If you’re a fan of Dance Moms, you knowMaddie Ziegler for her killer technique and dominance of the pyramid. Now, eight years after the show’s 2011 premiere, the young performer is earning a living for herself and amassing an impressive net worth.
Most know Maddie as a member of the original Dance Moms cast, often receiving backlash for her close ties to Abby Lee Miller. Maddie was consistently given solos that she performed to perfection, often leading her to winning first place at competitions. But titles weren't the only thing Maddie got during her time on Dance Moms. Romper reported that Maddie made about $2,000 per episode, equating to about $400,000 for her six seasons overall.
But many people recognize Maddie for another reason: her performance in pop artist Sia’s music video for “Chandelier,” which has over 2 billion views on Youtube. Those who were unfamiliar with the dancer were blown away by the then 12-year-old’s performance in the video, and soon after she starred alongside Shia Labeouf in another Sia hit, “Elastic Heart,” which garnered over 1 billion views online. She has since starred in several other videos for Sia.
In addition to her collaborations with Sia, Maddie has other money-making opportunities. In addition to paid social media posts and TV guest appearances, the 16-year-old served as a judge on So You Think You can Dance: Next Generation, and made her feature film debut in 2017’s Book of Henry alongside Naomi Watts. She’s also penned three books — The Maddie Diaries, which was named a New York Times bestseller, The Audition, and The Callback, two books in a three-part fiction series. Finally, in 2016, Maddie released her own clothing line named after herself, which continues to sell on Amazon.
With all of these projects in place, it's no surprise the young woman has an impressive net worth. Celeb Net Worth estimates Maddie's net worth to be $5 million and growing. That's higher than Abby Lee Miller's net worth, but not quite as high as former co-star Jojo Siwa's net worth of $12 million.
If she keeps at her current pace, Maddie could be worth even more before she’s 20.
Watch the new season of Dance Moms airing on Lifetime on June 4 and catch up on all the old seasons on Hulu.
