From the moment Annie Machamer first slipped into her ballet shoes, she was destined to become a dancer. Born into a family of dancers, her love for the art first started at the age of three. As Annie grew, so too did her love for dance and physical activity. She helped secure funding for her high school hip-hop team that was once in danger of being erased completely; and it was from that point on that Annie found her calling. She decided to study Physical Education Teacher Education as an undergraduate student and do her part to keep dance education in schools.
