Bridgette Borzillo - Artistic Director
Bridgette Caron Borzillo has been choreographing since she was about 5 or 6 years old.Borzillo's family would watch movies in their living room and recreate them, which is partly how Borzillo got into acting and dancing. Borzillo and her sisters would create dance routines on their free time and did many talent shows as well. Borzillo grew up in musical theatre in her church as well as in the community. Borzillo took her first dance class in her freshman year at Fallbrook High School in San Diego, California.
Throughout high school, Borzillo was a tri-sport athlete (soccer, softball, and field hockey), a cheerleader, on the high school Dance Team, participated in the Step-Team club called Black Student Union, and created and participated in a county wide lip-sync competition called Airbands. These activities have shaped Borzillo into who she is today and how she choreographs. Her movement tells stories through theatrics and athleticism, ballroom sequences, and ambitious partner work.
After high school, Borzillo attended San Diego State University as a member of the softball team and dance department. This is where she had her first taste of ballet and modern movement. Borzillo then transferred to Arizona State University, walked on to the softball team and auditioned into the dance department where she studied ballet, modern, improvisation and choreography techniques, and Latin ballroom. She would create dance works like it was water flowing from a fountain, showing works at work shops, classes, and a few were chosen for student school productions. She graduated Cum Laude with a BFA in Dance Choreography in 2007.
Following College, Borzillo became a member of 32 Flavors Dance Company and taught ballroom at Arthur Murray. Because it was hard to make a living, Borzillo decided to go back to school for Massage Therapy. She opened her Massage practice in 2009 and then focused her energy on making the dance company she always wanted to be in, Scorpius Dance Theatre. Due to her tenacity, She auditioned three times and finally became a member in 2010. She then received the choreography bug again and it hasn't stopped since. She was in need of new inspiration and began to work with Dulce Dance Company which she officially joined in August of 2014.
Borzillo's work has been selected and shown in Dance in the Desert Festival in Las Vegas, NV 2015-2016, Beta Festival 2016, Arizona Dance West Festival 2016, and Scorpius Dance Theatre's Kick-A Dance Showcase in 2012, 2013 and 2017.
Borzillo is following her dream of owning a dance company and having the platform to show the inner-workings of her mind and her love and passion for dance. She is so blessed to work with such talented and dedicated dancers and without them, CaZo Dance would not be a successful company.
