Project Description

Jana Hicks

AntiGravity® Teacher

A native of Texas, I hold a BFA in dance from SMU and have performed with a variety of companies and choreographers in Texas and New York throughout my dance career. I am currently Co-Artistic Director of The Next Stage Project and have taught and choreographed for over 30 years in the US and abroad. I currently teach Contemporary Dance at Steps on Broadway, Peridance Capezio Center, and The Joffrey Ballet Center.

I began my yoga training in the Vinyasa tradition at Om Yoga Center and the powerful, healing practice has been an integral part of my life alongside dance ever since. I hold multiple yoga certifications, through Om Yoga (Cyndi Lee), Now:Yoga at The Shala (Edward Jones, Frank Mauro, and Joe Miller), and Y4C (Tari Prinster). I teach Yoga at Now:Yoga at The Shala, Peridance Capezio Center, Physiologic, and for Y4C.  

I was introduced to AntiGravity® yoga in Laura Colón’s class and immediately loved being in the hammock. I was intrigued with the way it complimented my other practices and teachings. As an AntiGravity® certified teacher at ANYA, I look forward to sharing the playful and restorative benefits offered through the practice.
