Briana was born and raised on the beautiful island of Maui. Growing up, she trained with the Maui Academy of Performing Arts, the Seabury Hall Dance Ensemble, and the Alexander Academy of Performing Arts. During her time with these academies, she studied ballet, jazz, modern, and contemporary. Ballet is always where she felt the most at home. In high school, she spent her summers at the North Carolina School of the Arts studying ballet and modern. Briana moved to Denver in 2005 to attend college at the University of Denver. She met Stephanie and Lee Prosenjak in 2008 and began teaching combo classes at Cherry Creek Dance. After graduating with a degree in English Literature, she began working for CCD full-time. She considers herself lucky to be able to work with an art form that has brought her so much joy. You will find Miss Bri teaching combos, pre-ballet, and lyrical classes, working in the office, and when she can, taking class at Cherry Creek Dance!
