Brittany Duskin



Born and raised in Olathe, Kansas, Brittany Duskin began dancing at the age of 10 at Priscilla and Dana’s School of Dance in Gladstone, MO. There she trained in Jazz, Modern, Contemporary, Ballet, Tap, Hip-Hop and fell in love with the art of dance. Brittany has also trained at The Ailey School Summer Intensive, Lines Ballet Summer Program, Northwest Dance Project’s: Launch 7, and The Edge Performing Arts Center’s Dance With the Force. Brittany is a recent graduate from the University of Missouri-Kansas City where she received a BFA in Dance. During her time at UMKC, Brittany was lucky enough to perform works created by Gary Abbott, Robert Battle, Hilary Cartwright, Josh Beamish, DeeAnna Hiett, and was hand-picked by Jerri Kumery to perform a role in Salvatore Aiello’s, Afternoon of a Faun. While in school, Brittany had the opportunity to perform with local dance companies such as Wylliams/Henry Contemporary Dance Theatre, Owen/Cox Dance Group, Seamless Dance Theater, and Quixotic Fusion. It was around then that Brittany realized she wanted to pursue a career as a performer and there was no turning back. Since then, she has relocated to New York City and is very excited to be dancing for the NBA as a Brooklynette. One of her most recent and biggest accomplishments was making it to the top 100 at the LA callbacks of So You Think You Can Dance Season 11. When Brittany isn’t performing or taking class, she enjoys traveling, exploring the outdoors, playing with animals, and eating some good food. Brittany is inspired by her voice teacher, Andrew Drost, who has taught her to embrace who she is and encourages her to unwarily work towards her dreams. “It takes courage to grow up and become who you really are.” E.E. Cummings.
