Ivan Koumaev was born in Russia, but moved to Mill Creek, WA when he was 7 years old. He was driven to dance at age 11, after seeing the film Breakin’. In 2006 — while still in high school — he moved to L.A. to further pursue dance. He was part of the Hannah Montana Tour and made it to the Final 6 on Season 2 of SYTYCD. Most recently, Ivan was chosen by recording artist Tammy Fey as one of her back up dancers.
