Miss Bri first started dancing when she was eight years old. It was then, in her first Jazz class with Miss Vickie, that she fell in love with movement. Since then, Miss Bri has started training in Jazz, Tap, Ballet, Lyrical, and Hip Hop. Her passion for dance has grown to a new level these last few years as she has experienced working with young students as an assistant. Nothing is more rewarding to her then seeing both her fellow dancers and younger students grow at competitions and recitals. Miss Bri is so excited to be taking on her new role as an instructor at Westland Dance Co.
