Who is a Ballerina in John Wick Universe?

Ballerina will focus on the story of a young assassin who is out to kill the people who killed her family. The character will have a strong connection to the John Wick franchise.  It will expand the storyline of the number of associations who want to wage war on the High Table.  The character was briefly seen in the third part of John Wick, but it was not clear as to what was.

It is still not confirmed that Keanu Reeves would appear in the movie or not. But the character of Houston is most likely to be a part of the movie. Houston was the head of the Ruska Roma, in New York City, who trains orphans as ballet dancers and assassins. She was eventually punished for helping John Wick get a safe out. Many of her men were killed during this and those killed men maybe the people who she wants to avenge.
