Annetta is a graduate of Rutgers University and American University where she earned her Bachelor degree in English and Communications and her Master’s in Performing Arts for Dance & Theatre, respectively.

She is honored to foster self-expression and self-worth with students through poetry, performance, dance, yoga, and visual arts. She has also worked for Arts for the Aging, teaching healing movement, healing stories, theatre improvisation and visual arts. Annetta feels that her well-rounded experience and understanding of the arts as a healing tool aligns well with ArtStream’s varied programming, including its military hospital program, Allies in the Arts.

She is also a member of the MCPS Teaching Artist Roster through the Arts and Humanities Council of Montgomery County and she teaches for The Folger Library’s Secondary Shakespeare Festival bringing The Bard to DC public schools. In addition to her artistic work with children, Annetta is also on the Fine Arts faculty at Trinity University and works locally in the DC region as a freelance performing artist.

Annetta is Director/Choreographer for the MD Cabaret, she teaches Practicing Performance, works with the Jewish Foundation for Group Homes, co-teaches Theater Arts classes at The Katherine Thomas School, and gives Drama & Story-Telling classes at the DC JCC.

Annetta believes strongly in arts integration and mixed-ability integration. She is proud to work with the unique, progressively productive theatre, and exceptional organization that is ArtStream.
