Netflix’s ‘Dance 100’ is one of the best shows for street dancing and choreographing. The sheer determination shown by the contestants to make a name for themselves and create unforgettable dance routines is nothing short of exhilarating to watch. However, few can attain the title of a winner like Brandi Chun. Her performance throughout the first season of the competition captivated the attention of the dancers and viewers alike, which helped her attain her goal. Naturally, her fans are interested to know where the reality TV star is these days, and we are here to answer the same!
Brandi Chun’s Dance 100 Journey
Entering the first season of ‘Dance 100’ alongside seven other participants, Brandi Chun was ready to execute her vision and shine better and brighter than everyone else. Her first choreography on the show was meant for herself and seven other dancers. The resulting performance allowed her to progress to the next round of 14 dancers. This time, her skills helped her evade the double elimination and be a shoo-in for the third level, where she was given a team of 20 talented dancers.
Shining brightly throughout the competition, Brandi became one of the semi-finalists. For the penultimate round, all the participants had to prepare two routines for 25 dancers each. The first dance was meant to represent a particular decade assigned to the participant, and Brandi was given the 1960s. Having grown up as a 90’s baby, the task was far from simple for the dancer, yet she did her research, put her faith in her team, and gave viewers a mind-blowing show.
Brandi had to tell a story based on a prompt for the second dance in the semi-finals. As expected, the theme of a novice into the world of the underground circus was far from easy. Nevertheless, the aspiring choreographer let her imagination run, created a routine that had her shine as the ringmaster, and gave her fellow dancers a chance to shine. Due to such splendid performances, Brandi gained over half of the votes from the Dance 100 crew, securing her position as a finalist.
Brandi Chun had to compete with Keenan Cooks for the finale and prepare two routines for 50 and 100 dancers, respectively. Before preparation, she also heard words of encouragement from her family in Hawaii, which only filled her with even more determination. As one can guess, all the performances for the final showdown were jaw-dropping. However, given Brandi’s consistency in quality and leadership skills, she gained an overwhelming majority of votes and became the winner of ‘Dance 100’ season 1.
