Anne Fletcher (born May 1, 1966) is an American dancer, actress, choreographer and film director.

Life and career[edit]

Born Anne Marie Fletcher in Detroit, Michigan, Fletcher lived with her family in the Detroit suburb of St. Clair Shores, Michigan until her 1984 graduation with honors from Lake Shore High School. Fletcher began taking dance lessons at a local dance studio at age 12 after watching her mother take a dance class. At age 15, she appeared in the local show Salute to the Superstars at the now-defunct Mr. F’s Beef & Bourbon dinner club in Sterling Heights, Michigan. Upon graduation from high school, Fletcher moved to Los Angeles, California, where she attained further training and initially worked as a professional dancer. In 1990, Fletcher met Adam Shankman when they were hired to perform as dancers at the upcoming Academy Awards. Shortly thereafter, Shankman hired Fletcher to become his assistant choreographer; beginning a longtime personal friendship and professional affiliation. Fletcher worked closely with Shankman both during his career as a choreographer and later as a film director and has credited her collaborations with Shankman for allowing her to both develop her own set of choreographic and film directorial skills and to achieve a similarly successful career path.

In her first film roles, Fletcher appeared as a dancer, including The Flintstones (1994), The Mask (1994), Tank Girl (1995), Casper (1995) and Titanic (1997). Fletcher later developed choreography for the Oscar-nominated drama film Boogie Nights (1997) starring Mark Wahlberg, Burt Reynolds, Julianne Moore and Heather Graham, in which she also appeared as a dancer, as well as for the comedy film A Life Less Ordinary (1997) with Ewan McGregor and Cameron Diaz.
