Life and career

After her family relocated to Hawaii, Bicondova studied at a local studio where she took up jazz-funk and hip hop styles of dance. By age 11, she had become an "Elite Protegé" for The PULSE on Tour dance convention, traveling the country as an assistant to some of the nation's top teachers and choreographers.
Bicondova garnered mainstream attention in the 2012 dance-drama film Battlefield America. That same year, her all-girl dance group 8 Flavahz was runner-up in the seventh season of America's Best Dance Crew.
In 2014, Bicondova was cast as the young Selina Kyle on Fox's television series Gotham. She earned a Saturn Award nomination for Best Performance by a Younger Actor in a Television Series for season 1.

Also in 2014, she was in the "Enjoy the Ride" music video by Krewella.
