Rise to Stardom
Bostyn Brown began dancing at the age of three, following her older sisters Kenedy and Brynklie, who were dancers at Club Dance Studio in Arizona. She competed in her first solo at the age of six, and by the time she was eight years old, she was already participating in various state-level dance competitions all around her home state of Arizona. A few years later, she began participating in national level competitions across the United States.
She first gained media attention in 2013, when she and four of her friends from Club Dance Studio – Dylynn Jones, Brynn Rumfallo, Jenna Valenzuela, and Jaycee Wilkins – formed the dance troupe 'Fresh Faces', mentored by their dance teacher Alexa Moffett, and auditioned for the eighth season of NBC network reality television show, 'America's Got Talent'. They soon became the fan favorites, but failed to win the competition after being eliminated in the quarter-finals following appearances in three episodes. They next began posting pictures and videos of them on social media, dancing as a group, which earned them a huge online fan base. She later created a YouTube channel and began posting vlog videos every Saturdays, even though she is less active on YouTube currently. She has 96k followers on Instagram.
