About Hannah Romanowsky

Thanks so much for visiting my website! I’m a San Francisco bay area native who lives in Sonoma County with my husband, professional dance teaching artist Tom Mayock and our sweet kitty Niles. I feel fortunate to get to do what a love for a living – dance and cook! It brings me joy to inspire others to move their bodies in new ways, explore the arts from different cultures, and learn to make nourishing meals.

I’ve been a dance artist and teacher for over 25 years. I grew up on the stage, trained in ballet and other western dance arts, and engaged in community musical theater productions. Later, my interest in travel, anthropology, history, and world culture drew me to studying dance from the Near East and later Central Asia. I frequently performed for weddings and other community events and was fortunate to be a part of different cultural rituals and traditions. Like music and dance, food often played a central role in these festivities. It inspired me to start  exploring the culinary arts of Iran and the greater Middle East. 

Hannah’s Professional Dance Biography

I have always cooked for relaxation, enjoyment, and creativity. I relish nourishing people and providing them with delightful culinary experiences.  In 2019, having had a full career as a dance artist, I was contemplating what was next for me. That is when I discovered Saladmaster and learned I could make a career from my passion for food.

Most importantly given our current health and ecological challenges, I can contribute to bettering the planet and empowering people to eat healthier.

Though semi-retired from performing, I still teach dance and find joy and inspiration in combining my passions for the expressive arts, food, history, and culture. If these topics inspire you, please read my posts, attend a dance class as my guest, or consider hosting a Dance & Dish party for your friends.
