Maddie Ziegler got her start on the popular reality show Dance Moms. Since then, she’s starred in singer Sia’s music videos and has branched out into acting. But what else is there to know about the dancer? Here’s the stunning transformation of Maddie Ziegler.
When someone is as much of a talent as Maddie Ziegler is, it’s not exactly surprising to learn that they’ve been doing what they love for years. So it should come as no shock to discover that the award-winning star has been dancing since she was a toddler.
In an interview with Complex, Maddie explained that she’s been a dancer for the majority of her life. She explained,
“I started dancing when I was two. I went to the ballet studio for like a year and I actually wanted to do hip-hop so I went to try it out, but I ended up doing a lot of tap, ballet and jazz.”
Having started when she was 2 years old, it’s likely that Maddie can’t even remember a time in her life when she wasn’t dancing, and that certainly comes across when she’s on stage.
Maddie Ziegler didn’t only start dancing when she was young, but she also started to throw her hat in the competition ring early-on as well. Before Maddie was on Dance Moms, the young star-in-the-making appeared on the reality show Live To Dance, which was hosted by Paula Abdul. The short-lived show was only around for one season, totaling seven episodes. As seen in a promotional clip for the show, Abdul believed the series to be different from other dance competition shows thanks to the wide range of ages it allowed for eligible contestants.
The show didn’t turn out to be Maddie’s big break, but that didn’t stop her from going on to succeed in the world of dance anyway.
