There is never a dull moment in class! Each specific class and lesson plan are catered to specific age groups from Pre-K to adults. They consist of engaging movement activities, warm-up, and complex movement combinations. I am an energetic and patient teacher who seriously takes into account the needs and skill level of the student in preparing the lesson plans and material.
My use of dance vocabulary and physical demonstrations allow me to teach the material accurately and effectively. My positive attitude and constant words of encouragement keep students motivated and engaged in the lesson. Students will increase their knowledge and physical vocabulary of the movement style and leave each lesson a better dancer, performer and person.
I encourage students to bring writing materials to each lesson to take notes for any learned vocabulary and each lesson will follow with a recorded video of the movement for the students to refer to until the next lesson.
I received my Bachelor’s of Fine Arts in Dance and Bachelors of Arts in Sociology from the University of Michigan in May of 2013 and has had a wide range of professional experience. Most recently, my teaching experience was featured in the online Magazine I love Brussels in March 2018. In addition, I currently work with ZIKIT Dance Company, a Brussels-based body percussion dance company and 4Hoog Theater in Gent, Belgium. I have also performed and taught, nationally and internationally as an independent artist as well as with StepAfrika, and contemporary dance company SJEwing & Dancers at numerous colleges/universities, festivals, showcases, Guantanamo Bay Naval Base as well as many others. In 2015, I served as the assistant choreographer on the American Theater’s Company’s production of The Project(s) in Chicago, IL, rated 4 stars by the Chicago Tribune. I have received numerous commissions from Dance Place’s New Releases Showcase, Dance Ethos Dance Company, Joy of Motion’s Youth Dance Ensemble, the University of Michigan, and the 2016 March on Washington Film Festival in Washington, D.C. I have over a decade of teaching experience working with young adults at Catholic University and the University of Michigan Dance Department, as well as incarcerated youth, and students ranging from pre-kindergarten and older in all styles such step, hip hop, jazz, social dance, modern, stepping, and ballet.

So far so good! I’ve taken two classes with Briana. She’s a charming being. I’m already improving and looking forward to more.
J'adore Briana! Elle est très pédagogue et on se sent très à l'aise avec elle. On peut parler de tout avec elle comme une amie américaine, ce qui est géniale car notre langue s'améliore aussi.
Je recommande Briana en tant que professeur d'anglais ! Elle est très pédagogue et transmet son énergie dans ses cours pour motiver ses élèves.
