Best Dance Moms Dancers

The Top Ten

1 Maddie Ziegler Maddie Ziegler

Maddie is the BEST dancer on Dance Moms. People always complain about how Maddie is the favorite and Maddie gets all the attention and the solos, well, she's the best dancer! Abby wants to win, and Maddie wins. Maddie has a great personality with how humble she is, and she has great facial expressions and great emotions, unlike the other girls. She also invests more time into dancing and her solos, and gets more lessons because dancing is her passion, and she wants to be the best she can be. Maddie has made the Dance Moms legacy, and no one can ever replace her.

Maddie is born to be a performer. There's always someone out there who has better techniques but it's hard to find a dancer who can tell a story. She's a sweet, humble and kind girl. She not a spoilt brat, the show edited it to make her seem like one to make controversies and views. She deserves everything. She has a God given talent. She is much more successful after leaving the show and aldc, she made the right decision to leave. I don't understand why the moms never give her any credit. She's very hardworking and has a great passion in dancing. She after all the time and effort she puts on dancing she totally deserves to be on top.

Maddie is awesome she's gorgeous and a excellent dancer. Maddie is also a very flexible person she should do gymnastics.

She is a great dancer and she’s cute

2 Chloe Lukasiak Chloe Lukasiak Chloe Elizabeth Lukasiak is an American dancer, television personality, actress and model. She is best known for being an original cast member of Lifetime's reality television series Dance Moms during Season 1 through Season 4.

I feel as if Chloe is just as good as Maddie, although even I can see that Maddie is a brilliant dancer, and I will never try to deny that even if I prefer Chloe. Abby favours Maddie, and due to that she gives her more time, more difficult choreography, and doesn't make her feel terrible about her dancing. Chloe's downfall is her choreography and her confidence. When Chloe is feeling confident, she is noticeably better. Overall, both Maddie and Chloe are amazing dancers, but I feel that Chloe is better.

A while ago I voted Maddie but I'm switching to Chloe. Chloe really does have the best technique, she has more technique than Maddie. The difference between Maddie and Chloe is that Maddie has a really high entertainment level while Chloe has a high technique level. Maddie can put on a show, and that's why she's considered the best. But Chloe has more technique and actually has a fairly serious ballet background and training.

For me chloe is the best dancer her technique is incredible and the only reason maddie is number one is because she gets better routines the other girls aren't given advanced dance routines but if they were they would be so much better than maddie I'm not a maddie hater I just think the girls aren't treated equally

Chloe is and outstanding dancer and is just as good as Maddie! She does need a bit more self confidence though... I feel like Abby brought Chloe down instead up up when it came to her self confidence.. Chloe is a gorgeous dancer and I don't know if she is done with dance but I hope not! PS I love her solo Silence and Dream on a star!

3 Kalani Hilliker Kalani Hilliker

Way better than everyone. She is the only dancer who ever won nationals and the dance awards. Kalani is the only person who would win at a real competition apart from Jojo, Asia and Sophia (not sure if she's on her) Her flexibility, control, feet and lines are amazing. And she conveys the best emotion. Dance isn't about faces, it's about movement and none else on dance moms can move like a dancer apart from Sophia

She desrves to be on the top, don't get me wrong I love all the girls and they are really talented. But Kalani honestly has everything, she can do any kind of style and win, looks great on the stage, she is beautiful, she has a real dancer body. I wish Abby put her against Maddie. I think it would show us more that Maddie is not the only perfect girl who has been on dance moms. I think every girl on dance moms is really special and talented. I hope they will stay in the dance industry cause they are amazing!

Super happy that maddie left the team. I feel Kalani is the best dancer on the team. Maddie was okay but was just given more opportunities and had expressions. Kalani has expressions and even more, Abby should give Kalani more opportunities!

Love this girl! Has confidence and people look up to her, she’s a role model! Personally, she is the most skilled, funny, beautiful girl on dance moms! Never change Kalani!

4 Kendall Vertes Kendall Vertes

Kendall is amazing some people just don't like her which is awful some people say mackenzie is the singer in the group but I think Kendall is the best singer and I love mackenzie as well but listening to the music videos Kendall is better

Kendall is a good dancer but not phenomenal you know. She doesn't have something special like Maddie or Brooke. She's just doing the choreographies fine, but nothing more.

Kendall is definitely the best to me she is the best singer and one of the best dancers especially in season 4 also people rank her low because of the bratty moments but they are not bratty at all to be honest I do those kinds of things all the time by the way Kendall is way better than nia ik I am taking long but I always see some emotion in her solos

Kendall is one of my favorites!

