A native of Fort Wayne, Indiana, Anna received her B.A. in Ballet from Point Park University. Anna began her dance training in 1994 at the Tiffany & Co. Studio of Dance and is a graduate of the New American Youth Ballet & Conservatory (NAYB). While pursuing her B.A., Anna lived in Paris, France, where she studied under Wayne Byars and Gregory Cianci at Studio Harmonic. She has also trained with several companies and conservatories across the U.S., including the Ballet Intensive from Moscow near Chicago, Illinois. Anna has served as a rehearsal assistant for Nicolas Petrov's ballet, Carmen, an instructor at Tripp Lake Camp, the ballet director at Inspirations Dance Studio, and is currently on the artistic staff of the Bartlesville Civic Ballet. Now, she is eager to share her expertise, experience, and passion for dance with CMT’s Stage School students.
An alumnus of Benedictine College, Alex holds a Bachelor of Music Education degree (BME). From Oklahoma City to Bartlesville, Alex has taught music in public schools all across Oklahoma. He is certified in all three levels of Kodaly training and has offered private lessons in trumpet, piano, and voice. Alex believes that, "music education for a young person is important, especially in this day in age, because it promotes growth in areas such as math, reading, social interaction, and it enriches the soul." He is looking forward to being a part of CMT’s Stage School and introducing each student to the wonders of music.
A native Arkansan and proud Tulsan, Jessica Allis holds a BFA in Theatre from the University of Central Arkansas. Known as “Allis” to her friends and loved ones, she has since been featured in The Reverb Theater Dangerous Plays festival and has continued her education in filmmaking by producing three short films. Committed to her craft, Allis is enthusiastic about training and mentoring the next generation of theatre artists and has led several theatre workshops for students in middle school, high school, and college. Currently, Allis is the Bartlesville High School Drama Teacher and is thrilled to have the opportunity to work with and grow more young actors as a part of CMT’s Stage School.
