Before joining the Emory faculty in 1993, Anna Leo taught at Ohio Wesleyan University and Kenyon College. Prior to receiving her Master of Fine Arts degree at The Ohio State University, she lived in New York City for thirteen years, where she danced with choreographers Sharon Kinney, Kenneth Rinker and Bebe Miller. Her choreography has been produced in New York City, and she has taught and choreographed at colleges and universities in the U.S., and in studios and theaters in Canada and Germany. She has been a National Endowment for the Arts Choreography fellowship recipient, and in 1997 received the Emory College Excellence in Teaching Award. Her dedication to the practice of yoga has taken her to the Ramamani Iyengar Memorial Yoga Institute in Pune, India to further her studies. She incorporates yoga principles into much of her studio teaching. Her current teaching areas include modern and ballet techniques, dance history, solo composition, and a seminar on the history, philosophy and practice of yoga.
