Brittany Balise

Jazz / Hip Hop Teacher

Brittany Balise holds a bachelor's degree in business management and a minor in psychology from Adelphi University. Education has been a major priority in her life, but the performing arts will always be her passion. At the age of 2, she began dancing at Central Park Dance Studio. Brittany studied dance there for 15 years. In 2012, she became a dance instructor for children between the ages of 2-7, in the styles of ballet and hip-hop. Brittany feels forever grateful that she is able to use her creative platform to enhance her dance student's experiences in the art of dance. For the past 3 years, Brittany has been a member and a choreographer for the dance ministry at Living Word Christian Church. The LWCC dance ministry has given her the opportunity to put her heart and soul into dancing, and brought new light unto praising God through various dance productions. Brittany has also sparked a new flame, through the art of ballroom dance at Dance With Me Studios. She hopes to keep training in ballroom and eventually compete in the near future. Her passion for the art and dance has given her many wonderful opportunities and she is looking forward to joining the staff at Jeté Dance Studio.
