Anna’s performing career spans for 14 years which has taken her across the world like Tap Dancing in India for BMW, running away with the circus for Ringling Brothers & Barnum and Bailey in the USA & sharing the stage with Jessica Mauboy in Glasgow Scotland for the 2014 Commonwealth Games Closing Ceremony, Dancing CEO’s Brisbane’s biggest Fundraising event to help Women & Children suffering from domestic & family violence, rocking out onstage with the ’Babes of Rock’ in SE QLD & falling in love with comedy whilst performing ‘Birds of Paradise’ a Comedy Bird-lesque extravaganza.
