Ivanna was introduced to aerial arts while, quite literally, dancing on the steps of New York City. Having danced professionally for many years with highly athletic dance companies and being a rock climber, it seemed natural to combine the two and start dancing in the air. She has since performed and taught in numerous cities around the USA. Ivanna is also a fully certified Pilates instructor and massage therapist and has gathered an extensive knowledge of body mechanics. She combines this with all her other training in order to teach efficiency, body awareness, strength, creativity, musicality, and most importantly trust in yourself on all apparatuses. Mainly though, she just tells you to do things and laughs a lot.
