Ann hails from Montreal where she honed her skills as a dance teacher after falling madly in love with Lindy Hop in 2002. Known for her playful style and the joy that she exudes while dancing, she travels as often as she can to share her love of the dance in competitions, performances, classes, and on the social dance floor.
While keeping an eye on the basics, she likes to teach moves and ideas that inspire her students to stretch their dancing in new directions. She also likes to come up with ridiculous imagery for said moves. She is committed to preserving the improvisational link between lindy hop and jazz, empowering followers, and celebrating the cultural wealth of vernacular jazz dances.
