She went on to attend The American Academy of Dramatic Arts, NYC. She says, “I have had incredible experiences and opportunities, over the years. Such amazing teachers pushed me and inspired me to perform and dance with my whole-being…and later, to teach.” She loves teaching and inspiring young artists to dance with fervor. Anna has worked and toured internationally with a variety of dance & musical theater projects and absolutely loved working with dancers and artists from all over the world!
