We all know and love Annie Gratton, not just as a great educator, but also as an incredible energy to be around. Her positivity is infectious, and her dancing makes anyone want to get up and move! But who was a big influence on Annie's upbeat and fun jazz dance style? We had to find out!

Annie: "Honestly this question is super hard for me. Every teacher I have learned from and every dancer I have danced with or been inspired by has influenced my dance style. One person that for sure has inspired me since a young age is Bob Fosse, his work transcends time and I am constantly seeing new details in his work that excites me!"
