We all have our favorite reality TV show growing up, and mine happens to be Dance Moms.
Needless to say, there wouldn’t have been a Dance Moms without Abby Lee Miller, the lady who started it all! Even though she was extremely tough at times, you had to love her constructive criticism and famous saying, “save those tears for your pillow!” But, even more so, there wouldn’t have been a Dance Moms without the dancers.
Little sister to Maddie and one of the youngest on the show, Mackenzie was just about six years old when the show aired and was often reminded that she had huge shoes to fill considering her older sister.
Often compared to Maddie as they battled head to head for the #1 spot during her time on the show. Chloe was with the Abby Lee Dance Company since she was two years old and appeared on Dance Moms at age 9.
She started college at Pepperdine University, where she is studying integrated marketing with a minor in creative writing. She keeps fans updated on her progress and projects on her Youtube channel with over 2 million followers.
She is the founder of CBC (Chloe’s Book Club), where she and members discuss and devour different books monthly through Instagram live.
This month they’re reading “Serpent & Dove” by Shelby Mahurin!
In addition, she also has an Instagram page, @chloelukasiakwrites, where she shares her poetry, quotes of her liking, and holds Q&A’s about her experiences with writing thus far.
Known for her effortless death drop! Nia was just ten years old when she first appeared on the show, and we have seen her blossom throughout.
She is currently attending UCLA while also pursuing her singing and acting career. She appeared in the Off-Broadway production of Trip of Love, completed a multi-year run on CBS’ The Bold and the Beautiful, and is the lead in Brat TV’s series Sunnyside Up.
In 2020, she released her song, Low Key Love, and she currently has a podcast on Spotify called “Adulting with Teala & Nia” (Teala being her longtime friend), where they discuss how they’re handling adulthood.
Like Chloe, she stays in touch with fans through her Youtube channel, and like Maddie, you will see Nia on the big screen as she is starring in the Lifetime Original Movie, Imperfect High, airing on September 18th, 2021 on Lifetime TV.
The oldest of the bunch, who appeared on the show at 13 years old, often seemed to be tired of dancing and just wanted to enjoy a typical high school experience.
In 2013, she released an album, Brooke Hyland, and in 2019, she graduated from Ohio University with a marketing degree. She currently runs a popular food-themed Instagram page where she posts various foods from your favorite sushi to yummy desserts.
You can keep up with Brooke on her Youtube channel with frequent vlogs, reactions to her old Dance Mom solos, and updates on her life.
