Following her time at BAE, Annie continued her training with former American Ballet Theater dancers Jessica Saund, Maxim Beloserkovsky and Irina Dovorenko, and Craig Salstein. In addition to her year-round training, Annie has trained at several summer intensives: three consecutive years at American Ballet Theatre in New York City and one year at Julie Kent’s The Washington Ballet. Annie has also received summer acceptances with partial scholarships to the Royal Ballet, Houston Ballet, Boston Ballet, and Ellison Ballet. Most recently, Annie was invited to perform as a guest artist in Philadelphia Ballet’s 2022 spring season productions of Swan Lake and Balanchine Program by artistic director, Angel Corella. This will be Annie’s first year with BalletMet 2, and she is excited to continue her professional career.
