Miss Breand has recently moved to Florida from Alabama. With almost 20 years of teaching experience, teaching dance combines two of her greatest passions: working with young people and sharing the joy of the art of dance. One of her favorite parts about teaching dance is watching the students grow and improve over the years. Some of her training has been with Al Gilbert, Bob Rizzo, Frank Hatchett, and many others. As a young dancer her performances included several roles in The Nutcracker, including Clara with Nashville Ballet and various roles with Huntsville Ballet Company. She has choreographed and danced in several musicals, as well as performed with N'SYNC. Breand is excited to join the MPSD family!
