Brittany Klinger

Brittany Klinger comes to us by way of Kaneohe, Hawaii, and has been living in Lexington, VA, for the past year. Originally from Charleston, WV, Brittany has been dancing since she was 3 years old. She formally danced for 15 years at Regina’s Studio of Dance, later turned Lee’s Studio of Dance after Regina’s passing. Dance is a way of life for her. It has helped her navigate numerous life transitions and emotions, including grief and loss. During her time with Regina/Lee’s Studio of Dance she took numerous different dance classes ranging from ballet/pointe, tap, baton, lyrical, beginners modern, swing, salsa, musical theater, to hip-hop. Hip-hop became one of her favorites, as she loves the energy and freedom of movement within the style. Brittany danced on a hip-hop battle team for 3 years called 8 Nations. She danced competitively with hip-hop, musical theater, and lyrical for 4 years.Brittany took a break from formal dance in college and received her B.S. in Psychology from Marshall University and her M.S. in Counseling Psychology from the University of Kansas. One of her goals is to marry the two and be able to provide moving through your emotions classes or workshops, as she deeply feels “movement is medicine for the soul”. She has always wanted to dive back into dance and share the gift of dance with others. Halestone has been a welcoming and inclusive place for Brittany to jump back in and she has enjoyed dancing with Adult Ensemble this past year. She is looking forward to teaching this coming year!
