Hannah fell in love with all things dance after her first ballet class at the age of 3.
She trained in ballet and pointe at a local studio in Japan until relocating to San Diego, where she was exposed to modern, contemporary, jazz, lyrical, and tap. During her time at San Diego School for the Creative and Performing Arts, she had the opportunity to dance works by Donald McKayle, Jose Limon, Anna Sokolow, Fred Benjamin, Tong Wang, and Christopher Huggins. She has spent a season as a member of Philadanco 2 (Philadelphia Dance Company) under the direction of Donald Lunsford where she danced works by Daniel Ezralow and Fransisco Gella.
Hannah is also the recipient of “Most Compelling Dancer” at San Diego Dance Theater’s Young Choreographer’s Showcase 2016 and the recipient of “Audience Favorite Choreography” at the showcase in 2018. A firm believer in using movement as a form of individual self expression, leading from the heart, and always treating others with kindness, Hannah hopes to help others discover their love for dance.
