Early Life and Dance Career

Becoming a Dance Mom Superstar
In 2011 at age 13, Brooke was cast on Lifetime‘s new reality show Dance Moms. The show followed Brooke and her fellow "ALDC junior elite" teammates as they trained, competed, and dealt with the drama of the notoriously demanding dance teacher Abby Lee Miller.
