Brieanna Hynish is from St. Petersburg, FL. Starting her dance training at the age of three studying tap, clogging and jazz at beginning levels, Ms. Hynish had found her niche at an early age. By eight years old Ms. Hynish was competing in national Dance Competitions across the country in tap, clogging, jazz, and lyrical. While continuing her training for dance competitions Ms. Hynish discovered ballet at the age of 11, beginning her training under Mervet Elnabarawi and Wagih Aboelella at the Arts Middle school in St. Pete. She also expanded her training outside of school by attending the Academy of Ballet Arts Inc. under the direction of Suzanne Pomerantzeff.
Having decided ballet was her ultimate goal, Ms. Hynish gave up competition dance to focus more on technique at the age of 14. Throughout her schooling at Pinellas County Center for the Arts she attended Boston Ballet's summer intensive, as well as Orlando Ballet's summer program with teachers such as Miko Nissenen, Olivier Pardina, Peter Stark, Bruce Marks, and Julie Kent. When high school ended Ms. Hynish decided to attend Mercyhurst College for their Dance Department (concentration in performance and choreography) where she had the pleasure of meeting and training under guest faculty Alicia Alonso, Bill Evans and Vivi Flindt. Having decided to focus on Choreography, she choreographed and staged two full length pieces while in college, and was also proud to perform in the ballets Le sylphide, Giselle, The Piano, Brahms and many Modern and Original Contemporary Works. While attending College Ms. Hynish was honored to be an apprentice, then company member of Lake Erie Ballet where she performed in the Nutcracker as several roles, and their Spring and Fall productions. Having always had a way with children, and being trained in Pedagogy in college, she has shifted focus to teaching and has enjoyed teaching Ballet, Tap, Modern, Lyrical and Improv classes and strives to continue the disciplined and structured strength of the Vaganova technique as a dancer's strong basis of training.
