Brynli Swallow

Brynli Swallow has had a love for dance ever since the age of four when she began her first dance lesson. Originally from Meridian, Idaho, she began training at Studio C Academy of Dance. Here she trained in the styles of ballet, hip hop, jazz, lyrical, contemporary, pointe, and music theatre until she graduated High School. As a member of the competitive team, she loved traveling to national competitions and conventions. She was able to receive many scholarships including Maximum Velocity Artist Winner, Senior Provo Dancer of the Year at Hollywood Vibe Dance Convention, JUMP dance convention VIP Winner, and LA Dance Magic Performer of the Weekend. Brynli also had the opportunity to travel to Los Angeles and take classes at The Edge Performing Arts Center, Millenium Dance Complex, and Movement Lifestyle studios. In 2014 she was selected to perform in the opening number of Nigel Lythgoe’s Dizzy Feet Foundation Gala in Los Angeles. 


After graduating High School, Brynli became a member of the 20x National Champion BYU Cougarette dance team. Following her freshman year on the team, she decided to serve a mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. While in the Leeds, England mission, Brynli was able to teach free dance classes to young girls who wanted to learn. She developed a love for sharing her talent in the form of teaching. 


Brynli is currently a member of the BYU Cougarettes, and going into her fourth year on the team. Last year she was able to be a part of the team as they took home a National Title in the 1A Hip Hop division.   Besides dancing herself, one of her greatest passions and strengths is teaching and choreographing. She has been able to work as a member of the Precision Dance Camps (PDC) staff, and travel to local High School teams to choreograph competitive routines and teach workshops. She is currently a part of the Champion Dance Camps staff, much like PDC. She’s also experienced in choreographing competitive solos, duos, trios, and group routines. She has been teaching dance classes ranging from the ages of 5-18 ever since she was 15 years old. Seeing young dancers improve and achieve their goals is one of her favorite parts of being a dance teacher.
