Ilana Reynolds is a performer, choreographer and teaching artist. Her interests range from the meticulously choreographed to instant compositions. She enjoys physicality, freedom, restraint and concentration. She began her BA in dance at the University of Massachusetts-Amherst/USA and finished her studies at Escola da Fundaçao de Dança in Salvador, Brazil. Between 2004-2012, Ilana danced professionally with Brazilian choreographer Augusto Soledade in Miami, FL. She toured nationally and internationally with the company as a dancer, rehearsal director, repertory teacher and worked extensively with children. In 2008 Ilana received two artistic scholarships through the State of Florida to work with choreographer Christine Brunel in Essen, Germany. Deeply inspired by their exchange, she moved to Germany in 2012. Within a year, she became a collaborating member of Lake Studios Berlin, an artist initiated rehearsal/performance/production space, where she produced and curated works of her own and others. She continues to perform and teach contemporary dance techniques to students and professionals of the performing arts in Germany and abroad. In 2017 Ilana will complete her Masters Degree in contemporary dance education at the Hochschule für Musik und Darstellende Kunst in Frankfurt am Main. She is an awarded scholar of the Studienstiftung des Deutschen Volkes.
