We are happy to introduce Ms. Annie to HSArts and our dance department! She has been working closely with Ms. Dana and Mr. Wei with our ballet program, both full-time and for the Young Artists. We look forward to working with her!
Annie Lester is a Baltimore, Maryland native. After training through her middle and high school years with The Washington School of Ballet, Baltimore School for the Arts, Midatlantic Center for the Performing Arts, Pittsburgh Ballet Theater, and spending summers with American Ballet Theater and Houston Ballet, Ms. Lester relocated to San Francisco in 2021 to pursue her second year with Alonzo King LINES’ training program after completing her first year via Zoom during the pandemic. Due to an injury, she ended her performance career early, but has since been getting in touch with her background in teaching ballet, jazz, modern, and contemporary with various schools in the Midatlantic region, and has just joined the school this January. She is elated to join the accomplished staff and talented students of the HS Arts dance program.
