Meet Miss Anneliese...
My name is Anneliese Bull. I’m an Open Champion Irish Dancer and I am the newest dance instructor at Tu Left Feet. My love for Irish dance began when I was 4 years old and saw Riverdance for the first time. I fell in love with the foot work and beautiful melodies. I remember telling my mom that I wanted to learn how to do that one day. At age 5 I took my first Irish Dance classes and ever since then it has been my heart and soul. I started dancing at age 3 and trained in Ballet, Tap, Jazz, Irish Dance, Scottish Dance, Modern, Point, Lyrical and HipHop. I’ve been dancing for 20 years now and have danced with Barton & Willams School of Dance, Studio 17, McGrath School of Irish Dance, Fredericksburg Ballet Center, Danny Tighe School of Irish Dance, Dance and Gym Expressions, Amy Clae and Muggivan School of Irish Dance. I was in the Irish dance company throughout my childhood and competed in various championships across the country and even in Ireland. I was on Varsity Dance Team throughout high school and was also on VCU’s Gold Rush Dance Team. I took a few dance classes while in college and taught dance under Amy Habel and Joni Muggivan. Dancing has always been a passion of mine since I can remember and I would love to have the opportunity to teach and share with you the beauty of Irish Dancing!
