Born and raised in Annapolis, Maryland, she began her dance training with Ballet Theatre of Maryland. In 2011, she moved to New York City to attend the Joffrey Ballet School, where she trained under the direction of Michael Blake and Robert Ray. She has performed the works of choreographers such as Christopher Huggins, Dwight Rhoden, Guillermo Blinker, Marijke Eliasberg, and Jana Hicks. At the Perri Institute for Mind and Body, Brianna was certified as a yoga instructor through the Mind Body Dancer® 300 Yoga Pedagogy Course. As a teacher and practitioner of yoga, Brianna is endlessly fascinated by the connections that we make between our practice on the mat, and the manner in which we live our lives outside of the studio.
