Anna Sofia Bridge

director

Anna discovered her love for ballet while growing up dancing in Los Alamos, New Mexico. She received her early training at New Mexico Dance Theater & Performance Company under the artistic direction of Susan Baker-Dillingham. Anna went on to attend the School for Classical & Contemporary Dance at Texas Christian University (TCU), where she graduated summa cum laude with a BFA in ballet and modern dance and a minor in arts administration. While at TCU, Anna received the Nordan Fine Arts Scholarship and the Walt Steimel Dance Scholarship. In 2012, Anna moved to Denver, Colorado, to pursue a professional dance career where she performed with Zikr Dance Ensemble, Dawson|Wallace Dance Project, and BRIAH Danse. She also had the pleasure of being the rehearsal assistant for several seasons to David Taylor, Artistic Director of Zikr Dance Ensemble. Anna has taught various dance styles and choreographed for several schools in Colorado and New Mexico, including A Time to Dance (Monument), Colorado Ballet Academy (Denver), Littleton Dance Academy (Littleton), Metropolitan Academy of Dance (Centennial), Aspen Santa Fe Ballet (Santa Fe), National Dance Institute New Mexico (NDI-NM) Hiland program, and New Mexico Dance Theater (Los Alamos). She is also a BASI Pilates instructor. When Anna moved back to New Mexico in 2018, she became the School Director for the New Mexico Ballet Company. She is thrilled to be directing NMBC’s 2020 production of Alice in Wonderland.
