Anna Rubin - Lead Instructor
 Anna has been dancing, teaching and choreographing her way around Los Angeles for 25+ years! Her training began at her home studio in Westchester, CA under the direction of Cozette Vergari, Sally Critelli and Jill Semke. She broadened her dance education at various studios around the L.A. area, including Edge, Debbie Reynolds and Dupree.
 
For the past 10 years, she owned and operated her own dance studio, Beach Cities Dance. Her BCD Company was honored to travel to Austria to participate in TANZSOMMER, an invitation-only, pre-professional dance concert series for which they’ve been invited back year after year.
 
Anna began teaching at the age of 13 and has, quite literally, never stopped. She has taught thousands of students, many of whom have gone on to professional careers in film, television and stage. A lover of the stage herself, Anna especially loves choreographing full-scale musical productions and has over 75 shows under her belt, her most recent at Orange Coast College where she choreographed SPRING AWAKENING in the spring of 2014.
 
She is no stranger to the stage, either. Anna’s credits include roles in CABARET, CRAZY FOR YOU, MOST HAPPY FELLA, A FUNNY THING HAPPENED...FORUM, YOU’RE A GOOD MAN CHARLIE BROWN, A CHORUS LINE to name a few...as well as countless dance productions here and abroad. For nearly a decade, she was also the emcee for Children Affected by AIDS Foundations, Dream Halloween - where her dance company also had the privilege of performing, year after year.
 
Anna’s classroom teaching style is known to be humorous and encouraging (albeit tough!) and her work is known for its musicality, creative choreography and story-telling. She’ll soon be putting those attributes to the task at Summit View School in North Hollywood where she’ll be Directing and Choreographing their school’s productions as well as teaching elementary music and assisting in the high school classroom.
