Anne uses skating and dance classes as integral tools to empower individuals to reach their highest potential on and off the ice. Through safe technique, humor, and exploration, Anne seeks to instill in her students the values of persistence, patience, and sportsmanship, imparting the importance of manageable goal setting, accountability, and optimistic thinking. No matter the students’ goals, they learn to have healthy relationships with success and failure, build relationships with their peers, and celebrate their individuality and improvements on a daily and long-term basis.
