About The Instructor:

Anna Cerveny grew up training at the Royal School of Ballet, and had the honor of attending summer intensives at Bengbu Ballet, BalletMet, and Nutmeg Conservatory for the Arts. She received her BS in Chemistry from Carnegie Mellon University, and her Doctor of Physical Therapy from Columbia University with a focus on Performing Arts Rehabilitation. During her 7 years of school, she spent much of her time dancing, choreographing, and directing her universities' respective dance organizations and taking dance classes at Pittsburgh Ballet Theater and Broadway Dance Center. After graduating in 2013, Anna spent a year traveling the US, Canada, and Japan as the physical therapist for the Tony- winning Broadway play, "WarHorse", and taking dance classes around the world.

Currently, she works at University Hospitals as a Clinical Specialist in Dance Rehabilitation and the founder of UH's Dance Rehab program, where she works with dancers from around the area, including Cleveland Ballet. In 2017, Anna founded Cleveland Dance Project (CDP), the area's largest all adult dance studio. In 2019, the dance & wellness professional company, CDP Company, organically came to be to fill a community need for health education fused with movement, and dancer injury prevention services. Anna continues to train, choreograph, and perform with both CDP and CDP Company and loves to help dancers of all ages keep their bodies as healthy and pain-free as possible to keep them dancing for life.
