Under the guidance of Stephen Wadsworth and Mary Birnbaum, Anna is the directing fellow for the Vocal Arts department at Juilliard this year. Anna participates in all daily exercises of the AD class (Acting for the Singing Actor, a post-graduate level course) and gives feedback to each singer as they learn to release their bodies in performance. She also participates in each singer's weekly coaching session with Stephen, developing trusting relationships with each student and establishing a vocabulary for how they interpret their growth as actors. The year has been a hybrid of online and in-person training, and Anna has adapted to the benefits of both.
