Brianna Stinebaugh-Blumberg: Hello, my name is Brianna Stinebaugh-Blumberg. I’m 31 years old and have always had a love of dance. Once I started dancing my love for dance was set. I danced through high school and trained under some of the biggest names in the field, including year-round training at the Kirov Academy, Washington, D.C., summer camps with ABT, workshops with Alvin Ailey Dance Company, just to list a few. Throughout high school and my undergraduate college career, I worked in The Dance Shop and also taught for County Ballet. When I graduated with my B.S. in psychology from Towson University, I followed my heart and chased my passion by working for four years at Sheppard Pratt while also completing my M.A. in experimental psychology also from Towson University. I then started teaching biopsychology and research full-time at Towson University for the last six years. Always having dance on the side as a way to get my exercise and as a passion! I’ve been married for three years and have a daughter! I just made a career change to being a full-time stay-at-home mom with my 17-month-old daughter, Reign! I’m beyond excited and have never been happier! When Ms. Pam asked me about teaching once a week, I thought it was the perfect way to connect back to my roots, share my love of dance with County Ballet students, and prepare to teach my little one (who also LOVES to dance) at home!!
