Anhthi “Maria” Nguyen began dancing at age fifteen on a full scholarship at Movement Laboratory, a pre-professional ballet school based in Lebanon, PA. In 2010, she received her Bachelor of Science in Dance, the first in her program at Drexel University. Today she teaches dance at Elite Dance Academy in Richboro. Maria is also a company member of Dancefusion where she studies classic modern repertoire. She is glad to be invited back for another season to work with Band of Artists for this innovative performance about OCD and addiction.
