Brenda Russell

Brenda is fulfilling her childhood dream as a professional dancer and instructor. She studies African-American street dances from the turn of the century to the present. Brenda travels around the world teaching and training with various coaches and historians. Her strength is breaking down the dances in a way that is accessible to anyone, even if they dont have a dance background. She strives to help her students find the dancer with-in themselves, taking inspiration from dancers of the past. Brenda is working with the Blues dance community during this time of growth to develop curriculum and events that raise the communities level of dancing. her hope is to provide structure for duplicable material, while keeping the inherent character and nature of the dance.
