She performed in a wide variety of ballets such as Swan Lake, Giselle, Coppélia, Romeo and Juliet, Sleeping Beauty, Paquita, Turandot, and many many others. In search of new adventure after 13 years in Hong Kong, Jae next moved to Macau, SAR China, to perform first as a dancer and later as the principal in The House of Dancing Water, a $250 million modern circus production.

Brooke is a former student of Viktor who has not limited herself to any method or genre of dance. She was fortunate enough to train in Vaganova, ISTD, and Cecchetti, but her passion for the art really developed in her jazz, hip hop, and contemporary training. While attending Duquesne University, Brooke was a member of the university’s Dance Theater Company which gave her the opportunity to grow further as both a dancer and choreographer. She was able to set several pieces on the company, teach classes, and sit on their board. Living in Pittsburgh also gave her the chance to be cast in multiple pieces with Exhalations Dance Theatre, a budding dance company. After accepting a job in Lancaster, Brooke returned in 2017 where she quickly dove back into teaching, setting pieces, and helping choreograph theater shows. She’s excited be back in the VYIBA family and aid in developing students that are pursuing their love of dance.
