My name is BriAnna Barnett and I have been dancing for 17 years. I began my training when I was 5 years old, at The Dance Connection in Binghamton, NY. I trained in various styles such as contemporary, jazz, ballet, tap, hip hop, acro and modern. For all four years of highschool, I cheered on the Varsity team and loved football season more than anything! Dancing has always been my passion, and the one thing I’ve always known I never wanted to stop doing. After graduating high school, I began teaching dance at my home studio Step Up and Dance in Greene, NY. I took class focusing on my ballet technique with Tina Christina Price. It was 2012 when I auditioned for the Gotham City Cheerleaders and was then named Captain of the team. It’s been an amazing journey so far, and I can’t wait to see what the future holds!

Ballet Shoes. I love taking ballet more than anything on this planet.

Favorite sneakers to dance in?
I prefer to dance in socks over anything else.
