Whether it's on stage displaying the latest hip-hop dance moves or lending a helping hand throughout the San Diego community, Danielle Breanna Abrenica, 16, is a young woman who is always on the move. Known by her family and friends simply “Bre”, she has had a lifelong passion for both dance and community service.

As a junior at Rancho Bernardo High School (RBHS), Breanna is a member of Link Crew and Key Club. Each organization has given her the opportunity to spend numerous hours volunteering at elementary school fairs, charity events and walks.

While the community is where she flourishes, it's the stage where she shines. Breanna began dancing at the age of four. For more than a decade, she has honed her skills in the areas of ballet, tap, jazz and lyrical. Her favorite style is Hip-hop, where the fast paced beats match her fast paced lifestyle. She is currently a member of the RBHS intermediate dance team, which performs at most of the school's basketball and football games.

Prior to her dance experience at school, Breanna attended dance class at Valna Rue School of Dance, Stars Studio and San Diego Dance Center. She was also a member of X-Force, a local Hip-hop performance troupe. With these schools, Breanna has had the opportunity to perform at many locations including San Diego Chargers' Blood Drive, Rancho Bernardo Alive, the Mira Mesa Street Fair, Disneyland, Knotts Berry Farm and the Holiday Bowl.

She was born and raised in San Diego, and is the daughter of Monique Reyes (stepfather Jason Reyes) and Nick Abrenica, Jr, (stepmother Darlene Abrenica). She currently resides in Rancho Bernardo and is the eldest of six siblings; Jessica, David, Joshua, Annaliese and Mikayla.

She has enrolled in classes at Palomar College this summer with a plan to earn a full-year of college credit before her graduation from RBHS in 2007. She hopes to attend Pepperdine University in the fall of 2007 to major in Business Administration and dreams of one day starting her own business in the entertainment industry.
