She pursued her pedagogy training at The National Arts Academy of Oslo from 2010 to 2011 and obtained a Mentoring certificate from The Norwegian Academy of Music from 2020 to 2021. 

Since 2001 Annette has been working with, about, through and around dance. Dancing, exploring, researching, developing, reflecting and questioning.

Why dance?

Annette sees dance as something fundamental to being human. Her approach to dance is intricately linked to the mobility of the human body and the exploration of movement possibilities from within. She is intrigued by work that allows for time to create, explore, investigate, communicate, process, and produce. Annette finds profound beauty in powerful movement, bold expression, chaos, simplicity, and how we utilize the space around us, all while maintaining great attention to detail and presence in the moment.
