Bryn has been dancing since she was 3 years old. She trained in a number of different styles including ballet, jazz, modern, character, and flamenco with the Atlanta Ballet Centre for Dance Education. As a teenager and a pre-professional with the Atlanta Ballet, Bryn was given the opportunity to perform roles with the professional company in ballets such as "The Nutcracker" and Michael Pink's world premiere of "Romeo and Juliet". Also during high school, Bryn attended many Summer

dance intensives including a program in Beijing, China to train with the Beijing Ballet Academy. After high school, she attended the University of Arizona where she double majored in dance and creative writing. Bryn moved to San Francisco after graduation to teach, dance, and train with contemporary companies including Napoles Ballet and Capacitor. Bryn moved back to Arizona in 2009 and found her talent for teaching with Ballet Fusion Fitness in 2011. She obtained her Master's in Social Work from Arizona State University in May of 2013 and practiced as a clinical therapist for Arizona long term care clients. While she counsels others by day, dance and teaching is her passion and form of self-care. Bryn was the assistant director to Ballet Fusion Fitness' dance company Second Act Dance and enjoyed choreographing and dancing for two summers before moving back to Atlanta. For the last two years, Bryn has been building a psychotherapy practice in Midtown while teaching fitness for and managing a boutique-style fitness studio. Bryn believes in the Mind-Body connection in a real way and combines her love of mental health with physical health to create balance in her life as well as the lives of others.
