Series Description: Rhythm Abroad with Brittany Pierce is a travel series that is sure to transport viewers into the heart and soul of a culture. The series follows the journey of Brittany Pierce, a young woman who is fascinated with traveling and meeting new people of different cultures despite language barriers, as she explores the world while connecting with people through dance and music.In the inaugural season of Rhythm Abroad, Brittany traverses the globe, taking viewers from the South Pacific to Europe. Along her journey she reaches Tahiti, Southern Spain, the Swiss Alps and Southern Canada. In each episode, Brittany fully immerses herself into the local culture by experiencing the fun and challenges of learning to dance to the beat of each country. Whether it's learning to swing her hips with the people of Tahiti or dancing in a pow-wow with the Blackfoot First Nations people, she does it all even if she looks like a blundering amateur at times. Wherever Brittany is in the world, she finds dance and music to be the universal languages that bridge cultural divides and unite humanity.
