b. 1996 (chicago, illinois)
Raised in the Twin Cities, Anna has lived in New York City for the past 10 years working as a dance artist and educator. In the summer of 2022 she moved back to Minnesota once again to pursue the next season of her creative work.
In MN she dances with Alternative Motion Project, and is a collaborator for the trio of Ashwini Ramaswamy, Alanna Morris, and Berit Ahlgren. She also continues to work with the NYC-based Rovaco Dance Company. Her current personal work explores the repetitive translation and transmutation of our universe’s intrinsic languages.
Her work as an educator includes Dance Theatre of Harlem, The Neighborhood Playhouse School, Daya Yoga Studio, and the NYC Public School System, among others. In Minnesota she adds Zenon Dance School, Hothouse Minneapolis, and TU Dance to the list.
In addition, Anna practices Thai bodywork, and has worked as a Physical Therapy Aide for the past 3 years. Her passion for bodily education spills into both her teaching and artistic work.
Her powerful energy is unique in its ability to quickly morph from style to style, all while maintaining a supple articulation and water-like quality.
