Born in Connecticut American prima ballerina Bridget Breiner started her ballet training at the BalletMet Dance Academy in Columbus, Ohio, and continued it at the Heinz Bosl Foundation in Munich. She became a corps de ballet dancer at the Bavarian State Ballet and worked there up to 1996 getting a promotion as a demi soloist ballerina.
Bridget excels at dramatic acting roles so when she joined the Stuttgart Ballet in the 1996 she was promoted to soloist and then to principal dancer in 2001. Since that time Bridget has been a muse to many choreographers including David Dawson, Douglas Lee, Mauro Bigonzetti and Christian Spuck. Recently Breiner successfully started working as a free-lance ballet choreographer.
