Jana Kristi

Performing Art – Portland, OR

Jana is a dancer, massage therapist, lover of nature, and life long learner. Her love for dance was discovered through Continuum Movement in 2005. From there, she went on to study dance formally and received a bachelors degree in Dance and Sociology from University of Oregon. With a post-modern background, she lives for the fleeting moments of potency that tuning into movement and the body can provide. From 2012 to 2016, Jana worked in a dance duet partnership, Thyme Sensitive Dance, where they focused on creating movement and performing around the west coast. For the past year and a half, she has been studying Compositional Improvisation with a group of Portland dancers. They abide by four agreements: show up, pay attention, tell the truth, and to be open to outcome. Jana’s love for movement allows her to explore sensation and receive awareness through the body-mind-spirit connection. ...more
