She has had the honour of receiving the Frank Cameron trophy two years in a row for the Broadway Showtunes solo category. Brittany was awarded the Walter Batterham for highest overall score including duets, trios, and choral in the Powell River Festival of Performing Arts with one of her Musical Theatre solos.
In adulthood she has been in Far Off Broadway's Chicago and Funhouse. Brittany has directed and choreographed 3 Christmas productions - The Nutcracker, One FROZEN Night, and All Aboard the Polar Express.
Brittany looks forward to bringing her love of Musical Theatre and Tap to her students.
