Throughout her Middle School and High School years, Brittany continued to dance competitively with Perseverance Dance Company under the direction of Missy Ridgeway.

Straight out of high school, Brittany trained at Gus Giardano Dance School in Chicago on scholarship. She trained there for a year and then received the exciting news that she was accepted to train on scholarship at The Edge Performing Arts Center in LA. Brittany decided to move out to California to pursue a professional career in dance.

In 2014, Brittany relocated to Green Bay to work for Barbs Dance Center, where her dances won many high score and choreography awards.
