Apprentice Pilates Instructor
Brittney Coughlin first discovered Pilates when she was recovering from a foot injury received in dance. For her, it was a method of rehabilitation that was unlike any other she had worked with in her movement career. Brittney graduated with a degree in dance performance and choreography from Hope College, in which she received the Distinguished Artist Award 4 years in a row.
Professionally, she has danced with the Aerial Dance Company, Mikautadze Dance Theater, Dance Kontemporary, and the Fort Wayne Dance Collective Touring Company. In addition, she has travelled the country judging for dance and show choir competitions, and theater productions.
Currently, she is a continuing lecturer at IPFW in dance and a Fort Wayne Dance Collective outreach instructor for five local Fort Wayne Community Schools.
Besides the amazing results Pilates has for dancers, Brittney’s favorite thing about Pilates is “the combination of stretching, strengthening, and stabilizing all in one.” “I love watching clients grow in awareness, and seeing them leave empowered and truly changed inside and out.”
As you can imagine, Brittney excels and enjoys working most with the dance population. In her free time, she enjoys spending time with her granddaughter, Violet.
