Kris danced as a child for four years, from eight years old until she was twelve. A friend originally suggested that Brianna, 13, take a dance class and from there the entire family became involved in her dance career. Kris says that Brianna loves the entertainment field and everyone around her is very supportive of her efforts and goals. Her advice to her daughter for "Abby's Ultimate Dance Competition" is to stay strong, stay focused and have fun. If they win the $100,000 prize, Kris says Brianna would like to make a donation to Make a Wish Foundation and they would also put some aside for when she gets older. Kris and Brianna currently live in Temecula, California.
