Originally from South Africa, Licia started her classical ballet training at the age of 3 and has studied and passed all RAD ballet grades and vocational exams up to Advanced 1 level. She participated in many productions in South Africa, including roles in Snow Queen in CAPAB National Youth Ballet and competed in many Dance Eisteddfods.
In 2000, she immigrated with her family to England where she furthered her dance studies at The Royal Academy of Dance and graduated with BA (Hons) in the Art and Teaching of Ballet from the University of Durham in July 2003 and also received her Licentiate from The Royal Academy of Dance.
Since graduating, she has been freelance teaching at various schools in the London and Tunbridge Wells areas. Then in 2006 took the step in starting up her own school, which was a lifelong dream. In 2018, she made the decision to sell the school and to focus on her family which now consists of three gorgeous boys.
Teaching is something that has always been a huge part of Licia's life and she feels that it is a privilege for her to pass on her love and passion for dance.
