Bridget Breiner was born in Connecticut, USA, and raised in Columbus, Ohio, where she received her early dance training at the BalletMet Dance Academy. She completed her training at the Heinz-Bosl-Stiftung in Munich and subsequently joined the Bavarian State Ballet in 1992 under the direction of Konstanze Vernon, who promoted her to Demi-Soloist. In 1996 she joined the Stuttgart Ballet under the direction of Reid Anderson and quickly became one of the company's most celebrated dancers, being promoted to Soloist in 1997 and Principal in 2001. From 2006 to 2008 she danced with the Semperoper Ballett in Dresden under the direction of Aaron Watkin. Currently she is a regular guest artist with the Stuttgart Ballet and makes frequent appearances with other German ballet companies.
Ms. Breiner's versatility also brought her leading roles in William Forsythe's Herman Schmerman, Approximate Sonata, In the Middle, Somewhat Elevated, The Second Detail, and Love Songs as well as in Hans van Manen's Twilight, Kleines Requiem, Große Fuge, and Five Tangos. Her repertoire of works by Jiří Kylián includes Nuages, Forgotten Land, Sinfonietta, Svadebka and Return to a Strange Land, and she has had the privilege to work personally with both choreographers.

In addition, Ms. Breiner has inspired a wide range of today's leading European choreographers, most especially Christian Spuck and Douglas Lee, both home-grown choreographers of the Stuttgart Ballet.

Ms. Breiner was appointed Artistic Director of the Musiktheater im Revier, Gelsenkirchen from season 2012 .
