Get to know Brielle:

What does being a DBC mean to you? Being a DBC means everything to me. It means I get to continue dancing and performing when I thought I couldn't anymore, it means being a role model to my students and showing them that dance can take you anywhere in life, and more than anything, it means that dreams do come true. 

Who is your hero?My hero would have to be my mom. It sounds cliché but no one's love can compare to a mother's, and I wouldn't be where I am today without her. 

Tell us about the first concert you've ever been to. The first concert I ever went to was the Backstreet Boys. I used to have the biggest crush on Nick Carter and even skipped trick-or-treating to go!

What is your dream vacation destination? Dream vacation would have to be Italy and Europe. I am Italian so it is only right for me to go explore my homeland!

When did you first start dancing/cheerleading? I started dancing when I was 5 years old and pre professionally since I was 9.  I grew up in the classical ballet world and until I made the team last year, I had never been on a cheer or poms team before.  It is a new style for me but I am loving it!

In 10 years I see myself… with one of those beautiful Super Bowl rings on my hand!  And of course, continuing to grow my dance studio and inspiring dancers of all ages.

As a kid, what did you want to be when you grew up? I grew up wanting to become a professional dancer and eventually open up my own studio.  Who knew I would be doing both of those already!

What advice would you give your younger self? I would tell myself to not stress the little things.  As a dancer, I was born a perfectionist, but sometimes it is OK to go with the flow and trust that what is meant to be, will be.
