“The only way to make sense out of change is to plunge into it, move with it, and join the dance.” -Alan Watts
Brittany is a born and raised New Yorker! She is a graduate of Fiorello H. LaGuardia High School of Music & Art and Performing Arts, known to many as “The Fame School,” where she was a Dance Major. Brittany continued her arts studies at the American Musical and Dramatic Academy, where she was an Integrated Major and then earned her BFA in Musical Theatre from The New School.
Landing her first professional job at 17 and feeling the rush of adrenaline, passion, family, and love, both on and off stage, Brittany knew Broadway would be her career! Along with performing on Broadway in A Bronx Tale (dance captain and original company member) and The Prom, Brittany has worked in the most prestigious regional theatres and traveled all over the nation and Canada performing with Broadway National Tours including Mean Girls, Matilda, Disney’s Beauty and the Beast, and on the high seas with Rock of Ages. She can be seen as Maria Ferraro in Law & Order: Special Victims Unit, Season 22, Episode 3 “Remember Me In Quarantine.” Brittany’s latest journey was being a part of Annie Live! on NBC where she was both an orphan and in the adult ensemble. For now, Brittany is continuing to travel the country with Broadway’s Mean Girls First National Tour, so catch her in a city near you!
Brittany has found a passion for being on the “other side of the table” where she gets to be within the creative development of a show. Brittany was the Restager Choreographer for the 2nd National Tour of A Bronx Tale after being the Assistant Choreographer on the 1st National Tour of A Bronx Tale. This is all thanks to her mentor, Sergio Trujillo. Being a part of the creative team allows for an even deeper connection with the beauty of theatre, and she welcomes with open arms for more of those opportunities in the future!
Brittany adores teaching passionate performers! Whether it be in master class settings or privately during coachings, Brittany always has the goal to bring out each student's uniqueness. She takes pride in providing a positive and encouraging learning environment where the students feel comfortable to work at their highest potential! She loves taking her students' art to the next level and is always in awe by her students' willingness to learn and grow. Brittany is all about tackling that bucket list! She also has a passion for yoga, in which during the pandemic, she became 200 hour certified and now teaches classes at her local studio, on the road, and over zoom.
Downtime in Brittany’s life consists of traveling, taking or teaching a power flow yoga class, a good series to binge-watch, enjoying a home-cooked meal, being active (hiking, kicking the soccer ball around, or exploring a new city), and secretly eating cookie dough! And yes, you read that right, soccer. Brittany also has a love of sports, especially soccer, where she played competitively for many years.
