As a rock drummer and percussionist, she has performed with Roger Hodgson (Supertramp), Marie Osmond, Alan Frew (Glass Tiger), Rik Emmett (Triumph) and Sam Orbison (The Roy Orbison Story).

In 2006 she was invited to perform at the Cape Breton International Drum Festival alongside such legendary drummers as Billy Cobham, Denny Seiwell (Paul McCartney and Wings) Hossam Ramzy (Peter Gabriel) and World Drumming Ambassador Dom Famularo. Dale Anne teaches drumming to many up-and-coming musicians at the studio she owns and operates in London Ontario, the Sweet Music Centre.

When at home in Stratford Ontario Canada for any length of time, Dale Anne alternates between playing the blues (check out her playing on Michael Pickett's Blues Money cd which earned a Juno nomination) and performing classical music on percussion with Orchestra London Canada. She is frequently invited to the Stratford Shakespeare Festival (Canada's largest Classical theatre) to play Broadway musicals such as The Music Man and Cabaret.
