Angela “Angie” Fribourgh has always had a great passion for the arts. Her love of dance and theatre was sparked at an early age when her parents took her to see the Nutcracker at the San Francisco Ballet. For the following 10 years, she trained in ballet, tap and jazz at Kirkpatrick’s School of Dance in San Mateo. She then went on to San Francisco State University where she received a bachelor’s degree in Theatre Arts.
Angela has always loved working with young people. At the age of eleven, she began working with her mother, running a summer arts camp for children. There she choreographed, taught dances, and eventually began writing and directing short musicals for the camp.
For the past 12 years, Angela has taught a variety of dance classes for both children and adults at Kirkpatrick’s School of Dance in San Mateo and Red Morton Community Center in Redwood City. In spring 2018, she choreographed the 8th grade Musical “Willy Wonka” at Our Lady of Angels School in Burlingame.
