idea of our own, she was always supportive and helped us get it to a point where it worked. Look, the dance was what scared me the most when I thought about my wedding day. After working with Belicia and crushing our dance, I can say honestly that it's not one of my fondest memories of that day. Thanks Belicia!

Belicia is the best! My husband and I worked with Belicia to create a unique first dance for our wedding! We knew we wanted it to be sultry, fun, impressive and not your average first dance. Belicia taught us ballroom moves and then added in twists where we could spice up our moves, freestyle while still looking great and showing our personalities. I even came to Belicia one day and said "There's a move I saw on 'Dancing With the Stars' can you teach us??" and SHE DID. She is thoughtful, responsive, professional and so much fun. We cannot recommend her enough an, needless to say, our wedding dance was a HIT. Our friends and family were cheering, laughing, clapping and we got so much positive feedback after-even the DJ said he was impressed. Thank you, Belicia!!!
