D A N C E
Born and raised in Vienna, Brini first got in touch with dance at the age of 4. The styles that were introduced to her first were Jazz in combination with Broadway singing & dancing. She has always been a natural performer and her dreams and goals would put her on stages like the MTV Music Awards as an artist which then led her into training Hip Hop Foundations, House and Stage Choreography. At 16 she landed her first Job dancing for Puls4 and at 23 she choreographed Puls4 Kiddy Contest.

After gradually teaching dance in Vienna for many years, while educating herself taking intensives and classes in other European Cities like London, Berlin and Amsterdam, in 2017, the one and only Shirlene Quigley awarded Brini with a scholarship to train at Broadway Dance Center in New York City. In 2018 she made that dream a reality. Being a scholar at BDC and training with dance legends like Luam, Sekou Heru, Jessica Castro, Candace Brown, Princess Lockeroo and later Dana Foglia shaped Brini's teaching methods and choreographic style into what is now brinidad choreography.

Returning to Vienna in 2019 she originated a different kind of motivation within the Viennese dance and entertainment scene. In the summer of 2019 she made her debut as a teacher in London at base dance studios. Later that year, in September, Brini conceptualized and organized the first HEELS DANCE INTENSIVE in Austria together with the four fellow powerwomen Teresa Janschitz, Valerie Lichtenwörther, Sarah & Julia Reindl, known today as VIENNA HEELS.

 

During the Lockdown times Brini used the time to further educate herself within teaching, choreography, acting and especially dance medicine. Early 2022 she graduated from the remote program of Me&MyBest Dance Medicine for Professional Dancers.
