Brooklyn began her adventures with dance when, at the age of 2, she declared that she needed to be on stage while watching a friend's recital. She started competition clogging that year and branched into several other disciplines as she grew both in age and ability. By the age of 9 she had left her clogging and pom-pom roots for the love of jazz, contemporary, and modern styles. With a firm but creative grasp on her own technical and artistic skills, she began choreographing parts of her solo routines and having an input in team dances by the age of 10.
Always fearless and willing to try anything, Brooklyn continued to compete throughout her childhood and into adulthood. With several national competition titles underwear sleeve, the love of this artistic sport has remained her diving force. It was a natural transition for Brooklyn to move into the role of teaching and assistant choreographer after her senior year. In working with students of all abilities, she's found a deeper love for the art and teaching beauty and technique through physical expression.
In December 2018, Brooklyn moved away from "home" to start a new life with her Navy husband, Jorden, and their fur-baby, Charley. Never on for idleness, she may be found most days in a studio dancing and developing new choreography for the simple love of dancing. When she visits home - Denver, NC - it's not uncommon to find her back at her old barre and hanging out with her dance sisters in the studio she grew to love as a younger dancer.
Brooklyn is thrilled for her second year being a part of the SSDA family!
