All about us: Adriana

We’re so excited to now be dancing with new Hip Hop Club Rockstar Adriana! As a Bay Area native, Adriana has been dancing across the city for years and performs as part of a Latin dance team. You can be sure you’ll see that flare and spice in class!  When she’s shaking it across the the uforia Hip Hop Floor or dancing as part of her Batchata team Supernova, you’ll have to embrace the sweat to keep up with Adriana. Come find Adriana getting sexy up in Nob Hill and read on for more on what she’s up to when she’s not dancing–which is basically never! 


AdrianaFavorite local Hot Spots?

Between teaching and hanging out as a Concierge, I  spend a lot of time in Nob Hill! After getting my favorite peanut butter filled pretzel bites from Trader Joe’s just up the street, I like spending time outside walking around and listening to music. I love relaxing in Huntington Park up by Grace Cathedral. It’s a bit of a hike up California street but it’s so peaceful up there on the hill. I love the sound of the Cathedral bells.

Before I found uforia studios, I spent most of my time in the city down in the Mission where my Batchata team practices so it’s been so fun to get to know Nob Hill and discover a whole new part of the city!

What do you do in your spare time?

I love hiking and spending time out in the fresh air and the beauty of nature. I’m also a huge book worm. Right now I’m on a non-fiction kick and just finished Intimacy: Trusting Oneself and the Other by Osho. It’s one of my favorite books now! I’m always looking for suggestions so let me know what your favorite reads are! As you might expect, I also love to go out dancing with my friends! Dance, dance, dance! .

Where do you find your uforia?

I find my uforia when I’m in the dance studio listening to music and letting each beat move me. Whether it’s Hip Hop or partner dancing, there’s nothing like the feeling of music moving through your body.

What are your favorite pre/post workout snacks?

I like to keep it pretty light before and after workouts. I often eat a mixture of fresh cut fruits or nuts. I love raw almonds and peanuts. I’d also have to say that ice cream is a total guilty pleasure that I never actually feel that guilty about!

Favorite songs at the moment?

I love songs that remind me of special moments or times in my life. Music is so powerful in that way. One of my current favorites is “Ay Vamos” by J Balvin because it reminds me of a special trip I took last year. And of course, I love Bachata music. If you caught a peak at my top Pandora stations, you find a lot of Vena and Voz a Voz.

Right now I’m really into “Bubblegum” by Jason Derulo and “Love More” by Chris Brown. They get me in a booty shaking mood!

Anything else you might want to share with our uforians?

Becoming a dance teacher is a dream come true! I’m so excited to join the Rockstar family out on the dance floor and can’t wait to meet you there!
