Anna Donnelly is a trainee with the Lexington Ballet, and is currently a junior at the University of Cincinnati, College – Conservatory of Music where she is receiving her B.F.A in ballet. She grew up training at the Howard County Ballet, where she performed numerous roles such as Clara, Arabian, and Snow Queen in the Nutcracker. She attended an arts high school, where she was able to study and perform in ballet and modern. She also attended summer intensives, including The Rock School for Dance Education, American Ballet Theatre, Joffrey, and New York Dance Project with whom she trained in Florence, Italy. Anna is excited to teach at FSB, and is feeling inspired as she continues her dance journey.
Kathy Gale received her dance training in Chatsworth, California, studying first with Donald P. Journeaux and later with Sheila Rozann. Her favorite style of dance is ballet, and as a child she was often seen leaping down hallways and using countertops in place of a barre. She was thrilled to get back into dance as an adult when her daughter, Shannon Gale, opened the Frankfort School of Ballet. Kathy began teaching at FSB in 2003, and currently teaches Adult Ballet and Level I Pre-professional Ballet. She is also a company dancer with Gale Force Dance.
She is looking forward to another inspirational year of dance and performance with both new and returning students, and as always, she will be attending FSB's upper level ballet classes because they keep her in great health.
As the owner of the Boogie Boutique, she is happy to help dancers find the dance attire they are looking for and will gladly special order items that are not in stock. The Boutique is open during class hours and by special appointment.
