With a background largely in the styles of contemporary, jazz, and hip hop, Chawna has had a life-long passionate relationship with dance! After pursuing professional training in the University of Calgary Dance Program, Chawna crossed paths with the art of Burlesque and has since established herself as a prominent Burlesque artist under the stage name Eva Angel. Burlesque has brought her to grace many stages in Calgary and across Canada, including the Calgary, Vancouver, and Edmonton International Burlesque Festivals, Wild Mountain Music Fest, and Calgary’s High Performance Rodeo. In 2018, Chawna began work with an accessible dance company, Momo Movement (now National accessArts Centre), and has sought to discover ways to bring equity and accessibility into dance and Burlesque ever since.
