At the age of 2, Anna began ballet at Fairytale Ballet before developing her technique at Dance Center Evanston. At age 8, Anna found her second home for the next seven years at Foster Dance Studios. Under the guidance of Sarah Goldstone and Ronn Stewart— who became her life-long mentors—Anna fell in love with the art. Anna’s passion for dance was further nurtured in ballet, with Joffrey’s former ballet mistress Graca Sales, as well as contemporary, modern, jazz and moped. As Ronn Stewart’s creativity widened, Anna became part of his professional dance company, Cocodaco Dance Chicago.
Anna spent her summers training under accomplished dancers at Foster Dance Studios’ summer intensives. She spent a summer at ABT’s summer intensive and studied Balanchine style of dance at the Jillana school in Taos, New Mexico.
Anna is more than thrilled to start this next chapter of her life working with Nick Pupilo and the members of the Visceral Studio Company.
