Ana Claudette Groppler began her teaching journey working as a camp counselor at The Dramaworkshop (Doogster Productions), a Musical Theatre summer camp that teaches children Dance, Theatre, and Voice Work. Groppler taught at Pia Bouman’s School of Ballet and Creative Movement for 5 years, teaching Early Dance Ballet, Primary Ballet, Adult Beginner Contemporary Dance, Conditioning, and Theatre Arts, a new program at the school spearheaded by Groppler in 2015. She also teaches Theatre, Creative Movement, and Yoga for kids and other Team Building classes for kids of all ages. A passionate educator, she believes that teaching gives her the opportunity to share a kinesthetic knowledge of the body, and a deep love of dance.

“Moving through life accepting the pains and injuries I had, I finally came to realize I wanted to change that, I didn’t deserve that pain, that pain could be changed. Which meant dedicating myself further, digging deeper into knowledge of functional strength and body mechanics. “ - Ana

“Studying theatre can be a great starting point for careers such as teaching, law, and politics, not to mention broadcasting and performing. And the ability to speak confidently in front of a group is a boon for any career.” - Kimberly Haynes
