Born in 1985, Ilka Groenewold is an East Frisian whose dancing talent showed up as early as age 3. Her hip-hop, video clip-dancing, and jazz moves meant she became a teacher of the same until 2005. But perhaps what prompted Ilka to pursue a stage career was her appearance on VIVA TV channel's ''McClip Show'' in 2021 as a moderator, a responsibility she performed exceptionally well, given that she was only 16 at the time. She would then attend classes covering castings, piano, vocals, dancing, and many more.
