Joana Dinah Schwing

Joana is a freelance dancer and aerial acrobat.

Born in Canada, she studied dance at the Fontys Tanzakademie in Tilburg and has been seen in musicals and operas, at festivals and various other stages since her successful graduation in 2008.

Her entry into aerial acrobatics was a pole dance intensive course in early 2013. A few years later, she added other gravity-defying disciplines, such as Aerial hoop, silks and net. She loves challenges and thrills in her work, but is more calm and level-headed in her private life.
