Michelle Nguyen aka Sattva Ninja started dancing by the age of 4 back in Hamburg/ Germany, where she was heavily inspired by her big sisters commitment into urban dance. Her own decision in keeping dance into her live even after her sister stopped dancing lead her in quitting as a high performance gymnast by the age of 12 and joining an urban dance class by MG and later on the Hip Hop Academy Hamburg. Since then she gathered as much as she could knowledges and skills in Hip Hop, B-Boying, choreography, House, Popping, Locking and in being a part of dance theatres, because in her world these two spots are the only ones that can be trusted in learning the truth from the best in her town. She discovered Voguing through her old friend, which challenged her feminine side when she was 16 years old. Her dedication and passion in knowing more about herself, femininity and the love that the ballroom scene gave her, made her deciding to fully focus on Voguing a year after, which lead to her actually working as a professional dancer herself.
Since 2015, gaining more knowledge through traveling to different countries and cities to be able to see different urban scenes and learn from Grandfather Archie Ninja, Mother Lasseindra Ninja, Danielle Polanco (Ninja), Javier Ninja, Father Stan Milan, Father Aviance Yamamoto, Yanou Ninja, Nagato Miyake-Mugler, Father Benjamin Milan, and more, Michelle Sattva Ninja now is based in London and achieved to be German Mother of the KIKI HOUSE OF ANGELS with Zueira Gucci Angels and a member of the ICONIC HOUSE OF NINJA.
