Hunter Brewer

 Hunter began dancing at Impulse Dance Academie, where she trained in all areas of dance. The first contemporary class she took, she fell in love. Inspired by the artistry and emotion contemporary has to offer, she began competing in high school. She won several awards including a 1st overall at Velocity Dance Convention. After high school she danced for three seasons with Project Flux, under the direction of Lydia Sakolsky-Basquill. Which gave her the opportunity to work alongside notable dancers and gained professional experience. Hunter then made the move to LA, where she fine tuned her contemporary style. She’s brought back with her tools and exercises to share with her students in both improv and self-choreography. Hunter strives to show her students that not only is dance a healthy outlet to fight adversity; it allows us to be expressive in storytelling and always continue to push our creative boundaries.
