Fifteen at the time Dance Moms launched, Brooke Hyland is the oldest dancer on the show. Brooke is Kelly's daughter. Brooke's younger sister, Paige also trains and competes with Brooke at Abby Lee Dance Company.
In addition to dancing with the troupe, Brooke is a model with Cicci Dance and has a song, "Summer Love," available on iTunes. Brooke and the other dancers created a music video directed by Abby for the song.
Brooke has said she would like to perform with Cirque du Soleil when she grows up. But she has also said her favorite thing about dancing is being with her friends.
On Dance Moms Brooke is frequently in the bottom of the weekly skill rankings. In Season Two, Brooke briefly quit dancing to pursue cheerleading. At the beginning of Season Three, Brooke's mother Kelly took her out of the dance company to protest what she considered unfair treatment. Brooke returned to Dance Moms half way through the third season.
