Heather Morris lit up the screen as recurring character Brittany S. Pierce on Glee, especially whenever she did a dance number.  (Her Britney Spears imitation remains the best we’ve ever seen!)  Not surprisingly, she comes from a strong dance background, and even toured as one of Beyonce’s dancers before landing the Glee gig.  Will that [...]
