CEO-Founder and Dancer
Ivis Torres is a professional dancer, performer, and instructor with more than 19 years of training and 9 years of teaching experience. Ivis’ passion for dance began at a very early age when she started creative movement classes at 3 years old. At age 7, Ivis started training more rigorously with ballet, jazz, and gymnastics and by age 14 she was competing pre-professionally. By 17 years old, Ivis was dancing 8 hours a day to develop her skills and sharpen her technique in different styles of dance including Contemporary, Jazz, Hip Hop, Salsa, Bachata and others.
By age 20, Ivis was traveling around the world to teach, compete, and perform with various famous dance academies from New York City and other parts of the world. As part of her dance travels, Ivis has been to almost every state in the US and abroad to countries in South America, Europe, and Africa.
Ivis took a break from traveling in order to finalize her education at Columbia University in New York City, where she graduated with her bachelor’s degree in 2017. During college, Ivis was a member of Columbia’s dance teams and trained with different companies, including Broadway Dance Center and Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater.
Shortly after the birth of her daughter in 2019, Ivis decided to found REACH DANCE STUDIO, a place to inspire creativity, self-love, and passion through the beautiful art of dance.
