‘Black-ish’ Star Miles Brown Says He's Ready to Do ‘Dancing with the Stars’

We all know Miles Brown as the lovable Jack Johnson on ABC's Black-ish, but when he isn't making everyone laugh, he's either working on his music or entertaining fans with his killer dance moves.

Yep, that's right. The 16-year-old actor is a triple threat, and as it turns out, Brown was actually a contestant on Dancing with the Stars: Juniors in 2018. The actor and his partner, Rylee Arnold, placed second in the competition after impressing the judges with their stellar techniques and stage presence. Now, roughly three years later, Brown has confirmed that he's down to do it all over again—this time, on Dancing with the Stars.

PureWow recently sat down with the young star, who is now partnering with Crest and Oral-B for their Conquer Cavities 2Gether initiative. When we asked Brown about the possibility of joining Dancing with the Stars in the future, he said that he was all for it, adding, "I love Dancing with the Stars so much."  

While speaking about his experience on DWTS Juniors, he said, "I've always watched it growing up, but being asked to be on the show was just crazy. As soon as I got on, I just fell in love with everyone on set and I fell in love with the way that we did it. It was a really fun environment for me to be in. As soon as we left the set and we were done with the competition, it was so weird because I missed having to wake up early to practice."

He continued, "Every time I watched the show, I didn't think they actually prepared for everything they did, but they really do. I remember I had to wake up at seven in the morning and, every day, go into the studio to practice for five hours. So I can really understand the grind and the practice that they put into every episode."

Given his amazing dance skills, we wouldn't be surprised to see Brown show off his moves on DWTS. But aside from discussing his love of the show, he also detailed the inspiration behind his new partnership with Crest and Oral-B. He told us, "I really want to inspire a lot of my younger cousins to start brushing their teeth better. They already are, but I think this is the perfect way to show them."
