Maan Ilustre has always been dancing ever since she was a little girl. She was forced to put her love for dance in the back seat to focus on her studies and consequently, her career after college.
She had the opportunity to take up her first love as a form of fitness. In 2013, after her resignation from the company she ran for 13 years, she decided to take a break and took ballet, jazz, contemporary ballet and pole dance. Soon there after she developed an undying love for aerial arts having enjoyed pole dance and aerial hoops. In 2016 she took the XPert Certification to teach Spinny pole and aerial hoops.
Today, she enjoys balancing her work, her passion for writing as editor in chief of juan.com.ph, and aerial and exotic dance to feed her soul.
