Before relocating to New York City, she was a jazz instructor at Western Michigan University and director of the dance company at a local studio in Michigan.
More recently, Anna’s passion for body awareness and biomechanics led her to study at the respected Kane School of Core Integration where she is fully certified in mat and equipment Pilates and was a Teacher Trainer for the school. Her training is specialized with information in anatomy, biomechanics, touch therapy, and experience with all populations of people in addition to professional dancers. She has completed multiple continuing education courses including FAMI (Functional Anatomy of Movement and Injury) held at Mt. Sinai through the Icahn School of Medicine, Advanced Biomechanics for movement professionals, and extensive dance training in a wide range of styles.
Experiencing movement with others drives Anna’s passion for both teaching and for learning!
