Brittanie Brant, currently 18, was born in Colorado Springs, Colorado in 1996. She saw her first hip-hop class at the age of 7 and immediately fell in love with it. She joined her home studio, KGDC (Kathryn Grant’s Dance Connection), and started competitive dancing at the age of 9 for several years. When, Brittanie turned 13, multiple choreographers told her that if she wanted to make a career out of her talent and passion she would have to move to Los Angeles, California. So with the loving support of both of her parents, in November of 2009, they uprooted their lives and moved to LA for Brittanie to pursue her wildest of dreams.
Since then, Brittanie strives to chase her hopes and dreams day by day in this crazy town. She has been blessed to work on many projects throughout these past 6 years. Some including:
·Opening up the Kids Choice Awards with Will Smith (2010) and Todrick Hall (2014)
·Dancing as a featured cheerleader in the 2014 Madden 15 commercial with Kevin Hart and Dave Franco, along with several Professional Football players
·Back up dancing for Aloe Blacc’s Lincoln music video commercial “Love Is The Answer”
·Back up dancing for Pitbull on the season finale of X Factor (2013)
·Back up dancing for Nick Cannon in his Music Video “Lookin For A Dream”
·Featuring as one of the main dancers in Todrick Hall’s MTV series “Todrick”
Brittanie is humbled by every opportunity she has been given in her career and works as hard to one-day tour with a major artist or possibly become a major artist herself. She also sings, models, and acts and is inspired every single day by the immense pool of talent in this industry.
