Heather grew up in Cincinnati, Ohio where she began her dance training at The School for Creative and Performing Arts. After performing professionally in San Francisco, Heather returned to her hometown to perform, choreograph, and teach.
Britt's choreographic reach spans from work for professional ballet companies to commercial dance choreography to flashmobs and community performances. She has had the opportunity to choreograph contemporary ballet works for multiple organizations including Cincinnati Ballet and Nashville Ballet, theatrical productions for Playhouse in The Park, and commercial choreography for Zone Perfect Bars, Secret Deodorant, and Fleetwood Mac through Lightborne.
The Cincinnati Enquirer has called Heather’s work “mesmerizing”, “exuberant”, “moving”, “eloquent” and “heartbreaking”.
Heather is the Owner and Artistic Director of HBDC and DANCEFIX, a wildly popular dance workout class offered at Cincinnati Ballet, DANCEFIX Blue Ash, and Nashville Ballet. The New York Times has recommended her classes for out-of-town visitors and Cincinnati's CityBeat named DANCEFIX "the best damn dance workout" in the city as well as "best dance classes" of 2023. Heather also served as a full time dance faculty member at Northern Kentucky University from 2008-2016.
In 2022, Britt was recognized as a Cincinnati Enquirer Woman of the Year as well as Equality of Ohio's Southwest Ally. The City of Cincinnati also recognized Heather for her continuous work in the community during Women's History Month. Britt is a YWCA Rising Star and in 2015 she was named as “one to watch” in Cincinnati Magazine’s Future of Cincinnati edition.
