Annie grew up dancing in Minnesota, then went on to earn a BFA in Dance from the University of Minnesota in Minneapolis, before moving to London to join Candoco in 2008. In addition to her work with the company, she has performed in works by Bebe Miller, Pat Graney, Michael Sommers, Morgan Thorson and Karen Sherman, among others, and has dabbled in theatre and performance art.
Why dance? Why dance for Candoco?
In a totally geeky way, I love bodies in motion and what they can do-our bodies are really intelligent.  I love to move, and I’m interested in exploring and pushing what my body can do.  And let’s be honest, I’m probably a bit of a show-off!  I was interested in Candoco because I think it’s important to examine and question our ideas about who can be a dancer and what dance is.    I also think it’s important that everyone who wants to dance gets an opportunity to do so.  Creatively, I like seeing what comes out of a group of people with different bodies, ideas, experiences and personalities being thrown together in a studio.  I love idiosyncrasies.  I also wanted to work with a company where I would be challenged as a performer, and where I would get a chance to work with talented choreographers and movers.  I’m interested in working in a setting where dancers are not expendable, where it’s about seeing who’s in the room and utilizing their uniqueness; I like that the work we make is tailored to the performers in the company.  I like that disability can be an advantage.
