Anne Moore is joining the school community as a performing arts and part-time dance teacher.

“I’m looking forward to working with the amazing dance students at Harvard-Westlake,” said Moore. “My teachers growing up were really inspiring to me, allowing me to explore movement, and then they inspired me to go to college for dance. I always want to inspire and encourage my students to explore movement and to be curious.”

Before becoming a performing arts teacher, Moore earned a BFA at the University of Utah and an MFA from California Institute of the Arts. After earning her degrees, she taught dance at Hastings College, CalArts and the Buckley School. Moore also choreographed Malibu High School’s annual musical for the past five years and plans to continue working with their students on these productions.

One aspect of Moore’s career that she enjoys is choreographing.
“I just find it to be fascinating,” said Moore. “The constant problem solving, it’s like putting a puzzle together.”

Moore said she is looking forward to directing the Upper School Dance Concert and collaborating with the students and production team.
