Brynn was selected two years in a row, to perform a restaged work by the Liz Geering dance company, from New York City.
In 2015, Brynn joined Polaris Dance Theater as a company member and danced works by Robert Guitron, M’liss Quinley, Briley Neugebauer (Of PDX Contemporary Ballet) and Barbara Lima (of Ella Fala). She then expanded her artistic voice by creating her own professional contemporary dance company, Horizon3, with Melanie Verna and Gerard Regot.

Brynn has also been invited and selected as a guest teacher and choreographer in Sitka Alaska, Portland Oregon, Seattle Washington, Spokane Washington, and Vancouver Washington.
As a ballet instructor, she has set and choreographed original full-length ballets for her students, working to increase their technique, artistry and love for ballet. Her focus as a teacher is to combine the anatomic knowledge of what muscles should be working, with the artistry of dance to create technically strong and mentally aware dancers. She is Pilates certified and on her off time studies anatomy and body awareness for dancers.
She, her husband, and daughter recently relocated to their home city of Spokane Washington where they plan to raise their family. Brynn is so honored to be faculty at her home studio, Isabelle’s Dance Time, and already has felt so much love and kindness from the students and family.
