Ann's bio

Ann brings to Dannce over 40 years of experience

as a Dancer & Fitness Professional

After  majoring in Theater at Central Michigan University, Ann moved to Chicago & trained as a scholarship student with Gus Giordano.  Then, for the next 12 years, she had the honor of dancing alongside many of Chicago's finest dancers! Equipped with an equally trained singing voice, Ann

performed in many musicals produced by Marriott Lincolnshire,

Candlelight and Drury Lane theaters.

 

Ann also taught jazz and ballroom dance, performed in countless industrials, trade-shows and was a runway model/dancer for the Chicago Apparel Center.

 

Ann worked out of the Evanston Athletic Club for 17 years as a Personal Trainer and Trainer's Mentor.  For the last 25 years has continued to train clients & dancers in her home studio.

 

Nine years ago, after a long hiatus, Ann returned to dance and taught Bemoved® for one year.  Then, inspired by her dancers, Ann created Dannce!™ and we've been learning & growing together ever since!

 

8 years ago, Ann was looking for a better way to help her dancers find their dance core.  As a result, Dannce Body!™ was created

and it was so successful, it has since become an entire program!

 

Ann has been fascinated with the human body her entire life.  As an adult, she became a student of extensive coursework  all relating to anatomy, kinesiology & much more. She received

her training from... The Chicago School of Massage Therapy, National College of Naprapathic Medicine with 1 year of gross anatomy at Rush University, Midwest College of Oriental Medicine

as well as tons of personal training coursework & certifications from AFAA. 

 

Ann is thrilled to present her NEW Dannce!™ Certification Program as building the careers of others is her GREATEST PASSION.
