Anne Wilby

Physiotherapist

Anne began dance like many, from a young age at her local dancing school in South-end-on-Sea in the UK. Her mentor, Angela Allport,  saw her through exams and competitions up to the age of 18, where she won awards for choreography, ballet and tap through the Imperial Society of Dance.

Anne went on to attend Masters Performing Arts College for a 3 year vocational diploma, where she obtained teaching certificates with Honours. She was then offered a scholarship position at the London Contemporary Dance School under the directorship of Richard Alston and upon graduation was invited work with the Siobhan Davies Dance Company. She worked for Oblique Dance Company and Jazz Exchange and formed her own small company in 2005 called Company 44. They toured with an education program in Southeast England before performing at the Resolution! season at The Place, London.

Due to injury, Anne took on more teaching and choreography work, before retraining as a physiotherapist here in Australia. She graduated from Griffith in 2010 with a dual degree in Exercise Science and Physiotherapy, and went on to take further professional development in Pilates methods such as Stott, APPI and DMA.

She has settled with her family in Brisbane working as a physiotherapist, . Anne enjoys overlapping her experience of professional dance and Pilates with her knowledge of clinical practice and works closely with CAPA Students, managing musculoskeletal and dance  related injuries, Pointe work assessments and Pointe preparation ensuring the safely, health and wellbeing of our students.
