Anneliese Rios | Ballet Instructor | Affinity Dance Surrey  

Ballet Instructor

Anneliese Rios is a professional ballet dancer born and raised in Caracas, Venezuela. She began her ballet studies at the age of four on a combination of the Checcheti and Russian techniques and under the tutelage of Nina Novak, Ruta Butviliene and Rumen Ivanov Rashev. At the age of sixteen, Anneliese graduated from Nina Novak's Classical Ballet Academy as a Professional Ballet dancer and joined her hometown ballet company Teresa Carreño Ballet.

During her professional career she had the opportunity to perform nationally and internationally and dance as Corps de ballet and soloist in ballets as: The Nutcracker, Giselle, Paquita, The Swan Lake, Don Quixote, Les Sylphides, and many other contemporary and modern choreographies. In 2013 Anneliese began to combine her dancing with ballet teaching at her academy of origin.

In mid 2014 she moved to BC, Canada where she has been maintaining her training as a dancer while continuing in search of new opportunities to grow as an independent artist, to share her passion for dance, and to improve her skills as a dance teacher. In Canada she has had the opportunity to work with children, teens and adults and share her passion for the dance arts.

Anneliese’s teaching is characterized by her emphasis in proper classical technique, musicality and artistic expression. Anneliese has work and been an invited teacher in various schools and dance centres as The Boswell Academy of Dance, Harbour Dance Centre, Nanaimo Contemporary Ballet, amount others. Currently and since fall of 2016, Anneliese has been working at the Anna Wyman School of Dance Arts as the head of the ballet section of their Professional Training Program. Also, and since September of 2018, Anneliese became part of the Shadbolt Centre for the Arts dance teacher’s team.
