Annalia grew up performing as an actress, singer and dancer in Los Angeles, CA. She trained under infamous choreographers and was immersed in the entertainment industry from a young age. She had amazing performance opportunities, like dancing for Nigel Lythgoe (producer of SYTYCD) at several charity events, performing in a Nickelodeon movie with Justin Bieber as a dancer, singing at the House of Blues, dancing in Choreographer's Ball Carnival and was a background dancer for up and coming LA Pop Artists.
She later attended Belmont University in Nashville, TN and earned a Bachelor's Degree in Entertainment Industry Studies with a minor in Music Business, all while working full time teaching competitive dance teams. She is currently pursuing a career in pop music herself, but will always remain in the dance studio, as it is her first love. After all her years of training and performing, she discovered her love for teaching. Seeing children improve under her instruction is very rewarding to her! She also loves getting to be a role model for her students and somebody they can come to with anything. Dance taught her so many life lessons and she sees it as a blessing to get to pass those along to her students as a teacher.
