Bree Sneed
Resident Instructor

Bree personifies dynamic energy, creativity, and innovation. Following graduation from the Peabody Institute of John Hopkins University, she has performed with a plethora of dance companies including Alvin Ailey, BelChi, Naranja Dance Company, The Broadway Dance Center, Arena Players, Bradfield Dance Academy, Dance Baltimore, Arthur Murray, and most recently Endicott Dance Academy. Her passion for the arts led her to embrace a variety of dance styles including ballet, contemporary, belly dance, hip-hop, Latin, cabaret, and dance fitness.

Bree loves how the musicality of hip-hop gives dancers the freedom to express themselves through movement. She finds salsa invigorating because of the way the iconic instruments of Latin music allow dancers to formulate a sexy and sensual performance.
