Anna grew up in Barcelona where her dance training began at Institut del Teatre professional conservatoire, studying Classical and Contemporary Dance. She moved to Leeds to continue her dance training at the Northern School of Contemporary Dance, graduating with a First Class Degree.
Together with Charlotte Arnold, Anna co-directs the dance theatre duo ACCA and co-edits the online publication Artychoke Zine. In parallel to her performance commitments, she has been developing a solid teaching practice and has facilitated sessions for TripSpace, ProDanceLeeds, NSCD and Leeds University Union amongst others. In addition to Ballet and Contemporary dance, Anna has recently gained her Pilates Mat Training; a technique that has proved very useful for her dance practice.
Ballet has always been a central part of her training and she is very excited to be working with the students at DSL.
