If Brody’s taught us anything, it’s that even the smallest things can make the biggest difference. Our tiny dancer has made his mark on our world with his larger-than-life personality, passion, and sincere joy for life. You don’t need to be a dancer like Brody to feel the pure happiness that radiates from him—and to spread it yourself!
Finding Happiness Within
Brody finds joy in the simplest things. Aside from dance, he finds happiness around every corner—with our dogs, our family movie nights, playing in the pool, and seeing his friends. All of these things make him who he is and provide him with that extra burst of energy and love that he shares through dance. Above all, his happiness starts at home. Rather than looking for it in material things, it’s the things and people he loves most that fuels him.
I’m still in awe of the impact our little guy has on his community! (a six-year-old with a community—it’s crazy). To read the messages and see the love that people have for him never fails to give me goosebumps. With his zest for life, he encourages others to do the same—to find happiness in their own life, the passions that inspire them, and spread it to others. With so much going on in the world, it’s easy to get caught up in your own problems and stress. Our hope is that Brody helps make those problems go away, even if it’s only for 30 seconds. To help remind you of happiness, how amazing it feels to smile, and how easy it is to share that with others.

Paying It Forward
It’s all about giving back. Brody is an incredible reminder that gift-giving isn’t all about material things. Often, the best gift you can give is kindness. Love, joy, thoughtfulness, and simple gestures can make the biggest difference to a person. You never know what people are going through. Your best day could be someone’s worst. In Brody’s corner of the world, we aim to make every day as great as it can be so that his videos and his dancing can find the people who need to see them the most. I hope Brody’s joy inspires you to pay it forward. To carry his happiness with you and share it with the people in your community. One small kind act can truly influence the world!
