Having moved to Abu Dhabi from England, Annalise is a student studying engineering at NYUAD. However, her main passion is dancing and has been dancing for as long as she can remember. For over 15 years, she has studied a variety of dance techniques from ballet, jazz and tap, to lyrical, contemporary and national (even taking a few street classes along the way).
She trained under the Imperial Society of Teachers of Dancing syllabus, attaining a level 4 Diploma in Vocational Dance Advanced 2 level in Tap and Modern Theatre and Advanced 1 in Classical Ballet. During her childhood, she regularly participated in competitive dance festivals in numerous categories, as well as performing in both amateur and professional shows, recitals and pantomimes. Annalise also completed her Diploma in Dance Instruction, enabling her to teach and pass on her love for dance to the next generation of dancers. Annalise is looking forward to being a part of Body Tree and teaching alongside her studying.
