Hannah Vojsak

Preschool/Ballet Instructor/Choreographer

An energetic mother of three young children, Hannah Vojsak began her dancing career in Charleston, West Virginia.  While watching her younger sister perform in her first dance recital, Hannah fell in love with the stage; it was from this point on that she relentlessly pursued the art of dance.

Within one year of studying ballet, Hannah was selected to join River City Youth Ballet Ensemble under the direction of Michelle Raider.  While a member of RCYBE, Hannah performed key roles in Peter and the Wolf, the Chinese and Spanish variations in The Nutcracker, variations from Coppelia, original choreography in The West Virginia Dance Festival, leading roles in the original productions of Green Mansions, Pas de Poeterie, City Scapes, and My Many Colored Days, variations from Coppelia, along with many other original works.  She also assisted teaching classes during this time, and took master classes from Finis Jhung in New York City, and Duncan Noble, among others.

To further her dance education, Hannah moved to Columbus, Ohio to study at BalletMet, where she had the opportunity to study ballet under Yoko Ichino and Susan Dromisky.  She studied here for several years, and also took part in the Summer Intensive Programs, where she took classes taught by Gerard Charles alongside BalletMet’s professional company.  She studied ballet, modern, contemporary, jazz, and flamenco while at BalletMet.

While a member of JADCO Contemporary Dance Company in West Virginia in 2004, Hannah had the opportunity to perform the leading role in an original production of Thistledown Faeries.  Hannah also choreographed original pieces in JADCO’s Choreography Showcase.  While not performing and taking classes herself, Hannah furthered her teaching experience at the Academy of Arts at January’s.

At the age of 20, Hannah made the decision to forgo her dance career to study photography at The Ohio State University.  She met her husband three years later, and after he joined the Air Force, they moved to California, and most recently, Germany.  It was while in Germany that Hannah reignited her love for dance by teaching ballet at Spangdahlem Air Base.  Now relocated to Fredericksburg, Virginia, she hopes to continue teaching and to share her love of dance with all those around her.
