What Makes Brynn Rumfallo So Special
Brynn is an incredibly talented dancer with a strong background in ballet dancing. As a dancer, she has received many accolades and won many awards. She even managed to impress Abby Lee Miller, who is hardly ever seen making positive comments about her students, with her performance. Abby's assistant choreographer Gianna Martello also admitted that Brynn is a versatile dancer and can be the "next big thing". Many of the fans of the show ‘Dance Moms’ were impressed by her performance, and some of them even didn't like the comparison between her and Maddie, stating that she is a great dancer in her own right. While it is always a concern among the audience of reality shows as to how much of the competition is "real", Brynn has won many real competitions outside of Dance Moms.
Brynn Rumfallo faced a lot of difficulty in establishing herself as one of the primary members of the dance reality show Dance Moms despite her superior performances. ALDC coach Abby Miller is well-known for having favorites among her students, and after her longtime favorite Maddie Ziegler decided to leave the show, she found a new favorite in Brynn. That, however, didn't go well with the other moms on the show, who all wanted their daughters to fill in the gap. As such, they kept bullying Brynn and her mother Ashlee, who has a reputation for not being a team player. Even when Abby officially offered Brynn her team jacket after she won a challenge to get into the ALDC team, many of the moms expressed their unhappiness over her inclusion and didn't even congratulate her. During a competition, Brynn was nervous about doing a male-female duel. However, when her male partner refused to go on-stage, the other moms blamed it on Brynn even though later it was revealed that despite being uncomfortable at first, Brynn was ready back-stage.
