Artistic Director & Co-Founder

Liliana Vinueza

A personal note from our Artistic Director.

KUVANA embodies my lifelong passion to classical ballet. I started at age 4, dreaming, dressing, performing in front of a mirror and seeing myself on pointe, levitating through the stage. I could almost hear the applause. Well, it has been a great experience since. Now, KUVANA allows me to share 30+ years of career experience as a dancer, educator, choreographer and performing arts producer.

I honor technique as the enabler of perfection in dance, but also, as the greatest defense against injury. I think of ballet as poetry in motion. Just as a beautifully spoken verse can touch one’s heart, so too, can a perfected movement along with the dancers reflection of her/his love of the art, can touch one’s soul.

If you are serious about ballet education, you have found your home. Welcome to KUVANA.
