Originally from Syracuse, NY, Hanaah found her love of dance at an early age. She has trained extensively in ballet, modern, jazz and flamenco as well as practicing yoga, Pilates and Gyrotonics. Hanaah recently graduated from Florida State University where she received a BFA in Dance and Spanish and studied under teachers such as Dan Wagoner, Gerri Houlihan and Jawole Zollar. From 2009-2011 she was a member of Dance Repertory Theatre, a repertory based performance group in the School of Dance, and performed in works by Steve Koester and Alan Danielson, among others. Also while at Florida State, Hanaah was the recipient of the Undergraduate Research and Creative Endeavors Award which allowed her to travel to Central America to study traditional dance techniques. This sparked her curiosity in Spanish forms of cultural expression and instilled a love of traveling and arts-based research. In addition to working as Company Manager of Flamenco Vivo Carlota Santana, Hanaah enjoys performing, teaching and choreographing. She plans to continue working in the field of Arts Administration while enjoying the many creative opportunities within this vibrant NYC arts community.
