b. 1996 (chicago, illinois)
Raised in Minnesota, Anna worked as a dance artist and educator in New York City for nearly a decade. In 2022, she landed back in the Twin Cities once again to pursue the next season of her creative work.
Anna’s most recent performance work includes Ashwini Ramaswamy’s Invisible Cities, TU Dance Company’s The Three Women Project, and projects with Joe Chvala’s Flying Foot Forum, Rovaco Dance Company, and the Des Moines Metro Opera. 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.
Anna’s current choreographic creations explore the creation of imagery and architecture through transposing rhythm and other musical languages onto the body, with her most recent work Anthem for You and I premiering at the Southern Theater. The work was also chosen to be presented at the Walker Art Center’s 2023 Choreographer’s Evening, curated by Darrius Strong.
Her work as an educator has included Dance Theatre of Harlem, The Neighborhood Playhouse, Daya Yoga Studio, the NYC Public School System, Zenon Dance School, Hothouse Minneapolis, and the TU Dance Center, among others. Anna also practices Thai Bodywork, and is studying for her MS in Human Movement Science. Her passion for bodily education spills into both her teaching and artistic work.