5 Mackenzie Ziegler Mackenzie Ziegler Mackenzie Ziegler is an American dancer, singer, actress and model. She is the younger sister of dancer and actress Maddie Ziegler and is best known for appearing for six years on Lifetime's reality dance show Dance Moms.

Mackenzie is a great singer and dancer. She really puts the feel into dancing. She still gets through even though everyone compares her to Maddie and tell her to be like Maddie. I think that she has a true potential and she is a different person to Maddie and is much better than her (although Maddie is amazing)

Mackenzie is a really talented little dancer she is always trying get better and she is so cause she is always compared to Maddie or Asia. I love Mackenzie so much.SHE IS NUMBER ONE.

Mackenzie is so cute and so talented and pretty I think she is way better then Asia

Mackenzie is the cutest dancer! she deserves all of the awards and abby needs to respect her. I love dance moms and I really don't have a favorite but mackenzie is definitely my first choice. she is 10000000000000000% better than asia!

6 Nia Frazier

Nia is edgy and cool. She tries all tasks assigned even if she doesn't get the best outcome, and she doesn't get mad or sad if she loses. But her flexibility is so good. She puts in her best effort and is one of the best dancers on the show. She is really one of the best, but she is compared to others that may be better then her. But I think she has kept pushing to be ahead and while the other girls are out doing things, she is in the dance room working on her feet and legs, SO she can go out and explore the world for herself like the others. But like Abby says: "There is always someone out there that is better" (may not be the actual words) She is going to have a bright and beautiful future. She will do all the things she wants to do, just in her own time. YOU GO GIRL!

Poor little NiNi never gets her chance to shine. Though what a talented dancer she is. She has a strong body for a young girl and she is spectacularly flexible. Watch her flexibility dances and they will blow your mind... She is more flexible than Maddie. What she lacks in technique she makes up for in her happy, cheerful spirit and charming personality. She is never sour or never a sore loser. She makes the best out of wherever she places and knows winning isn't everything. If only Abby gave Nia a chance she could be a superstar and dancing for celebrities just like Maddie. I love this girl so much and knows she will have a wonderful future

Nia is emotionally strong and only cried once on Dance Moms. She's not a diva or a brat like some other kids, and she really rocks at improv. She has an undeniable swagger and confidence.

She is always positive tries to find the good side unfortunately because of the negative energy around her she lost her confidence but she gets through it with a smile

7 Brooke Hyland

She's really flexible and has a great personality. - Ally-Dance17

Brook didn't want to be there. You could tell by the look on her face and her attitude that Kelly was forcing her to do it. Paige wanted to be there, had the beautiful face and bright eyes. Paige was the eye candy she was there because she had the best body and was willing to show skin to get ratings. - boce

Brooke is the best dancer, that's why she was always in the front row. Her back flexibility is insane! Kelly even said the originally Brooke was Abby's favourite, she even admitted that Brooke has a god given ability! She really does, and Brooke always places in the top 5 consistently! She has so much talent I'm sad too see her give it up. I don't understand when people compare he really to Mackenzie or Kalani. Mackenzie is really more of an tumbler and Kalani has great leg flexibility, but overall Brooke is better at acro she can perform with her back as well as legs! She's so underrated.

Well that is your opinion but I think that she is a 10/10

Brooke is an amazing acrobatic - Cheer4ever

8 JoJo Siwa JoJo Siwa

I HATE this annoying little girl. She is a brat and she can't sing and her rap is horrible. My ears bleed at her songs and I get so angry even when I just look at her. She's spoiled and has fake bleached Barbie hair and her bows are hideous, yet she has so many fans! This kid is a joke and I have good reasons to hate her. I hate her fans too

I think Nickelodeon might do something similar to what Disney did to Miley Cyrus & Jake Paul. - Kid_ethinederland

Jojo Siwa is the best girl on Dance Moms. She puts so much work into her dances. She is so pretty and flexible. She is loud and proud. Jojo is confident in her dances. She has so much spirit. Even though Abby Lee might thing that Jojo is loud, I think Jojo is perfect just the way she is. She is also the prettiest girl in the whole entire Abby Lee Dance Company.

I hate jojo siwa she's annoying and she always screams. She's weird in a bad way. She's babyish. Mackenzie is way better than you jojo. I hate you jojo. She is spoiled and bratty but always seams to get her own way. Her songs suck I hate jojo siwa, she is a demon!

