Secada has been a dance educator, Capoeirista and Yoga instructor for over a decade. Presenting workshops in over 20 countries, her signature dance style fuses elements of Afro, Capoeira and urban dance techniques. Her teaching methodology is founded on a holistic approach to access our authentic and primordial expression through the study of physical, mental, spiritual and energetic mediums.
Secada prides herself in bridging the gap between urban and folkloric dance forms. She has choreographed for Americas Best Dance Crew and was honored by NIKE Women with a series of solo dance commercials and an international Nike campaign, which spread her unique dance style world wide and lead to performance opportunities with Madonna and Fergie. She has studied in Africa for many years drawing influences from African dance forms such as Congolese, Sabar, Djembe, Afro-Haitian, Afro-Cuban and numerous African street styles such as N’dombolo, Kuduro and Coupé Décalé. She has studied Capoeira Angola and Regional since 2003 under the guidance of Joao Grande in NYC and Professor Cascavel of Abada Capoeira in Brazil. Secada is also a RYT 200 Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga instructor, Thai massage Therapist and Certified Holistic Health Coach. Secada currently lives between NYC and Brazil continuing her dance journey and developing new works for her company Kinetic Junglist Movement, a neo-ritual performance collective. She continues to dedicate her life to keeping the sacred ritual of dance alive, transcendent and evolving.
