Beginning her dance training at the age of six with
a mixture of jazz, ballet and tap, Anna Andersen
narrowed her focus to classical ballet in 1993 while
studying with Andrea Hill, director of the Ballet
Theatre of Central Pennsylvania. Anna received a
ballet scholarship to Mercyhurst College's Dance
Program in 1997 and chose to minor in dance
while also pursuing a Bachelor of Arts degree in
History. Upon graduation, she moved to Chicago,
where she danced with the Northwest Ballet
Ensemble, performing soloist roles in numerous
ballets including The Nutcracker, Peter Pan, and
Swan Lake .  Anna relocated to the east coast in
March 2003 and she brings more than 18 years of
dance experience to The Ballet Studio.
