Annie has a Ballet Studio Teaching Certificate from the University of Utah. She has experience teaching all ages--from two year olds to adults--in ballet, jazz, contemporary, and creative movement. Annie has been teaching for seven years. She feels that students learn best in an open environment that fosters critical thinking and life skills. It is equally important to teach organic and ergonomically sound technique. Annie strives to be a role model for her students, to keep them injury-free, and to encourage individuality. Annie teaches ballet technique based off of the SuganoSystem methodology.
Annie currently teaches Young Movers for The School at Peridance at Peridance Capezio Center; and at The Studio in Mineola, where she teaches ballet and contemporary in addition to choreographing contemporary pieces for competition. Additionally, she is an Audition Assistant and Introduction to Ballet Program Assistant with Ballet Tech.
