Anna is one of the North’s leading female choreographers for professional theatre work - below are the most recent professional productions made for Hype Dance Company.
Savage Beauty is an outdoor performance produced by Hype Dance Company in collaboration with Ingle Gym and Spin Arts.
Inspired by the lives of world champion boxers, professional dancers and boxers meet in the ring to fuse Ingle Gym’s footwork patterns with contemporary hip-hop dance theatre. Through high-energy and hard-hitting movement combined with the melodic rhythm of fists connecting with leather, the show exposes the guidance, influences and stories from Ingle Gym.
With moving voiceover from world renowned trainer, Bendan Ingle, the work hits you where you least expect it.
FANTASTIC performance! Great to see the sport of boxing transformed into the art of dance
Brendan Ingle, MBE
Really strange, yet interesting, thought-provoking and moving piece of theatre.

Dali's Guest is an engaging collaboration of real life stories, dance, music and visual art inspired by the effects of Cancer on the body and Surrealist visual art.
In 2015 Hype Dance Professional received funding from Arts Council England to support 3 weeks of research and development for a new surreal Cabaret show.
Working alongside visual artists, dancers and choreographers the team explored ideas and issues that are close to Rachel Guest, an artist, ex-dancer and Cancer patient. The show will go into full production in 2017.
A commission from Festival of The Mind, Sheffield, to create a piece of dance theatre based on research findings from Sheffield Institute for Translational Neuroscience (SITraN) on Alzheimer’s disease.
The research from SiTran has been used as stimulus to create something that aims to physicalise some areas of the research, and present them in an abstract, inspiring, engaging way.
Anna also works in the commercial sector choreographing for fashion shows, trade events and within dance schools and colleges.
Choreographing anything is always inspiring. If it's a commission, or making my own theatrical work, realising a vision is a really exciting process to be part of.
