Anna grew up in Minnesota, and started her dance training with hip hop and street styles. After taking her first modern dance class at the age of 12, she fell in love and began to explore the world of classical dance, which she studied throughout high school and college. Anna currently trains in many various dance styles, and her personal work is heavily influenced by dance theatre and her background in hip hop. She has also danced works by a diverse range of choreographers, including Ronald K. Brown, Uri Sands, Catherine Cabeen, Morgan Bobrow-Williams, and Gabe Katz. Graduated from Marymount Manhattan College with her BFA in modern dance, Anna currently dances with Rovaco Dance Company, seymour::dancecollective, and Mobilized Voices/M O B I V, in addition to creating work as a freelance artist and teaching movement classes of all types. She also works as a physical therapy trainer and is a practitioner of Thai Bodywork. 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.
I work in the realm of the body. On my journey I seek to observe, explore, expand, change, and share this realm. With dance as my main language, I also seek to communicate and collaborate with artists in other realms.
Always playing. Always learning. Always listening.
