Ballet, Contemporary Dance, Dance Theory and Composition

Ballet and Contemporary Dance are both classical and ever-changing, and reflective of today's momentum. As I have studied a wide range of dance styles and techniques, I hold vast experience in how one wants to devise their movement practice and understand the creative developments within dance history and theory.

This class can be movement-based or discussion-based, and will be driven by the uses of breath and imagination to explore the limits of curiosity and physicality.

About Me

From the United States to Europe, I have taught a range of students from all over. I have worked in formal classroom and studio set-ups along with community-led organizations and online private tutoring. I love being able to share my experience and practices with my students, and I love even more being able to have the opportunity to learn from my students.

Ann, was great! Very soft spoken, very knowledgeable, my daughter loved her ballet lesson with Ann. We will continue to have lessons with her. Due to COVID this is the best option for us and it seems to work.
Ann was amazing and great fun in teaching us a dance in the lead up to our wedding. We’re looking forward to more lessons and improving on the foundation we’ve built.
Friendly and knows what she is doing.
I liked a lot the course given by Ann, she is an amazing teacher and I liked so much working with her.

Dance & Healing | The Transcendental Embodiment - Behind & Beyond
Are you seeking life guidance through art, movement, and dance for emotional, psychological, and physical well-being? Welcome to the Transcendental Embodiment. I am here to support and guide you in your own process of discovering your inner healing power through: - chakras alignment, guided meditation, breathing exercises - self-expression & subjective experience through dance - expanding your heart space, emotional awareness, and healing in movement and dance - release of stress, judgment, and trapped emotions - grounding, self-care, resilience - and more... The sessions are tailored to the specific needs and capabilities of each individual. *Dance can be a practice of introspection, transformation, and transcendence of one’s subjective experiences into a worldwide journey." - Tiffany Mc Swaker * As a professional dancer, teacher, and performance maker I am introspectively processing each working day in consciousness, listening to my upcoming emotions, triggers, or anxiety when it comes to be physically and mentally performative in a team, or as a freelance artist. Instead of suppressing these emotions and creating energetical and mental blockages (that can end up into somatic pains or burn-out): we should pay more attention to these inner warning messages and strengthen our emotional intelligence to be able to cope with the infinitesimal external stimulus and daily-stress of our very fast lives. It can be challenging to sense with clarity what is the origin of some feelings of frustration, unsatisfaction, discomfort, or grief, and it can be intimidating or discouraging to walk alone on that path. This class helps you to commit to your better-being, presence to oneself countering wellness procrastination. * What do you need to feel lighter, brighter, or happier in your everyday life? * * What is your self-achievement potentiality? * - For who? : For anyone who enjoys movement and dance, and desires a better connection and understanding with their moving bodies. / ​One-to-one or group sessions. - ​Where? : Online via SKYPE or at the student's location. Values: Integrity, Transparency, Respect, Cooperation * About TTE : The Transcendental Embodiment (TTE) is the result of three years of research and development. Merging from a movement philosophy research entitled Behind & Beyond, to its phenomenological understanding. The metaphysical unity of the tangible and intangibles bodies expounds the undeniable relationships between those in the physical realm. The tangible body (the material vehicle), the intangibles bodies (psychological, emotional, energetical, and spiritual). As a dance healing practice, guiding the practitioner to conscious corporeality, and subjective emotional understanding, this methodology can also be a useful tool to improve artistry and technical skills on a deeper level, widening mindful creativity, awareness, empathy, and sensitivity. (TTE) movement and dance methodology combines a meditative approach in stillness and through movement, awakening the mind, spreading the awareness into different body parts; put a specific emphasis on improvisation skills, and musicality, following energy impulses and intuitive movement, increasing the flow of energy. Inviting the practitioners to practice resilience, non-self definition, non-judgment, self-care and self-love, integrity, and acceptance to overcome technical, physical, and mental limits holding the practitioner from his self-achievement potentiality. This approach builds itself crescendo on subjective movement reflexivity and introspective journey through the following process: ​ * The four steps: Being | Investigation | Exploration | Dedication Unconscious - Subconscious - Conscious - Transcendental Consciousness Feel free to contact me for any inquiries.

Intuitive Movement and Ecstatic Dance to Connect, Heal + Release
"Dance first, think later. That is the natural order" Dancing is a fun, explorative art form and can be a nice change to your traditoonal workout. Our bodies are capable of holding traumas, negative energies which can lead to further physical pain and imbalances. Intuitive movement is a deeply healing to release any blockages, negative energies and find confidence with this amazing vessel of yours. We will begin with a slow warmup and practice some contemporary dance moves + freestyle to activate that free-flowing connection to your body. I will create a personalized playlist for our session that we will do a short flow and end with a freestyle dance. You will be in a safe, judgement free space to explore and enjoy yourself.

Tango Argentino - private and group classes in Austria or online

Hula Hoop group course for beginners and advanced
Small group course for beginners with previous experience and advanced! A maximum of 4 students take part. This hula hoop course only takes place on Mondays from 6 p.m. to 7 p.m. - if you don't have time, please contact us anyway and if there are enough inquiries, a second course can be arranged on a different date. Attention: only until sport can take place again! I therefore cannot recommend the 10-hour package - unfortunately, the decisions on measures cannot be foreseen that far. Hula Hoop is not only a children's toy, it is especially suitable for adults! It's a gentle creative workout. The focus is on creativity, tricks and dancing in such a way that the side effects - increasing flexibility and body definition - are only noticed afterwards. You don't even know what you can do with hula hoops? Incredibly much! From rolls, wedgies, wraps, escalators to isolations, throws, foot-hooping, acrobatics to doubles, multihooping and native american hoopdance, I can teach you everything possible and impossible ;-)

Bollywood and Bharatanatyam dance class in London (group and private)
Bharatnatyam is structured according to the examinations conducted by the University. It typically takes about 6-7 years to complete the examinations. You can learn it for fun as well without actually wanting to go through exams. It has immense health benefits and good cardio workout. Bollywood, on the other hand, is energetic and fun-filled and can be learnt one song at a time. I usually assess the ability of the student to grasp the movements and teach accordingly. It can take anywhere between 2 weeks to 4 months to learn a complete Bollywood dance item.

Roller Skate Dance with roller quads (roller skate)
The practice of Roller Dance is a completely independent street art with very few rules. If you are a lover of "quads" (roller skates) that you dream of sliding on the asphalt with your hair blowing in the wind and that you like old school culture, you've come to the right place;) I suggest for beginners (first time or not yet comfortable) to gain confidence on roller skates thanks to balance exercises as well as basic steps and tips to safely learn the basics of Roller Dance. For the intermediate level (you hold on well on your skates) I suggest learning the most emblematic steps of this discipline, which have made the reputation of Roller Dance all over the world, you will be able to do sequences yourself and why not improvise in the evening. For the advanced level (you already know how to dance on roller skates) I suggest that you make your movements more fluid by correcting the posture and by incorporating the arms, to take steps at a higher level, but also to help you create your own "routine" (small loop representing your signature)

Ballet is a wonderful art form that teaches you discipline and persistence. I have been dancing for 15+ years. I trained with a Cuban ballet professor for over 10 years following the Cuban Ballet Methodology. I was a YoungArts finalist in 2013 and I have had professional experience in many companies, schools, and gala performances throughout the country. I love to share my knowledge of dance and artists' skills with children ages 3-15. I share my tips, technique and artistic opinions with my students while making the class inspiring and fun.
