Brittany Butler is a New Jersey native and began her training at The Academy of the Dance in Wilmington, Delaware. At the age of 16 Brittany wanted to further her education and training and decided to attend North Carolina School of the Arts. Upon graduation she was chosen to perform with a premier company, Missouri Ballet Theater, in St. Louis, under the direction of Adam Sage and Robert Philander. She then joined the Lexington Ballet Company in Kentucky under the direction of Luis and Nancy Dominguez where she enjoyed two years of hard work. From here Brittany found Dayton Ballet and felt there were many possibilities that fit her needs in life.
