Brandon Bryant Biography

Birthdate:July 26, 1989
Birthplace: Miami, Florida

Brandon Bryant proved to America that he’s got the moves when he landed the runner-up position on Season Five of So You Think You Can Dance. Check out Kidzworld’s biography on this hardworking and charismatic dancer.


Baby Steps

Brandon has been passionate about dance his whole life. At the age of ten he began his venture into the world of dance with ballet lessons. As he’s grown Brandon has sharpened his dancing skills, studying hip hop and specializing in contemporary. He attended Miami Dade College where he had a stint with the college’s Jubilation Dance Ensemble. He now lives in Salt Lake City where he’s a member of the professional dance company, Odyssey Dance Theatre.


Ain't Nothin' But A Number

Before wowing the SYTUCD judges on Season Five, Brandon tried out for season one. Unfortunately the minimum age requirement for a contestant is eighteen—Brandon was only fifteen. Brandon got the boot once the producers realized he was underage. But Brandon was persistent—he made it on to Season Four, but his dancing wasn’t up to par yet and he didn’t crack the final 20.


Dividing Dancer

Audiences loved Brandon’s smooth moves and winning smile—he always seemed to be enjoying himself on stage—but the judges were divided from the start. Debbie Murphy was a fan straight away and Mary Murphy was reduced to tears during Brandon’s first audition at the Orpheum in New York, but Lil’ C and Mia Michaels took some convincing. It was only after multiple weeks that they came around. In the end Brandon won over his haters, but still lost out to Jeanine Mason. Brandon was a gracious loser, though: “I did for a split second think that I could have a chance,” he said. “But I knew Jeanine was strong. This time was for he reach, not mine.”

    Here are my top 9 worst TV shows I have ever watched. 1. Breadwinners and Sanjay and Craig (tie) 2. Marvin Marvin 3.  Pickle and Peanut 4 Fred Figglehorn  5. Annoying Orange 6. Austin and Ally 7. Dog on a Blog 8. The Day My Butt Went Psycho (I'm not Canadian but it doesn't look like a good show) 9. Lab Rats  Basically every show that has a laugh track.  If you are looking for a good show, watch Doctor Who. No laugh tracks, humor is used properly, good storyline, DOESN'T take place in a school ALL OF THE TIME (well, it does in some episodes such as school reunion) The cast isn't full of teenagers and parents won't get so annoyed of the show. It's about a 900 year old time lord (who looks like a human) that travels in a TARDIS. He has 13 regenerations and almost always has a female companion with him. He is the last of his species so he's always lonely on Earth.

Plus he said MOST on cartoon Network. Not every show. I have to agree. There is better TV out there... Such as.... *takes deep breath* Doctor Who (Better than ALL of the trash they show on Disney Channel, Nickelodeon, and most cartoon network shows combined) Old spongebob (not the new spongebob episodes) Sherlock (hmmm I have never watched the show but i have heard it's awesome) I worship the BBC for making good things happen to the world.
