Brian was chosen to work with Simon Cowell on several of his highest ranking projects, including judging, choreographing, creative directing, and producing. These shows include “The X Factor” (US and UK), America's Got Talent & Britain's Got Talent.

Brian can be described as a pioneer entrepreneur, having opened his first dance studio at the age of 16. He got his first big break when he starred in the 1992 film “Newsies”. Soon thereafter, he was one of the breakout stars on the hit show “Kids Incorporated”, alongside Jennifer Love Hewitt and the late Brittany Murphy. He has since worked on Dancing with The Stars, So You Think You Can Dance, Will & Grace, The Tonight Show, Late Night, Jimmy Kimmel, The Ellen Show, Oprah, MTV VMA’s, VH1 Divas Live, American Music Awards and the Billboard Music Awards to name a few.

In addition to spending his time as a Producer, Director, Creative Director, and Choreographer, Brian enjoys giving back to the community. He has toured the world teaching and mentoring thousands of dancers by working on countless events including The Pulse on Tour, for which he was the Co-Creator and Creative Director, The Main Event which he is the Creator and Director of as well as Radix Dance Convention where he currently teaches. Brian also created an interactive instructional dance DVD called “Freestyle”, teaching audiences around the world original choreography from his most renowned works. In an effort to reach students who cannot travel to him and him to them, he created an online mentorship program called The Talent Collective. The program helps guide the lives of future artists and entertainers, creating and developing original projects and catapulting careers in the entertainment industry.

Brian has never stopped learning, growing and venturing into new fields. He took on the fashion industry as a designer when he partnered with the international company Capezio to create his own Shoe Line called “B-Free”. That same love for fashion led him to eventually create a full apparel & shoe line called Brian Says B Free as well as a costume collection titled Brian Friedman Performance & a dance wear line called Brian Friedman Dance Wear, both with Discount Dance Supply.
