Isabella was such a great dancer that when she arrived in New York to compete in the 2001 Youth America Grand Prix Finals she ended up winning a gold medal, her performance got the attention of the Harid Conservatory who gave her a full scholarship, once there she began training with the prestigious Mark Godden.
Two years later, because of her excellence in dancing, she received the Reuger Scholarship and the following year in 2005 she joined the American Ballet Theatre also known as ABT or ABT II, when she was just 19 years old she made her solo debut on May, 2006 and a year after that she joined the corps de ballet. In 2008 she was in Baryshnikov’s 37 Arts Studios where she met Benjamin, who was also the choreographer.

As for her romantic life the Observer reported last year that Isabella was referred to as the famous dancer’s girlfriend, during that time he was already choreographing in the Black Swan, a version that is changed by OK Magazine who said that Isabella and her beau split up before he began working in Black Swan, either way they were living together at his East Village apartment, they traveled to France and the Caribbean as a happy couple. The news about her ex getting married and becoming a father pretty soon is said to have left Isabella devastated.
