Interview with Anne Mueller
by Dean Speer and Francis Timlin
I like “feisty” roles! You can guess that I like to move!! To take up space. I’m small and wiry and most of my power is in my legs and center. I like to do men’s combinations, as we get to do the steps I’m good at and like doing – and it’s how I like to move; big and energetically.
