Hannah, recently named '25 to Watch' by Dance Magazine, is a NYC based dancer/choreographer making work that “tackles topics like death and queer identity through rigorous, inventive movement and wit” (Dance Magazine). Having graduated from the Conservatory of Dance at SUNY Purchase with a BFA in Performance and Composition and a minor in Arts Management, Hannah has gone on to work with Doug Varone & Dancers, Raja Feather Kelly, Sue Bernhard Danceworks, and Megan Williams Dance, in venues such as The Joyce Theater, New York City Center, the Park Avenue Armory, and New York Live Arts. Her work as 2nd Best Dance Company has been commissioned by the GALLIM x CreateArt, Kizuna Dance, and SUNY Purchase where she was a guest teaching artist from 2016-2019. 2nd Best was the 2019 Resident Artist of Triskelion Arts where they created their newest evening length dance-play, RED, and where they continue to host a weekly technique class. Hannah's choreography has also been presented through Mark Morris Dance Group/Duffy Performance Space, Dixon Place, New York International Fringe Festival, The Wassaic Project, and appears in music videos for artists like Half Waif and Frankie Cosmos. Other stuff she forgot to mention is that she studied abroad at the Beijing Dance Academy, doesn’t really like cats unless they are those cats that act like they are dogs, and has green eyes even though sometimes they look brown. Hannah was recently named an Emerging Choreographer by Springboard Danse Montréal and will be spending the month of June 2020 creating a new work in Montréal. Hannah currently teaches in New York City and Connecticut.
