Annie Bell Howard Lindsay is an academic and artistic icon to many. Known as Mrs. Lindsay to her more than 6000 students, or "Auntie" to her 30+ adoring nieces and nephews she has been a staple in the Birmingham City School System for more than 50 years, with 43 of those years spent at the renowned Erskine Ramsay High School atop Birmingham's Southside. On April 27, 2013 at 3:00pmMrs. Lindsay will take her final bow as an instructor at Ramsay High School leaving behind a legacy that's as rich, diverse and impacting as the lives of the students she touched.

A dancer, a teacher, a mentor and a living legend, Annie Lindsay was reared in Fort Deposit, Alabama and received her education at Birmingham's Lincoln Elementary School, Parker High School, Miles College and the University of Alabama at Birmingham. She met her loving and overwhelmingly supportive husband of 60 years, William Lindsay when she worked in the Lindsay Tailoring Shop. Annie Lindsay began her teaching career at Ullman High School after many years as a substitute teacher. Her love affair with dance blossomed later in life after taking her first dance class at the age of 36 years. Practically teaching herself to dance through classes at the University of Alabama at Birmingham, Montevallo and through workshops at the internationally known Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater, from her first dance move to now, Annie Lindsay has never looked back.
...
Thought to be the oldest working dance instructor, Annie Lindsay has been spotlighted on local and national television and in print. She was featured internationally on 60 Minutes CBS News Early Show's, "Can't Stop Dancing". She was also highlighted in "Saving the Last Dance" published in National Teacher Magazine and garnering nationwide press for the City of Birmingham and Ramsay High School. Most notably in the article was the fact that, at 76 years old at the time, Mrs. Lindsay was still continuing to drive 60 miles daily roundtrip to ensure that Ramsay's dance program continued. In response to what drives her drive to teach, Mrs. Lindsay said," I promised my student, my children I would work until they graduated."
A strong faith in God and a dedication to spiritual growth, intellectual and cultural development and morals, manners and etiquette, Annie Lindsay is the quintessential leader who has spent more than half of her life expressing her love to others through her love of dance. With a spirit as beautiful as the poetic dance pieces she choreographs, Annie Bell Howard Lindsay has made it her mission to instill faith, purpose and direction with the many past and present students fortunate enough to have been under her tutelage. She has gracefully done this one dance move at a time.
The retirement celebration for Annie Bell Howard Lindsay will be Saturday, April 27th 2013 at 3:00PM in the Erskine Ramsay High School Auditorium at 1800 13th Ave South, Birmingham AL 35205.

Lindsay has been teaching dance at Ramsay High School in Birmingham for 36 years, for her it's much more than just a job.
"I'm a mama.I'm a momma first and then I'm a teacher because I feel like a mother hen.She pushes her children underneath her wing and that's what I try to do," said Lindsay.
When she was in school, arts such as dance weren't offered.That's why she's so passionate that these kids get a chance to express themselves.
Last year, Lindsay was offered a buy-out.At 76 many would have taken the package, but she turned it down because she afraid of what might happen if she leaves.
When asked, "What's your biggest fear if you do take one of these buyouts," Lindsay replied, "That the program will be dropped.And that's my biggest fear."Lindsay added, "The arts are the first thing to be cut, the fine arts."
...
Lindsay replied, "I think so.I may be wrong but I think so."
When asked, "If the program was cut do you see that as a big step backward for the school?"Lindsay replied, "Think it would, that's my thinking.I think it would I really do.
When asked, "When the arts get cut what happens?"Lindsay replied, "It takes away from the kids because everything isn't academic.
...
I have so many wonderful kids, that I don't want to walk off and leave them," said Lindsay.
