Nina SawantDancing on long pieces of fabric, high above the ground, Nina's performances have been described as "breathtakingly beautiful and dangerously heartfelt."

Nina has always been a chameleon in the visual and performing arts.  As a child she studied dance and visual art and learned to sew from her mother. While studying ballet and modern dance at the University of South Florida, she performed in KaTonga, an African-themed musical at Busch Gardens theme park. While dancing in KaTonga, Nina began training with her first aerial partner, Vitaliy Krymskyi. Together they traveled to Ukraine to further their training with Vitaliy's family and perform together in traditional tent shows.
