“Briana was first introduced to me by Jessica Fogel, chair of the University of Michigan’s Department of Dance, as a performer who would be the perfect addition to a very special event being planned. In my role as Chief Diversity and Inclusion Officer for the School of Music, Theatre & Dance, I was in charge of organizing the U-M Bicentennial Colloquia: Social Justice and the Performing Arts, featuring U.S. Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor. Briana’s performance was the perfect complement to an evening of extraordinary talent depicting the power of hope, courage, and love. In particular, Briana’s energy and way of engaging the audience was a refreshing moment amongst the collection of performances. Personally, my daughters were enthralled by her movements and the joy she radiated. Her presence left a mark on their memory that surpassed all else that evening for them. It was truly a pleasure to have experienced her talents!”
