Hannah is a third generation dancer and began dancing at her mother’s dance studio, Cynthia Kniffin Dance Academy. Hannah’s love for dance grew tremendously over the years, and she decided to continue her training at Wright State University in Dayton, Ohio. She graduated Summa Cum Laude with her Bachelors of the Fine Arts in dance. While at WSU, she was able to work with many renowned dancers and choreographers. Some of her favorite opportunities over the years were being cast in two pieces choreographed by Ray Mercer and being one of his soloists.
Here at Fort Wayne Dance Collective, Hannah is an on-site and outreach teaching artist. She is also a part of the Touring Company. Hannah has loved being able to both teach and perform while working for the Dance Collective. Hannah feels this is a great place for ANYONE to feel community, have fun, and simply dance.
