Bri Bridge

Hip Hop

Bri Bridge was born in Phoenix, Arizona, and has been aware of her passion and ambition for the arts since the day she could remember.  When asked what she wanted to be when she grew up, Bri always replied, “a dancer and a fashion designer.” She loved (and still loves) painting, sewing, crafting, music, and most of all, performing.  Before dance lessons, Bri first trained as a competitive baton twirler. She achieved state, regional, and national championships by age 12, but still wanted to pursue more types of performance art. After training in ballet and jazz with a local studio, Bri was awarded both academic and dance scholarships for her education at Arizona Statue University.  It was here that Bri discovered the Arizona hip hop culture and dance styles. Passionate about the music, movement, and the opportunity for self expression, Bri began sharing her love for hip hop dance through teaching at age 19. Bri has performed on many stages for music festivals, Superbowl events, and fashion shows. She continues to choreograph for local music artists Luna Aura, the Phunk Junkeez, and many more, & is a guest instructor/choreographer for high school dance teams all over Phoenix. Aside from the “dance life”, Bri owns a freelance creative and fashion business, dong what she loves each and every day.  BUT... her favorite place to be is with her family at The Dance Project - not only teaching, but styling and designing costumes, and exercising her love for creativity with many projects the dance world has to offer. She hopes, more than anything, to pass this legacy on to each of her students. "It is the supreme art of the teacher to awaken joy in creative expression and knowledge.” --Albert Einstein
