Adriana Monroy was born and raised in Los Angeles, California.  She started dancing at the age of 7.  She first started dancing in the style of ballet folklorico.  As she got older, she began to train in many different styles at many popular studios around LA.  She developed a huge passion for Hip Hop at the age of 15 due to a Quinceanera that she was a part of.  From there, she joined many dance teams which have lead to numerous performance opportunities.  She has worked on the YouTube hit series "Total Eclipse" and "Chicken Girls" in addition to many other amazing TV shows and stages around the country.  She has been teaching for many years and loves that she gets to teach her craft to young souls.  Kids are the future and we are here to spread peace, love and unity.
