Veteran // 4th year Team Captain


My name is BriAnna, and I am so thankful to have returned for my 4th season as Captain of the GCC! I have been dancing since the age of 5, and thank Ann Szymaniak & the staff at The Dance Connection for my training. My journey with the Gotham City Cheerleaders began in 2012, and I’m honored to share the title of Captain with my bestfriend, Kaitlyn. It’s such a blessing to be able to pursue what I love to do with an amazing group of talented women. The past three seasons on this team have taught me so much, and I cannot wait to see what this season holds in store!
I grew up in a small town in Upstate, NY and currently reside there. I’ve been dancing my entire life and began teaching classes by the age 15. When I’m not in the city supporting Big Blue, I’m teaching dance at two different studios in the area, one of which I am the assistant director of. There is nothing like sharing your passion with others, and in my opinion, teaching is the most rewarding way to do that!
This past summer, I had the opportunity to join a new dance company called Galumpha. We are a trio of performers that combine stunning acrobatics, striking visual effects, physical comedy & inventive choreography to bring life to a world of imagination through our performances.
The GCC has definitely become a part of who I am as a person, and the word ‘grateful’ can not even begin to explain how I feel. From traveling internationally, performing on countless television shows, being a part of Bruno Mar’s Super Bowl Halftime Show, and most importantly creating lifelong bonds with my cheer sisters… I am beyond proud to say that I am a part of the Pro Cheer Industry.
I’d like to thank my family, friends, mentors, & fans for the continued support of our GCC mission.
