Felicia Rose Limada, or simply referred to as Limada, is a New York and Trinidad & Tobago based performance artist. As a freelance dancer and spoken word poet, she has produced and directed one-woman shows entitled The Undisputed Trilogy in New York City.

By providing social mixers, dance workshops, pop-up fashion presentations, listening parties, and more, Limada’s company caters to the diversity and the needs of these artists to help expand and solidify their crafts.
