At the age of two, Maddie Ziegler knew she had a passion for performing on stage.

Raised in Pittsburgh, Penn., Maddie’s mother Melissa enrolled her and her younger sister Mackenzie in the Abby Lee Dance Company. Little did they know, a few years later their dance studio would be famously known and the trio would be starring in the award-winning Lifetime reality series Dance Moms.

 The result of the show’s immense popularity led 14-year- old Maddie to segue into becoming an internet sensation. Starring in singer-songwriter Sia’s music videos and North American tour, Ziegler has had the honor of performing the artistic contemporary routines on SNL, The Grammy’s (2015), The Ellen DeGeneres Show (three times), The Voice, We Can Survive at the Hollywood Bowl, Dancing with the Stars and Jimmy Kimmel Live!

The dance prodigy is quickly making a name for herself as an aspiring actress with buzz-worthy roles on hit television shows such as Pretty Little Liars, Austin & Ally and Nicky, Ricky, Dicky & Dawn.

Maddie lent her voice to Weinstein’s animated feature Leap! with Elle Fanning; slated to release August 30, 2017. She will be making her big screen debut in Focus Features’ The Book of Henry starring opposite Naomi Watts and directed by Colin Trevorrow. The drama is set to hit theaters June 16, 2017.

Maddie is the youngest judge on FOX’s So You Think You Can Dance: The Next Generation. She is also a fashion designer and author. Maddie unveiled her first clothing line Maddie for girls and juniors, and her memoir The Maddie Diaries was released March 7, 2017. Aladdin Books will release a trilogy of Young Adult novels about competitive dance, written by Ziegler; with the first book The Audition currently available for pre-order and in the series hitting bookstores in October 31, 2017.

In 2016 Maddie took home a People’s Choice Award, winning the DailyMail.com Seriously Popular Award and the Teen Choice Award for Choice Dancer. She went on tour with Sia in late 2016.

With a feature film debut, TV series appearances, a book series and memoir, a world tour, and a successful clothing line all under her belt – not to mention her millions of followers on Twitter and Instagram – Maddie is already taking the world by storm.
