Past Cape Girardeau Ballet Partnership: The Dance Center in Cape Girardeau

Nutcracker wouldn’t be Nutcracker without the local Children’s cast! Dancing along side the full professional Russian cast are local Cape Girardeau children from The Dance Center. The Dance Center in Cape Girardeau has two studios, one in Perryville, Missouri and one in Cape Girardeau. Both studios offer dance lessons in Ballet, Pointe, Lyrical, Jazz, Tap, Contemporary, Poms, and Hip Hop.  With over 26 years of dance experience, Artistic Director Anna Marie has always known that she was destined to dance. Anna began her dance training at the age of four and has studied all types of dance, with modern dance being her love. Since the age of sixteen she has enjoyed the wonderful opportunity to teaching dance. Anna has been to numerous workshops to help further her dance education and is currently a dance major at SEMO. She has been a part of UDA (Universal Dance Association) as a high school dance team coach. Spending a summer at University of Missouri Kansas City taking classes with her mentor in modern and ballet only helped her knowledge and love of dance grow. Discipline, fun, and education will be found in all of her classes.
