She has over 19 years of training in ballet, jazz, lyrical, contemporary, hip hop, tap, and modern dance. She studied at several studios throughout the Southern California area as well as with the Joffrey Ballet through their Summer Intensive Program.

In 2014, Ania was featured in the Huffington Post for a video art piece she performed in and co-directed called “cloth.” Her work has screened at the British Film Institute, the Downtown Film Festival Los Angeles, the DanceLive Festival of Contemporary Dance in Scotland, and at festivals in France, Canada, Belgium, England, Italy, Spain, Russia, Denmark, and Argentina.
