Dancer, ethnochoreologist, festival practitioner, researcher, lecturer, designer… she is many things, but one of them is being lucky that those passions interweave and form the job that she loves.
Ana initiated her dance studies in 2006 with Arabian dances, Romani (Gypsy) dances, flamenco, and Irish dance. Then, in 2013, she graduated as a dance technician focused on classical ballet and jazz. She has been a trainee with the Irish Street Arts Circus and Spectacle Network (ISACS), owned a dance studio, worked and volunteered in many festivals, tutored and lectured at the University of Limerick.
Ana holds a Bachelor’s degree in Design, specialised in fashion, costume and footwear design. And, in 2017, she graduated with First Class Honours as Master of Arts in Ethnochoreology at the Irish World Academy of Music and Dance, University of Limerick, where her research examined the role of body movements and dance within Neo-Pagan rituals in present day Ireland.
She is currently a PhD candidate at the Irish World Academy of Music and Dance, where the focus of her research is the embodiment of culture within a festival/ritual context.
