Breeonna fiamengo

Director & Instructor

Breeonna Fiamengo has been teaching and choreographing since the young age of 14 years old. At the age of 16, she decided to create a children's pre-professional dance company, The Breeonna Fiamengo Dance Co. (BFDC). BFDC quickly became a reputable place for dance training. Through competing at high level events, the BFDC received numerous top awards: top overalls, best in category, best choreography, best technique, best costume, and the highly coveted MVP award at Hall of Fame. Breeonna's main goal is to help each student reach their maximum potential; all while creating a fun, positive learning environment. Since then, Breeonna has teamed up with Kelly Dankbar to create "Motion State Studios.” In Motion State's first year, the team had already succeeded in winning top awards in the convention circuit as well as at the national level. In her time as a dancer, Breeonna performed as a guest artist for the Silver Laker Contemporary Ballet Company, at Choreography Carnival’s in pieces for Sabrina Phillip and Kelsey McCowan, and tap danced at a gala event for produced by Seth McFarland. Through her experiences, Breeonna has discovered her true passion for instructing and influencing young dancers in their journey.
