Fredrika is a Hip Hop, Ballet, Contemporary and Traditional Japanese Taiko drumming teacher. Fredrika takes the responsibilities of an educator very seriously and works hard to develop mutual trust and respect with her students. After earning her diploma from San Francisco School of the Arts, she immediately pursued a career in dance education and started (at age 17) to teach, in the youth program, at Dance Mission Theater in San Francisco, CA. Her teaching experiences have exposed her to diverse populations and art forms: from preschoolers to adults, from new to experienced aspiring dancers.
Fredrika’s experiences as a teacher and performer have taken her to New York, Lebanon, Egypt, St. Maarteen, Chile, Havana, and Santiago, Cuba. She is regular performer with Dance Brigade, Alayo Dance Company, and has performed and toured with Holly Near.
She feels honored and excited to be on Olivia’s staff once again and partnering with the Mind, Body, and Spirit team.
