About Brittany Conigatti:
Brittany is a born and raised New Yorker! She is a graduate of Fiorello H. LaGuardia High School of Music & Art and Performing Arts, known to many as "The Fame School," where she was a Dance Major. Brittany continued her art studies at the American Musical and Dramatic Academy, where she was an Integrated Major and then earned her BFA in Musical Theatre from The New School.
Landing her first professional job at 17 and feeling the rush of adrenaline, passion, family, and love, both on and off stage, Brittany knew Broadway would be her career! Along with performing on Broadway in A Bronx Tale (dance captain and original company member) and The Prom, Brittany has worked in the most prestigious regional theatres and traveled all over the nation and Canada performing with Broadway National Tours including Mean Girls, Matilda, Disney's Beauty and the Beast, and on the high seas with Rock of Ages. She can also be seen as Maria Ferraro in Law & Order: Special Victims Unit, Season 22.
Brittany's latest journey has been being the Restager Choreographer for the 2nd National Tour of A Bronx Tale after being the Assistant Choreographer on the 1st National Tour of A Bronx Tale. She has found a passion for being on the "other side of the table" where she gets to be within the creative development of a show. This is all thanks to her mentor, Sergio Trujillo.
Brittany adores teaching passionate performers! Whether it be in master class settings or privately during coaching, Brittany always has the goal to bring out each student's uniqueness. She takes pride in providing a positive and encouraging learning environment where the students feel comfortable working at their highest potential!
