Miss Annie has been performing for as long as she can remember. Her parents said from a very young age she would sing songs from her cot to wake up everyone in the house!
She started dancing at the age of 3 when she joined a Ukrainian Dance school in Manchester. She performed in shows and festivals across the UK for 15 years with dance groups Podilya and Orlyk, showcasing the vibrant and colourful Ukrainian dance style.
Her first experience of performing in Musicals was at age 11 when she joined Heywood Amateur Operatic and Dramatic Society. She's been in shows such as Bugsy Malone, 42nd Street and Fame as well as taking the lead roles in Hello Dolly and Brigadoon. Her portrayal of Dolly Levi earned her a Certificate of Promise from the Greater Manchester Drama Federation.
Miss Annie has an A Level in Performing arts, an Intermediate certificate in Modern Jazz and has more recently achieved a Diploma in Musical Theatre with the IDTA. She's been teaching babyballet in Oldham, Saddleworth and Middleton since 2017 and now also teaches Musical Theatre here with us.
Miss Annie says 'I love my job! I'm so lucky that I get to teach all of the amazing Musical Theatre stars at Theatre Dance Academy. Watching them grow in confidence and achieve their goals is so special! I cannot WAIT to see where their performing journey takes them all.'
