About Aliza Rivka


Aliza Rivka has served as a dance therapist, DJ, ritual guide & embodied leader for over 15 years, helping to guide thousands of people to liberation through movement. She is a Board Certified Dance/Movement Therapist, an ordained Kohenet Hebrew Priestess & officially a DJ Witch (graduate of PhDJ).


After 32 years near New York City, Aliza traded the concrete jungles of NYC for the jungles of Costa Rica to pursue health & a life closer to nature. She now lives full time in Costa Rica, leading dance community locally in the Southern Zone of Costa Rica & globally from her Zoom screen. 


Dance Queen & Mariposa Movement are the natural outgrowth of Aliza's personal healing journey. She is honored to steward these growing communities of women raising the vibration of our planet through DANCE! Connect with Aliza's unique approach to movement via Dance Queen (virtual membership), Flight School (dance priestess facilitator training), in person events  in Costa Rica or 1:1 mentorship.

Aliza Rivka’s leadership in ecstatic dance and movement lends a portal to another world. I NEVER thought I'd be able to let go enough to truly reap the benefits of the practice, but Aliza's high energy, warmth, love and joy melted all my barriers and had me dancing like a priestess in a very short order. I was not looking to find myself in ecstatic dance, but after surrendering to the practice and the flow of energy, the result was nothing short of transformational. All I can express is my endless gratitude. You really have to experience this practice for yourself!


Aliza is pure magic. She shares herself and her journey so generously. Being in her presence inspires me to create a life so abundant that I'm bursting with love, because I want what she's having. Her deep, tender, fiery spirit is contagious and ignites everyone and everything around her.
