Encore Dance hires Universal Studios’ ‘Cindy Lou Who’

Brittani Henderson

GEARHART — Encore Dance Studio is excited to announce that its family of teachers has grown.

“We’ve stolen Christmas! Well, maybe not Christmas, just Cindy Lou Who!” Encore wrote.

The studio’s newest teacher, Brittany Henderson, comes all the way from Los Angeles, where she played Cindy Lou Who at Universal Studios.

“She’s so excited to be dancing here with us and is already working her magic in some Hip Hop, Musical Theater and Jazz classes,” the dance studio said.

Specializing in Street Jazz and Hip Hop, Henderson has danced and studied musical theater in various cities for 15 years. At 16, she began teaching all levels of Hip Hop to children ages 6 and up. Henderson immediately fell in love with teaching dance to kids and made it her career.

Children respond well to her high energy, friendly and animated personality and enjoy her teaching style. Dancing and performing at Universal Studios Hollywood, Millennium Dance Complex and Debbie Reynolds Studios, Henderson has danced with top choreographers including Jayson Wright, Shane Sparks and Casper Smart.

“Brittani is a new mom to a beautiful little girl who’s enrolled in dance at Encore this fall,” the studio wrote. “She is excited to be a part of the Encore team, and she’s looking forward to inspiring children in the studio.”
