Anh Dillon

Joffrey Ballet School

Anh Dillon embarked on her dance journey with a classical ballet foundation at the Conservatoire Niedermeyer in Paris, France. Her pursuit of excellence led her to Brussels, Belgium, where she trained under the tutelage of Nicole Karys, a former dancer with Bejart’s Ballet du XXe Siècle, and Menia Martinez, of the Cuban National Ballet and the Ballet du XXe Siècle. Expanding her horizons, Anh later delved into contemporary dance forms.

Professionally, Anh soared as a principal dancer in both contemporary ballet and contemporary jazz companies, and her versatility enabled her to extensively work in the commercial scene (Usher, Redken, Aveda, and PBS). Notably, she earned a Lester Horton Award for Best Performance and seized the remarkable opportunity to choreograph for the iconic music artist Prince.

Anh’s teaching experience spans over two decades. She currently teaches at the American Ballet Theatre (ABT) Gillespie School in California, has been a regular instructor for the Joffrey Ballet School summer intensives and audition tours since 2013, and travels worldwide for master classes. Her experience and career also led her to co-create and co-direct the online dance hub

Anh is an American Ballet Theatre Certified Teacher, who has successfully completed the ABT Teacher Training Intensive in Primary through Level 7 of the ABT National Training Curriculum.
