Bri is an emerging choreographer based in Toronto, Canada.
Her creative practices centres around storytelling and how musical, physical and textual narratives shape characters onstage.
Before moving to Toronto to gain a BFA in Performance Dance, she developed her choreographic voice by setting movement on her younger classmates at Leeming Danceworks. During her post-secondary education, she choreographed on her fellow classmates and experimented with movement directing actors in various musicals and plays. Bri enjoys choreographing for multiple competitive dance studios across Ontario. She dreams of one day choreographing a Broadway show.
RECENT CHOREOGRAPHIC PROJECTS
I am rehearsing solo and group routines on my students at The Dance Institute for their upcoming competition season. If you are interested in seeing more of my choreography, check out my Choreographic Reel below!
At The Cornerstone Studio, I set a mini-musical version of “You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown” on my Musical Theatre students. They brought in their won costuming, and their parents came to watch. Bravo little ones! Poster design by Hannah Robertson
My piece “Hold on, let go” premiered at the Common Ground Dance Festival in North York, this October. Danced by students of the School of Toronto Dance Theatre and the Conservatory of Dance & Music. Thank you to TOES FOR DANCE for producing the festival and to my dancers for their artistic voices! Photos by Aidan Tooth Photography.
