Anneliese Gadell is super excited to be back at DAL after taking a few years off for her full time job. A Central New Jersey native, Anneliese began dancing at the age of 6. As a tomboy, she cried at the thought of having to wear a tutu or anything pink! As the age of 8, she began dancing and modeling competitively, earning top honors in both solo and group dances in various regional and national competitions.
Anneliese began student teaching at the age of 12 and teaching at the age of 16. She chose to continue on the teaching path rather than performing. Throughout her past 25 years of teaching, she has choreographed numerous award-winning routings for dances in both New Jersey and Northern Virginia. As a graduate of Marymount University with a degree in Health Fitness Management / Health and Human Performance, Anneliese has worked in both the fitness industry and the education field, yet she has never stopped teaching dance!
Anneliese is very proud and humbled to have been nominated for Best of Loudoun multiple years in a row. She loves teaching all forms of dance for all ages from 2 years through adult and cannot wait to meet her new students!
