It is not only Anneli´s love for her profession, which motivates her to teach, but also her passion to educate and train dancers in a more holistic way.
By integrating her knowledge of the GYROTONIC® method into her classes, she aims to help dancers discover a more fluid and efficient movement quality. Combined with the latest research in Dance Science, Anneli hopes not only to give dancers what they need to perform well artistically, but to support both their physical and psychological well-being.

An interest in how the body works, preventing injuries and teaching technique in a more holistic way was the reason why Anneli chose to study Dance Science. The research being carried out in this area is growing rapidly and therefore conditions are improving for professional dancers and students.
Dance Science includes areas such as injury prevention, anatomy, physiology, nutrition and psychology, and where Sports Science is aimed at athletes, is tailored to the particular needs of dancers. Anneli is qualified to consult dancers in these areas.
In many countries dance scientists are being employed as consultants to major ballet companies.
Anneli carried out research for her MSc investigating the long term effects of a career in classical ballet on the health and well-being of dancers. She was invited to present her research at the 2014 International Conference of Dance Medicine and Science (IADMS).
