Anna moved to the United States with her parents when she was 17 years old. Both her mother and father were professional ballroom dancers, and her mother still makes her costumes today.
Anna and her dance partner Jonathan train six days per week, including dance practice, Pilates, ballet, yoga and gym work in their training. DANCING:
Anna is fully trained in Ballroom dancing as well as Latin and was the USA Amateur Youth Standard (Ballroom) Champion in 1998.
