Anna Buxton's love for dance began when she was a just little girl and took her first ballet class at the age of 3. She has continued her study and love of ballet and dance throughout her entire life.
She spent many happy times as a child in the studio and was always found dancing around the house. School days Anna gathered her friends at recess and taught them her self choreographed dances to be performed for their classmates.
Anna was Major of her high school dance team in Austin, TX. She co-choreographed the team's award winning competition routines as well as dances for the annual Spring Shows.
Entering college, she joined the prestigious Kilgore College Rangerettes in
East Texas. The Rangerettes are the first dancing drill team in the United States, created in 1940, known for their high-kick lines and jump splits. They perform at many large, time-honored events throughout the country, such as the
Macy’s Day Parade, the Cotton Bowl, and numerous political galas. The Rangerettes are revered throughout Texas, and their long-standing traditions continue today.
She spent her summers choreographing and teaching for Star Makers dance and performance camps for high school cheer/dance teams across Texas.
When Anna moved to San Francisco in 2006, she continued dancing and performed with multiple dance groups including Strong Pulse Hip-Hop crew, Within the Spiral, and Launa's Dance Company.
In 2009 she auditioned and was selected as an Oakland Raiders Cheerleader for four consecutive seasons. Her honors while with the Raiderettes included Rookie of the Year in 2009, Wanettea Horton Award (Most Inspirational Raiderette) in 2010, Raiderette Captain in 2011, and Raiderette of the Year in 2011. Anna was selected by her teammates/friends as the one cheerleader to represent the Raiderettes at the Pro Bowl in Hawaii in 2012.
Anna has been teaching and choreographing for children all over the Bay Area for over 10 years. She absolutely loves sharing her passion for dance!
