Today we announce that our talented Coach Ivanna has accepted the role of Aerial Coordinator!
Ivanna started out in a career dancing with various companies in Chicago, New York City, and Los Angeles and was introduced to aerial arts along the way. She has always found a deep sense of freedom and connection within movement. The ability to simultaneously tune in and get lost inside the expressiveness of moving is glorious. She was delighted to find that same sense of expressiveness in aerial, just with a different set of boundaries. She currently performs on various apparatus and sees each as a different dance partner to get to know and discover how to create with. In addition to performing, Ivanna is also an instructor in multiple studios in Seattle. She started at SANCA in 2017 and is excited to now step into the Aerial Coordinator position. She previously held the Lead Instructor position at Art Flying Aerial in Los Angeles and Aerial Director at Emerald City Trapeze Arts here in Seattle. Her teaching style is heavily influenced by her work as a Pilates instructor and bodyworker and her fascination with anatomy and biomechanics. We are overjoyed that she accepted this new position, please join us in congratulating her!
