Let me move you! I offer classes, workshops, retreats and custom experiences with ArcanaDance™, Nia, Archetypal Choreography, and Stretch and Fly.

I believe my purpose in life is to serve as a conduit for others to awaken to the wisdom and joy of the body.

I am a somatic alchemist. I create and facilitate embodied movement experiences that support you in having a more loving, kind, pleasurable, respectful and empowered relationship with your body. I want you to feel vital, whole, strong, flexible, mobile, stable and in harmony with your unique body.

Whether it’s through ArcanaDance™, Nia, Archetypal Choreography, or Stretch and Fly, I am a masterful somatic facilitator, bringing compassion, playfulness and joy to any experience. My guidance is simple, clear and will allow you to move your body in ways that honor and align with your mental, emotional, physical and spiritual capabilities and values.

My maiden name, Lucero, means “bright star.” I am excited to move, groove and share my light with you.

Movement Offerings

ArcanaDance™ – The tarot, embodied. If tarot cards could dance, this is what they’d look like!
Created by me, ArcanaDance™ is a fusion of tarot and movement that feels like dance therapy. Arcana is defined as a secret. Dance is defined as movement to music. When fused together, ArcanaDance™ is defined as a secret that is revealed through movement.

Nia, co-created by Debbie and Carlos Rosas, is a cardio-dance practice that combine 52 simple moves with dance arts, martial arts, and healing arts. Nia puts pleasure and joy at the center of your movement experience. I am licensed First Degree Black Belt Nia teacher and have additional training in the Nia 5 Stages of Self-Healing, MOVE IT and Moving to Heal. See Nia in action.

Archetypal Choreography is comprised of bodies of work I’ve created that blend the languages of archetype with the movement forms of Nia. These Nia-inspired choreographed routines allow you to experience the essence and power of an archetype and become a pathway to understand and expand, via the language of the body, personal and universal consciousness.

Stretch and Fly, co-created by me and Liziah Richards (www.liziahtherapies.com) is a unique empowering movement practice that combines simple dance moves and yoga. Experience original choreography that blends flowing movement and dynamic stillness.

Nia is a wellness and fitness format that combines the expressiveness of dance, the power and explosiveness of martial arts, and the mindfulness of the healing arts. The foundation of Nia is “through movement we find health.” With over 52 movements that mobilize the base, core and upper extremities of your body, Nia is a holistic practice that creates a pathway for you to explore both your movement potential and capacity for wellness. As you learn to listen and respond to your body, you begin to feel increased joy and pleasure in movement, which inherently improves your well-being.

Nia is practiced barefoot, non-impact, and adaptable to individual needs and abilities.

My Nia classes focus on developing a student’s self-love and ability to feel joy in their bodies.

As a facilitator, I strive to create a loving, mindful and open space for you to experience the joy of movement, self-expression and healing power of the Nia technique.

After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the class/meeting.


Pay what you can:
Here is the info to make a payment of your choice, in exchange for the class experience:


What to wear and have with you:

  1. Have the Zoom link/meeting ID and password provided to you by Zoom (confirmation of your registration).
  2. Wear comfortable clothes to move in freely.
  3. We dance barefoot but if you need the additional support, feel free to wear flexible (and comfy!) sneakers or shoes.
  4. Have water nearby so that you can stay hydrated.
  5. Feel free to have a yoga mat, towel or chair for our last song.
  6. Optional: Earbuds or wireless headset. You may want to use a wireless headset/headphones – it appears to be a good way to hear the music more clearly. If not, feel free to hook up a speaker to your laptop, tablet or phone OR use the speaker in the device you are using. It’s all good! Make the choice that feels right for you.


Some helpful tips:

  1. If you are not familiar with Zoom, this webpage offers excellent instructions: https://support.zoom.us/hc/en-us/articles/201362193-Joining-a-Meeting
  2. Log in to Zoom a few minutes (5-10) beforehand. If you arrive late, after I start teaching, I won’t be able to grant you access to the room. When you log in, you will virtually ushered into a “waiting room.” As soon as I see that you are there, I will grant you access to enter the Zoom room where we will be dancing together. This extra time also allows us to greet each other, check in and play with the sound together 😉
  3. You may want to use a wireless headset – it appears to be a good way to hear the music more clearly. If not, feel free to hook up a speaker to your laptop, tablet or phone OR use the speaker in the device you are using. It’s all good!
  4. Find a place where you have some room to move around freely.
  5. When entering the Zoom meeting, put yourself on mute.
  6. Make Sure Your Sound and Video are ON – there’s a way to test this on your screen.
  7. Select “Speaker View” on the top right corner of your screen to have the image of me large and clear.
  8. Enjoy the class and each other <3

There will be no in person classes in the near future. I will continue to heed the guidance of the CDC and local government professionals. Let’s all do our part to flatten the curve.

Feel free to share this invitation with others!

Looking forward to dancing with you online until we can resume dancing together in person.
