Instructor

Anne Howard is a unique mover with an extravagant imagination who draws upon eclectic experiences and a diversity of styles. Her journey has fostered a natural proclivity to humor and fun, a core element of her movement aesthetic. Anne loves collaborating and has partnered with organizations to create new original works, such as Maelstrom Collaborative Arts  (Kaguya Kikai) and Spaces Gallery (PLAY!). She has had the pleasure of creating work for Cleveland Public Theatre's Station Hope (Habitsand Ripples) and Pandemonium (Want/Midnight Snack). For Anne, the most memorable performance spaces are adventurous settings like beaches, stairwells, alleyways, and front yards - but also include Cain Park, Playhouse Square, Cleveland's Accidental Comedy Fest, and TrideaDance. Anne danced for Alyssa Lee Wilmot's 'group a dance', apprenticed with Inlet Dance Theatre and Elu Dance Company, and studied mask and clown with Pig Iron Theatre Company. Anne is also a regular puppeteer with the Cleveland Museum of Art's Community Arts Department and teaches outreach programs for Parade the Circle. She teaches dance, conditioning and acrobatics at Dance Lakewood. Anne is an ACE Certified Personal Trainer, Certified Acrobatic Arts Instructor, and Red Cross Adult and Pediatric First Aid/CPR/AED Certified. She lives in Lakewood with her husband Ben and their cat.
