Hannah was born and raised in Grand Forks, Canada and began dancing at the age of seven. After taking ballet classes locally, she began looking for a Christian dance studio with values more in line with her beliefs.  When she was not able to find any local Christian dance studios, she began a search online and found Paradosi's dance school, Surrendered School of Dance. During the shutdowns of the pandemic, she began taking ballet classes online with SSD.  

After learning about how Paradosi used dance as an instrument of worship, Hannah began to dream about how her love of dance could be combined with her faith.  After graduating high school, Hannah was offered a short-term opportunity as a visiting student artist in the Apprenticeship Program to train with Paradosi allowing her to explore the possibilities of using dance in ministry.
