Tap Director, Tap Director, and Artistic Director.  During her time with EUDT, she was able to choreograph a multitude of Tap pieces and oversee the production of a showcase each semester, from start to finish.  Additionally, Anne was selected to choreograph two Pom routines for Emerson Dance Company (EDC).  Immediately after completing her Bachelors, Anne combined her love of helping others and passion for dance by pursuing her M.A. in Mental Health Counseling and Dance Therapy at Lesley University (2016).  In Spring 2016, Anne applied and was selected as a choreographer for OnStage Dance Company’s first ever Residency program, where she and two other dancers worked to advance their Tap technique and story-telling skills.  Anne also returned to Emerson often to provide guest classes for EUDT members.  For the past two years, Anne developed her career as a therapist while also teaching Tap to recreational students, both kids and adults, at her hometown’s parks and recreation program.  Anne has a passion to help each student grow to their fullest potential and show them variety in Tap dancing.  She is looking forward to connecting with new students here in Southern California.
