Brittany Markle (Judge)
grew up in Pittsburgh, PA training in a variety of styles, and she now works as a choreographer and mentor for competitive dancers all over the country. She started her professional career at 9 years old as Clara in the Radio City Christmas Spectacular and from that point forward, she knew the stage was where she belonged. Most recently she acquired her bachelor’s degree of Arts and Sciences from Pace University with a specialization in professional communications studies and sports psychology.
Brittany also attained a certification in Performing Arts Essentials from New York University and joined the guest faculty line-up at Broadway Dance Center. She strives to help dancers bridge the gap into the industry by mentoring them through their high school and early college years. Alumni under her training have gone on to sign with leading talent agencies and join performing arts collegiate programs for Pace University, NYU, SDSU, and USC, to name a few. Brittany is currently represented by McDonald/Selznick Associates Talent Agency and is honored to be the new choreographer for the University of Pittsburgh’s nationally ranked dance team.
She looks forward to sharing her acquired knowledge with the new generation of young dancers and sends well wishes to all those competing this weekend!
