Dance Lessons By Briley
Experienced instructor in Ballet, Pointe Technique, Contemporary Ballet, Contemporary, Jazz, Lyrical, and Tap.
I in particular love working with students privatly so we can work on specific goals towards their technique or artistry.
I have been teaching for about seven years and five years ago I started my own professional contemporary ballet company in Portland Oregon.
I am willing to travel to you if you have the studio available. Or I can book a studio if necessary.
I mostly stick to private and semi private lessons.
Please feel free to email me at [email protected] if you have any questions!

How did you get started teaching?
I was dancing professionally and wanted to expand my dancing career into other pathways. I tried teaching and absoltuly fell in love with it!
What types of students have you worked with?
Ages 5 and up.
What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?
Find a teacher that you feel like you can connect with. Many teachers can teach the same thing but I find that it is most effective when student and teacher can really connect with each other.
What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?
How many hours are you willing to put in a week?
What are your goals and why do you want to take dance lessons?
Are you doing this for fun or do you want to be very serious with dance? Either way be clear to your instructor what you want out of a class.
