Deanna Doyle is the fourth generation in her family to be a professional performing artist, starting with her great-great- aunts, who had a sister act on the vaudeville circuit.
Deanna grew up at Broadway Dance Center, where her mother was tapper Judy Bassing's teaching assistant. In addition to BDC, Deanna trained at the School of American Ballet and American Ballet Theatre. She performed in New York City Ballet's The Nutcracker and then joined Kansas City Ballet, dancing notable roles including Drew Drop in The Nutcracker and The Cowgirl in Agnes de Mille's Rodeo, as well other principal and soloist roles in works by Twyla Tharp, Donald McKayle, Lynne Taylor-Corbet, Karole Armitage, and Paul Taylor.
Deanna has been in productions of All Shook Up, Oklahoma, Anything Goes, Crazy for You, 42nd Street, Drowsy Chaperone, and gave up her ticket to Vegas for Season 8 of So You Think You Can Dance to perform the leading role of Vera in On Your Toes.
She was seen in On Your Toes at City Center Encores!, Barrington Stage's On the Town as Ivy Smith, directed by John Rando and choreographed by Josh Bergasse, and made her Broadway debut as Meg Giry in Phantom of the Opera. Recently she performed the role of 17-year-old Winnie Foster in the Broadway-bound Tuck Everlasting, directed and choreographed by Casey Nicholaw.
She has performed Pat Birch's "Moon-Faced" duet at the Astaire Awards, Josh Bergasse's On the Town pas de deux at Career Transitions for Dancers, and is a current member of American Dance Machine for the 21st Century, having performed at the Joyce works such as Jerry Mitchell's "Pick Yourself Up," Marge and Gower Champion's duet "Someone to Watch Over Me," and Jerome Robbins' "Mr. Monotony."
