Meet Ms. Anne Marie 

Anne Marie Loesch grew up in Charlotte, North Carolina.  There her first job was as an assistant at the local dance studio. Ever since, Anne Marie has been teaching and sharing her love for dance.  She began studying Humphrey-Weidman's modern dance technique under Mary Ann Mee, dancer and demonstrator for Charles Weidman. Katharyn Horne provided her with a solid ballet background in Cecchetti Ballet. It was under these two talented women that she began her professional dance career with Dance Central, Kinetyx Dance Ensemble, and Moving Poets Theatre of Dance.  Since settling in Chicago she has performed with MOMENTA, Joel Hall Dancers, Paul Sanasardo, Zephyr Dance, and various independent artists.  Ms. Loesch has also served as the Ballet Mistress for the Joel Hall Second Company and Noumenon Dance Ensemble.  It is with great joy that Anne Marie joins the faculty of Dance Avondale.
