Whether he’s on the stage or off, our Brody makes an impact everywhere he goes. I feel so grateful that dance has come into his life. It’s changed him in so many ways and amplified the vivacious spirit he’s always had. These opportunities have allowed him to meet so many people, go to so many places, boost his confidence, and make real connections with people from all over the world. Like, what?! I do think of Brody as a trailblazer, forging his own path to pursue his dreams at such a young age. It inspires all of us to do the same, love ourselves, and step into our spotlight!
Following His Own Path
When we were kids, it was so easy to just follow the group. To do what everyone else was doing. It felt safe and comfortable. It takes a lot to forge your own path. Courage, confidence, trust in your own capabilities—these are all of the qualities I see in Brody.
He’s always marched to the beat of his own drum and been a true individual. Whether that was wearing princess dresses to the grocery store or taking the leap (pun intended) to pursue dance, he’s done what his heart has called him to, no questions asked. It inspires me to go after what I’m passionate about with the same bold, fearless energy!

Making a Name for Himself
From that one decision to pursue dance, he’s never looked back. Seeing him make a name for himself and carve out his own little slice of the dance world is so exciting. He makes real connections with people, whether they’re fellow dancers or fans on Instagram.
Brody’s been able to learn so much from dance—partnership, self-esteem, teamwork—and apply those skills to every project he gets to work on. From creating our own Tiktoks to interviewing celebrities on the red carpet, on every project he’s able to express his love for dance and entertainment in a variety of ways.
Sharing Dance With Others
There’s something really special not only about Brody finding his own space in the industry, but helping others do the same. Just by being himself, unabashedly and unapologetically, our little guy has created a safe space for others to follow in his path.
His passion for dance has sparked that passion inside other tiny dancers! I have goosebumps just thinking about it. Even outside of the dance world, so many people still connect with his infectious spirit and joie de vivre. I really do think he’s making such a positive impact on this planet! My hope is that it encourages all of us to do the same. Remember to be your own trailblazer!
