Ann Marie Frank, Dance Instructor
Ann Marie Frank is thrilled to be teaching dance at the Niles AMT Center! She has been teaching at the Arlington Heights location since 1998! Miss Ann Marie has been teaching dance for over 25 years in the Northwest Chicago suburbs, and is well known for her energetic style, original choreography and contagious excitement in the classroom! Having studied music and primary education at Northeastern University, Ms. Frank also studied trombone and piano privately for over 12 years. She studied dance at Lou Conteís Dance Studio in Chicago, home of the Hubbard Street Dancers. Ms. Frank has traveled to Los Angeles, Scottsdale, New York, Orlando, Boston and Vancouver to learn from the best dance masters in the industry.
Passionate about the performing arts, Ann Marie opened "AMA Dancers & Co." in Des Plaines, which offers dance, tumbling, drama, voice, piano and guitar lessons. Ann Marie is living her dream of creating a performing arts school where children and adults can come together to share their love of the arts!
Planting flowers in her front yard every summer and traveling to warm climates are some of the things Ann Marie loves to do outside of teaching dance. She also loves to play Scrabble with her three teenagers and attends every Broadway musical possible with them!
Ann Marie would like to invite AMT parents to come in any Wednesday to observe their child's dance class. You will love it!!
