Director Biography - Briley Jozwiak

A native of Vancouver, Washington, Briley Jozwiak started dancing at age 4 and spent most of her youth training under the direction of Maricar Drilon and Russell Capps. Once ballet became her main focus, she spent summers training at Alonzo King Lines Ballet (2009), Oregon Ballet Theatre (2009), and Atlanta Ballet (2010). She began her professional career with Atlanta Ballet as a fellowship from 2010-2012 where she performed in such works as Twyla Tharp’s Princess and the Goblin, Christopher Wheeldon’s Rush, and James Kudelka’s Four Seasons. After her time in Atlanta, Briley spent a season as a company member with Nevada Ballet Theatre (2012-2013) and returned to the Northwest the following year to freelance. She then spent the 2014-2015 season with Ballet Tucson where she performed Ian Horvath’s Laura’s Women as a soloist. She has been working with push/FOLD and The Holding Project since her return to Portland, as well as turning her interests toward dance for film.
