Residency Dance Teaching

"Brenner's expertise in choreography and production and her years of experience as a dance artist labeled her as an 'articulate genius' by one of our young choreographers. An excellent choice for a guest company who can both teach and perform brilliantly."

--Loa Mangelson-Clawson,
ACDFA Festival Director & Professor
Univ. of Utah-Salt Lake City
