ANITA Abbaraju

Ep 1: The Pointing Exercise  

Anita is a performing artist and student at Bergen County Academies. She has studied dance (ballet, jazz, musical theatre jazz, hip hop, pointe, tap, contemp/lyrical) since 2008 and has since performed in many competitions. Aside from dancing, she also plays the guitar and enjoys singing. She had so much fun working on Coaching Shakespeare because it  really pushed her out of her comfort zone as both an actor and an individual. All throughout COVID she has been especially thankful to have supportive teachers and peers who have encouraged exploration. They have taught her that making mistakes and exploring the “unknown” is part of the process.
