Famous dancer and YouTube star JoJo Siwa made her first appearance on Dance Moms during its fourth season. Though she quickly became a fan favorite, it was at the end of Season 6 that the now 14-year-old parted ways with the reality show.

Why did JoJo Siwa quit Dance Moms?

After appearing on the show, JoJo's fame quickly began to grow. And it was her budding career that led to her decision of parting ways with them. Not only did she get signed to Nickelodeon, she's also released a music video, gotten her own special, and starred in a feature-length film! Though a lot has changed since her Dance Moms days, it's clear she hasn't forgotten her roots.

In an interview with J-14, she opened up about her latest ventures and how much Dance Moms has impacted her. "Dance Moms was one of the best experiences I’ve ever had in my life!" she told the mag. "Literally, Dance Moms was so amazing and I have the world to thank for that. They were so awesome — the set, the cast, the crew — it was amazing. It’s my platform, it’s how I’m here now. And so for me, moving on from that was really, really hard. But now it’s so cool! I signed with Nickelodeon, like that’s unbelievable!"
