Annie Conway

Annie Conway grew up just outside of Milwaukee, receiving her early training from Accent on Dance Studios in Waukesha, Wisconsin. She later went on to study at Southern Methodist University in Dallas where she performed works by Billy Siegenfeld, Agnes DeMille (set by Gemze De Lappe) and Larry White of the Martha Graham Dance Company, ultimately earning her BFA in Dance Performance with highest honors. Upon moving to Chicago, she apprenticed with River North Chicago Dance Company and performed with Thodos Dance Chicago New Dances. In 2003, her childhood dream of opening a performing arts school became a reality when she and her two sisters co-founded Virtuoso Performing Arts (VPA) – a studio offering training in Acting, Dance, Music and Tumbling to students in the northwest suburbs of Chicago. Throughout VPA’s 15 year existence, choreography grew to be one of Annie’s greatest passions. She is thrilled to present work for a second season with Still Inspired(?). 
Annie marvels at the abundance of joy dance has brought into her life and is always eager to share it with the young people of this community – most notably, her three young daughters.
