Having grown up in a family of musicians and artists, Anna’s own love of music and movement quickly developed into an extensive passion for swing dance and authentic jazz. Understanding movement and expression is a key influence for Anna, and is joyfully embodied in both her teaching and performance style.
Anna has taken her obsession for jazz dance around the world and has taught in Australia, Belgium, Norway, Switzerland, the Netherlands, Greece and the UK; as well as picking up a few competition trophies in Sweden, France, Spain and Poland. Anna currently studies the roots of jazz movement, including tap dance, Ghanaian dance, and early swing.
Back in Melbourne, Anna teaches weekly classes for dancers of all levels, as well as leading Hot Jam – a talented dance troupe devoted to creative performance. In class she is passionate about sharing authentic body movement and rhythm with her students, and seeks to build a positive and empowering environment for people to explore the dance.
