Bio

Diana hails from Portugal and Ivan from Russia, both relocating to Los Angeles in pursuit of their individual dance careers.  Over their 10+ years in the business their dance credits include Beyonce, Justin Timberlake, Jay-Z, Missy Elliot, Usher, JLo, Rihanna, Katy Perry, Chris Brown, Nicki Minaj, Ne-Yo, Cardi B and so many more.  From multiple super bowls, countless awards shows, music videos, commercials, movies and world tours, their understanding of dance and the industry is vast and respected.

Prior to their collaborative ventures Diana was Assistant Choreographer on projects such as Fenty Fashion Show and Ed Sheeran’s and Lil Baby’s“2 Step”, while Ivan worked the same role over several projects for artists like Justin Timberlake and Backstreet Boys.  They both understood the value of “on-the-job” training under great minds to develop their own individual choreographic voices.

In 2020, Diana founded her worldwide performance and education company “MOTUS” which was hers and Ivan’s first collaborative venture.  They quickly noticed the power of collaboration and began to tag-team multiple projects mainly, but not limited to, choreography for artists such as Khalid, Dani Leigh, Big Time Rush and national campaigns for FORD as well as McDonalds – thus the start of MOTUScreative.

Whether its Diana’s African-infused and street style-influenced intricate movement or Ivan’s knack for big picture conceptualization they both cherish versatility and exploration, believing they can bring to the world what they love most about live performance.
