Introduction Statement

World Record Holder for Acrobatic Archery / Contortionist / Hand Balancer Ever since a young age, Brittany loved finding the tallest trees to climb and the narrowest structures to balance from. It was no surprise that gymnastics ended up being the perfect fit to channel her creative and adventurous energy into. For twelve years Brittany competed nationally and internationally in the sport of gymnastics. At the age of 18, Brittany decided to retire from competition but was not done being physical and creative with her body. In 2005, she was asked to join Do Jump! Extremely Physical Theatre, and performed and toured as an ensemble member with the company for the next 7 years. While working with Do Jump!, Brittany was given the opportunity to hone her acrobatic, aerial, and performance skills. Now, Brittany works primarily as a solo artist, and is recognized as one of the most unique and thrilling acts existing today. The New York Times has deemed her act as “beautiful, exciting, and fun.” Brittany has trained hand balancing with Cory Tabino (Cirque du Soleil) and Yury Bozyan (École Nationale de Cirque), and is also skilled in aerial work, tumbling, and stilt walking. Brittany’s act and skills are appropriate for many occasions, including variety shows, cabarets, fairs, festivals, and corporate events. Here are some of the companies, venues, and events Brittany has performed for: Do Jump! Extremely Physical Theatre Friedrichsbau Varieté Wanderlust Circus Circus Project Night Flight Aerial Teatro Zinzanni Wonder World Entertainment AEP Productions Girl Circus Circus Artemis Clowns Without Borders Fist of Dishonor Beacher’s Madhouse The Late Show with David Letterman Amazon Microsoft Nike Intel NASCAR Superbowl XLVII (NFL private event) The Academy Awards (private event) Ritter Sport Susan B.
