Hanna-Lee Sakakibara moved to the U.S from Israel in her late teens to train at the Alvin Ailey Dance School in NYC. After a dance injury, she turned her artistic pursuits toward acting and relocated to Los Angeles, where she wrote, co-directed, and produced her one-woman show "Improbable". The show features unlikely stories from her life growing up in Israel, conveyed through a range of characters, dance, and live music.
When she's not acting, Hanna-Lee can be found taking ballet classes, training in Wushu, or cooking up a storm while pretending to be a contestant on the Great British Baking Show.
