Miss Hanh began dancing at age eight as a baton twirler and started ballet lessons at age ten. Her twirling career accumulated to state, regional, and national titles by the time she turned fourteen. As ballet became more prominent in her life, she transferred her focus to training professionally as a ballerina. She has attended summer programs at the Joffrey School in NYC, Boston Ballet, and Oregon Ballet Theatre on scholarship. At seventeen, Hanh received a full scholarship to attend the School of Oregon Ballet Theatre and became a company apprentice in 2009. She has danced in such repertoire as The Nutcracker, Sleeping Beauty, Swan Lake, Stars and Stripes, Serenade, Emeralds, The Four Temperaments, and Allegro Brilliante.
