Bio_Body_Butler_222x800Brittany Butler is originally from New Jersey and began her training in Delaware at The Academy of the Dance. When she was 16, Brittany attended the North Carolina School of the Arts for her junior and senior years of high school. Upon graduation she was chosen to dance for a premier company, Missouri Ballet Theater, in St. Louis, Missouri under the direction of Adam Sage and Robert Philander. From there she joined the Lexington Ballet Company in Kentucky under the direction of Luis Dominguez. She performed soloist and principal roles in Firebird, Cinderella, and Giselle as well as repertoire performances. Brittany then took a contract with Cincinnati Ballet’s second company, where she was privileged to work with Victoria Morgan, Devon Carney, Johanna Bernstein Wilt, and Suzette Boyer Webb. Her favorite performances while there were Septime Webre's Alice in Wonderland and Devon Carney’s Concerto 4. Brittany was then offered a contract with the Dayton Ballet, under the direction of Karen Russo Burke. While in Dayton, Brittany has had the opportunity to perform in Gerald Arpino’s Reflections, as Wendy in Septime Webre's Peter Pan, in Jessica Lang’s From Foreign Lands and People, in Amy Seiwert’s Finding Almost, as Lilith in Karen Russo Burke’s Dracula: Bloodlines, as Lady Capulet in Septime Webre’s Romeo and Juliet, and in Gina Patterson’s You Are Here. Brittany is looking forward to entering into her fifth season with the company.
