With its seventh and final season currently airing on Lifetime, Dance Moms is nearly over. But the legacy of the reality show will live on through the beloved cast — many of whom have gone on to score big projects of their own.
Chloe Lukasiak — $6 million
There’s a reason why Chloe knocked fellow fan fave Maddie out of the top spot — she’s got a lot going on. From her acting career in projects like Lifetime’s Center Stage: Dance Camp to a spokeswoman gig for dancewear company Just For Kix, the 16-year-old has a diverse resume. Plus, she has a fashion line in the works!
Maddie Ziegler — $5 million
Not far behind Chloe is 15-year-old Maddie, whose name is probably the widest known post-show thanks to her work in multiple Sia music videos, including the VMA-winning “Chandelier.” She’s also dabbled in modeling for Glitzy Girl and Purple Pixies, released a fashion line with sister Mackenzie, and made her acting debut in the major motion picture, The Book of Henry. Plus, never underestimate the power of having over 10 million Instagram followers — so many opportunities for sponsored content!
Mackenzie Ziegler — $2 million
Just like her big sister, Mackenzie cashes in on her millions of followers with plenty of #ad posts. Plus, since her 2014 debut album, the 13-year-old has made bank through music sales, dance performances, and more. And she too benefits from the aforementioned Maddie & Mackenzie Collection.
Abby Lee Miller — $2 million
Thanks to her recent legal issues, for which she's currently serving one year in prison, Abby’s salary has unsurprisingly dwindled. Prior to all of that, she’d amassed an impressive fortune through her successful dance studio and six-year contract with Lifetime.
Kendall Vertes — $1.5 million
Outside of the show, the 14-year-old has dabbled in the music industry as a member of singing group The Glitter Girls, and as a solo artist with the single “Out Loud.” Like her cast members, she's also a fan of social media sponsored posts.
Kalani Hilliker — $1 million
On top of the usual social media and reality TV earnings, the 17-year-old has made money as an actress with a small role in ABC’s Bunheads and the upcoming projects Breaking Brooklyn and Swiped.
JoJo Siwa — $500K
JoJo’s 2016 debut single, “Boomerang,” was a bonafide hit, earning the 14-year-old a gold accreditation. Additionally, she signed a deal with Claire’s to sell a line of hair accessories inspired by her signature bows, and launched a line of dancewear called The JoJo Collection. Factor in revenue from her YouTube account — which has over 4.5 million subscribers — and bestselling memoir JoJo’s Guide to the Sweet Life, and the girl is rolling in it!
Nia Sioux — $300K
Since leaving the show, the 16-year-old has filmed the upcoming movie, Summer Dance, and released a hit single “Dance (Just Rock).” She has also performed in a number of off-Broadway shows.
