Maddie Ziegler as Christina

Ever since the age of 2, Maddie Ziegler knew that she had a passion for performing. Raised in Pittsburgh, PA, she and her younger sister were enrolled by their mother in the Abby Lee Dance Company. 

Little did they know that a few years later their dance studio would become world-famous and the trio would be starring in the award-winning Lifetime reality series Dance Moms

The show’s immense popularity led her to segue into becoming an internet sensation. Starring in five of singer-songwriter Sia’s music videos and the “Nostalgic For The Present” North American tour, Ms. Ziegler has had the honor of performing the artistic contemporary routines on Saturday Night Live, The 57th Annual Grammy Awards, The Ellen DeGeneres Show, The Voice, Dancing with the Stars, and Jimmy Kimmel Live

The dance prodigy quickly made a name for herself as an actress on hit television shows such as Pretty Little Liars, Austin & Ally and Nicky, Ricky, Dicky & Dawn. She lent her voice to TWC's animated feature Leap!, with Elle Fanning, and now makes her feature film debut on-screen in The Book of Henry

The youngest judge on FOX’s So You Think You Can Dance: The Next Generation, Ms. Ziegler has added fashion designer and author to her accomplishments. She unveiled her first clothing line, Maddie, for girls and juniors; and released her memoir The Maddie Diaries earlier this year. Beginning in the fall of 2017, Aladdin Books will publish her trilogy of YA novels about a young dancer. 

Recently she took home a People’s Choice Award and was named the Teen Choice Awards’ Choice Dancer.
