Ana Ogbueze (Pronounced Oh-Boy-Zee) – A multi hyphenate to the core.
Actress, Professional Dancer - Choreographer - Designer - Creative Director - Producer - Event Host
In 2010 Ana founded NC Dance District: Charlotte's 1st industry style hip-hop dance studio for adults. In 2019, Ana decided to create AnaOnDemand to share her unique class style with her followers outside of Charlotte. AnaOnDemand is an online destination for her super-fun, easy-to-follow, TURNT UP dance classes.
You might recognize Ana from an NBA dance team roster with the Charlotte Bobcats, now the Charlotte Hornets, or from the latenight CIZE infomercials where she's dancing along side Fitness Celebrity Shaun T! A UNCC alum and former Goldduster, Ana began her professional dance career during her sophomore year of college back in 2004. Since then, she has trained at top dance studios in London, New York & L.A. She has also worked for the Oxygen Network, filmed 2 Coca Cola commercials and even been featured as a fitness talent for Beachbody.
For every major accomplishment, Ana can pinpoint the moment when she knew God stepped in to really make things happen. You see, Ana's story to success is very unique and still developing. Each and every one of her accolades comes with a testimony filled with trials, tribulations and triumphs. Ana contributes all of her success to an audacious faith in Jesus Christ and His promise over her life. Ana stands tall as a Believer and works daily on her walk with Christ.
As the founder of The Dance District, she has proven to be a fearless pioneer in the Charlotte dance community. A non-traditional dancer to say the least, Ana began her dance training right in her living room before attending actual dance classes at the age of 15. Ana passionately and diligently worked towards her dreams and is now a a sought after talent with works featured in music videos, short films and live shows throughout Charlotte and the Southeast area.
As a rule of thumb, Ana lives by the simple concepts of authenticity and intentions. In her eyes, good people DO finish first and what is meant for you, is meant for YOU!
In an effort to spread the love and benefits of dance with individuals from all walks of life, Ana Ogbueze launched the performance based non profit called, “Project: FULL OUT”. One of Ana's greatest joys is uncovering ways to serve others through her gifts. This program, also known as PFO, thrives on the campaign “Push For Opportunities” - Push for opportunities to dance, connect and discovery! The Project: FULL OUT program began as a passion project and over the past 7 years has evolved in a movement for dream makers and touring show!
The ability to connect with others through movement is one of Ana’s greatest gifts, and any opportunity to share that gift with others is what drives her. Once the seed was planted in her to start her own dance business and non - profit she decided to do it all on faith and never look back! She leads her company with this mission statement: "[To] Create countless opportunities for local dancers to train, perform and live out their dreams."
