Career of Sabrina Bryan
Sabrina Bryan’s career was set even before she finished her education. Her natural talent for acting, singing, and entertaining made it clear that she should pursue a career in the performing arts. In the television film ‘Mrs Santa Claus,’ she made her début opposite Angela Lansbury in 1996. She appeared in episodes of ‘The Bold and the Beautiful,’ ‘The Geena Davis Show,’ ‘The Jersey,’ and ‘Grounded For Life,’ among others.
Her big break came when she was invited to join ‘The Cheetah Girls,’ a Disney-created music group. She was then cast in the film of the same name, which was released in 2003. She was complimented and appreciated for her acting ability, along with three other members. The film’s soundtrack was certified double platinum.
The trio took their performance on the road after the popularity of ‘The Cheetah Girls,’ touring and producing albums. She, like the other members, became well-known as ‘Dorinda,’ the persona she played in the film.
The Cheetah Girls released their first album, ‘Cheetah-licious Christmas,’ in 2005. It was a Christmas album with eight classic Christmas carols and five fresh compositions. To promote their album, the group embarked on the Cheetah-licious Christmas Tour.
Her solo project, a DVD workout called ‘BYOU,’ was released in 2005. The DVD, which was aimed towards young girls, sold over a quarter million copies. Sabrina released the song ‘Byou’ in response to the DVD’s success. The song was included in the ‘Radio Disney: Move It’ CD the following year. In 2009, she released the sequel, ‘BYOU 2,’ which contained the song ‘C’mon’ on the soundtrack.
‘The Cheetah Girls 2’ was released in 2006 as a sequel to the film ‘The Cheetah Girls.’ The movie shattered all box office records. The film became the most watched Disney Channel original movie, surpassing ‘High School Musical’, thanks to its platinum-certified songs.
Sabrina, along with other members of the band, embarked on the ‘The Party’s Just Begun Tour,’ celebrating the success of their second film and the band as a whole. The group’s official debut studio album, ‘TCG,’ was released on September 25, 2007. They debuted the first song, ‘So Bring It On,’ on Radio Disney exactly a month before the album’s release. The second single, ‘Fuego,’ was released ten days before the album’s release.
The concluding film in The Cheetah Girls trilogy, ‘The Cheetah Girls: One World,’ was released in 2008. The film, dubbed “The Cheetah Girls 3,” premiered on Disney Channel. Sabrina appeared in both the straight-to-DVD picture ‘Mostly Ghostly’ and the comedy feature ‘Help Me, Help You’ in the same year. She also collaborated on a novel with Julia DeVillers, titled ‘Princess of Gossip.’
Sabrina and the rest of the band embarked on a ‘One World Tour’ following the success of the film trilogy and their debut studio album. The Cheetah Girls disbanded in 2009. In 2010, she voiced Pamela Hamster in the animated Disney Channel series ‘Fish Hooks’ for the two episodes ‘Hooray for Hamsterwood’ and ‘Pamela Hamster Returns.’
While Sabrina’s role as ‘Dorinda’ and as a member of ‘The Cheetah Girls’ brought her a lot of fame and attention, it was her appearance on season 5 of ‘Dancing with the Stars’ in 2007 that cemented her place in the public eye.
Sabrina was one of the leading candidates for the prize, along with professional dancer Mark Ballas. Despite being the highest-scoring performer in the first, third, and fourth weeks of the show, her performance in the sixth week garnered the lowest rating. To make matters worse, she was voted off, a move that surprised not just the judges, but also the other candidates and the live audience.
She returns to the show with her partner Mark Ballas for the final week of season 5 of ‘Dancing with the Stars.’ She was the first participant to perform a guest appearance in the penultimate week as a result of this. She was selected as one of the contestants for the fifteenth season of ‘Dancing with the Stars’ in 2012. This time, she was teamed with Louis van Amstel, a seasoned ballroom dancer. Interestingly, despite a perfect score of 30, she was eliminated in the sixth week of this season as well. Furthermore, her season five elimination day, October 30, fell on the same day as her season five elimination day.
She was a celebrity correspondent for E! News’ behind-the-scenes look at season 8 of Dancing with the Stars and TV Guide’s show Reality Chat, in addition to being a contestant in seasons five and fifteen of the ‘Dancing with the Stars’ show. She was the show’s backstage host from season 9 through season 12. She also spoke with the Season 10 show’s winners. She was one of the celebrity dancers in the Tropicana Resort and Casino’s Live Dancing with the Stars Las Vegas Show in 2012.
