Brandon Talbott was a guest dancer at Candy Apple's Dance Center and part of Cathy's all-boy team, the "Apple Cores." Outside the show, he has been a member of Studio Bleu Dance Center.


Season Three

Other information

  • He had problems with a broken sesamoid foot injury throughout almost all of 2014.[6][7] He was back to performing normally in 2015.
  • He started dancing when he was nine.[8]
  • His favorite duets have been with Bella and Kaeli.[9]
  • Before being cast on Dance Moms, he auditioned for AUDC (which was called My Kid Can Dance during that period of development.) [10]
  • His father, Gary Talbott, is a musician. Brandon used to be pretty good with a trumpet and learned some guitar, but has largely given them up.[11]
  • He says Cathy is a really sweet person, but they edit things and make her do things to make her look horrible, including going into the ALDC dressing room to pick fights.[12] He says the first episodes were very fun,[13], but things got steadily worse. Cathy eventually told him that producers had been trying to make him have a meltdown, [14] and he didn't enjoy his time working with Anthony.[15]
  • He and his family quit the show, because of the drama, and a lack of solos and duets for him.[16] This included the show trying to get his father into arguments.[17]
  • He was closest with Nick Daniels, but considered Zack to be kind of the leader of the Apple Core.[18]
  • Some of his favorite dancers are Sophia Lucia, Kalani Hilliker, Issac Lupien, Joey Arrigo, Alex Wong, and Ricky Ubeda.[19]
  • In 2015, Brandon finished as first runner-up for National Teen Male Outstanding Dancer at NYCDA's National Finale.[20] Elsewhere, he was Mr. Starpower (15-19) at their Myrtle Beach Nationals.[21]

  12. "Cathy is a very very sweet person. The producers edit things and make her do things to make her look horrible. Now they don't give people scripts or anything, but they set things up to happen, but almost everything they say is real. Like when Cathy got water thrown on her for example. The producers made her go into her dressing numerous times to annoy ALDC. The last time she went in they locked the door behind her until the drama happened.They didn't tell ALDC that she would go in that many times. So tempers flared and water flew. Again, that situation was very edited. Sorry I just gave you like this massive speech lol. :P"
  14. Q: "I heard the producers of Dance Moms where trying to make you have an meltdown and if its true how did you find out" Brandon Talbott: "Yea that's true and Cathy eventually told me."
