Felicia Limada, or simply referred to as Limada, is a New York based performance artist. Predominantly a dancer, she has trained with prestigious schools throughout her childhood and well into her young adult career. While she has been technically trained under the names of Obediah Wright, Deborah Zall, Cassandra Phiffer, and Michael Leon Thomas to name a few, Limada briefly drew away from the art of dance and delved into other mediums such as writing, modeling, and photography. Limada is a graduate of SUNY Purchase College with a B.A. in Journalism and a certified Zumba® Fitness Instructor. She is the Management Intern at the Civilians and continues to freelance artistically, with plans of enrolling into grad school for a M.F.A. in the Performing Arts.
