We are so pleased to announce that we have taken on an apprentice this year: Ivana Berkhout. Ivana will learn all the dance roles and has a big job ahead of her. 

Ivana started dancing in Amsterdam at the Lucia Marthas Institute for Performing Arts. After graduating, the continued her dance studies at the Fontys Dance Academy in Tilburg. This coming season, she'll be in her 4th year of the contemporary-urban track and theater dance. She has had the great privilege of working with a variety of contemporary dance choreographers. 

In addition to attaining her Bachelor's in Dance, Ivana is also engaged in singing, drama and aerial arts. Four years ago she started her aerial adventure in Belgium. She trained and performed with a company of aerial arts for a few years and continued training, performing and teaching in the Aerial hoop in Alkmaar and Tilburg. 

Ivana is excited to take on this apprenticeship in Project Zahira as she feels she'll learn a lot. Welcome to the team, Ivana! We are so happy to have you.
