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.
