She has been back at Miller Marley since 2000 teaching tap and jazz. Ann is currently the Director for the Miller-Marley Entertainers.
Her choreography has been featured by eight different groups at Disney World in Orlando, Florida, the General Foods "KOOL-AID" National Dance Team, Walt Disney's 100th Celebration, and the USA pavilion as part of the World's Fair in Seville, Spain.
Ann is a graduate of the University of Kansas where she founded and coached the KU Crimson Girls Dance Squad (now known as the Rock Chalk Dancers) for five years.

Shirley Marley has been in Ann's life since the age of five. She is grateful for the training, guidance, love, support and generosity Shirley has given her. Ann hopes to pass this along to her students.
