Ann brings to Dannce Body™ over 40 years of experience
as a Dancer and 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 & Drury Lane theaters.
Ann also taught jazz and ballroom dance, performed in countless
industrials, tradeshows & was a runway model &/or dancer for
the Chicago Apparel Center.
Ann worked out of the Evanston Athletic Club for 17 years as a
Personal Trainer & Trainer's Mentor and for the last 23 years has continued to train clients & dancers in her home studio.
Nine years ago, after a long hiatus, Ann returned to dance & taught Bemoved® for one year. Then, inspired by her dancers, Ann created Dannce Body™ Dance Class and we've been learning & growing together ever since!
A few years ago, Ann was looking for a better way to help her dancers find their dance core. From there Dannce Body™ Workout was born & 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 Body™ Certificate Program as building the careers of others is her greatest passion.
