History

Bio

Micaya is a dance instructor, choreographer and producer extraordinaire. Formally trained in many diverse dance forms, she incorporates a wide range of diversity in her choreography and teaching styles.

Micaya’s classes are LOVED by many students of all ages and backgrounds due to her exceptional teaching skills and the non-intimidating atmosphere she creates in her classes. In 2012, she was awarded "Best Dance Teacher" by the the SF Bay Guardian Readers Poll.

In 1993, Micaya began producing high energy, grassroots, sold-out hip-hop dance shows in the heart of San Francisco’s Mission District. Those shows led up to the creation of the First Annual San Francisco Hip Hop DanceFest in 1999 at Theatre Artaud. Now in its 20th year and presented at the historic Palace of Fine Arts Theatre, the critically acclaimed San Francisco International Hip Hop DanceFest has grown to be THE event that has put San Francisco on the map for presenting hip hop dance.

Acknowledged as the FIRST festival dedicated specifically to hip hop dance, the Internationally recognized, award winning SF International Hip Hop DanceFest is a groundbreaking event, hosting companies from all over the globe.

Micaya is also the founder, director and choreographer of SoulForce Dance Company. Micaya’s choreography and SoulForce dancers have been in music videos, commercials, touring productions, festivals, corporate events and more.

Micaya also produces “Mission in the Mix” every June. Mission in the Mix is a multidisciplinary show that features SoulForce and up and coming local talent and students.