EWW. NO. JoJo is rude to the other dancers, and she is a bad sport when she wins or loses. Honestly, she also is just average for the Dance Moms dancers. She isn’t Maddie or Chloe or Kalani. She’s a dancer, sure, and she’s good- how else would she be on dance moms? But she isn’t nice or kind to anyone else, she’s full of herself, she talks back to people, and her overall personality is terrible. She’s an OK dancer but not as good as Chloe or Maddie or Mackenzie or Kalani.

9 Paige Hyland

Paige is not the most technical dancer, but she is the most physically attractive. I think she was on the show for her looks, eye candy. She showed more skin than any of the dancers on the show. When young she could have walked the runway (in bikini) as a young teen model. She had the face, and body lines for it. Paige and Chloe were tall, thin, nice body and willing to show a lot of skin. Not shy. - boce

How is Paige like Vivi Anne, she's an amazing dancer who just isn't given enough opportunities, Vivi Anne is much worse than her

Paige is a great dancer with an awesome personality. Even though she is not favored by Abby she's still MY favorite.

Paige should be last

10 Brynn Rumfallo Brynn Rumfallo

Brynn was a great dancer when she joined the show. She was trained at another school. She is cute, slender and has done more modeling than all the other girls. She tries to act so modest but for enough money she would show almost all her bare body and call it art - boce

Brynn is better then the other people who are 19 and under get your facts right

Brynn is sooo underrated, I mean she was known way before the show and was even on America's got talent for a while, she deserves to be up there with Kenzie and Maddie. Most of the dancers on the team were made famous by Abby, Brynn was well known way before the show. Like another person said she already had trained at another school and was great. The only thing is that because of Abby she lost most of her passion for dance and now does mainly cheer.

I vote for Brynn because of her awesome personality she is so cute and cool.

The Contenders

11 Sophia Lucia Sophia Lucia

Sophia Lucia is cute, talented, and a superstar. She is better than Maddie because she is younger, better and ALWAYS has a great attitude even if she doesn't win. She doesn't throw a fit like Maddie does. Sophia, you should be #1 or # 2 on this list.

I think Sophia has the best technique here. But I'm not so sure if she should be counted as a "dance moms dancer" because she was on the show for so short

Sophia was born a prodigy, a star. Maddie wasn't, but Maddie is extremely dedicated, and so is Sophia, and they both are super hardworking dancers

She was definitely the best

13 Elliana Walmsley Elliana Walmsley

She is sassy not the best - aminaali123

Elliana is a spectacular dancer but she can do a bit better in her dances. I think her mom is kind-of strict but... but she will always be better than me.

Elliana is adorable and awesome! shes so talented and pretty.

People say Lilly is so much better than Ellie, but now that I think about it, Ellie has moved on to some incredible things! Like how she was a DWTS JR pro! On the show you could see how much she improved and how happy she was! Comment what Lilly has done please! (Ps I know this isn't YouTube) PSS( NO HATE TO LILLY) I❤️LILLY!

15 Nicaya Wiley

I LOVE Nicaya but it's just her mom that lets her down

16 Asia Monet Ray

Asia is one of the best performers I have ever seen! She is so sassy and full of energy on stage! My favourite solo by her is The Robot, I never get tired of watching that dance!

What on earth!? Asia is at 16th and Vivi Anne is at 13th, what on earth is going on here.

Asia is a great dancer and she really should be on Dance Moms since Mackenzie left

She really is kind of bratty Kenzie is so much better - aminaali123

17 Nia Sioux Nia Sioux

I can't believe she didn't get higher on the list. She I'd one of the main dancers and she works really hard and she has some ADDITUDE

18 Paige

19 Maesi Caes

She’s so original and just so down to earth! She’s such a great little HIP HOPPER and she’s pretty too

20 Abby Lee Miller Abby Lee Miller Abigale “Abby” Lee Miller is an American dance coach, and the director and owner of Reign Dance Productions.

More like the worst, she is in prison and is such a brat and a whiner. Act like an adult captain bossy.

Um.. she's not a dancer. Anyway she is way too mean to those kids

Top 1

21 Areana Lopez
22 Ava Cota

Ava's mum was just way too pushy but Ava was a good dancer. She's beaten Maddie before and I don't think people like her because of how tall she is but I think it makes her solos look better.

She is super tall and an amazing dancer.

23 Alexus Oladi
24 Jordyn Jones

Was jordyn on dance moms? If I remember it correctly, jordyn competed on abby's ultimate dance competition but she wasn't on dance moms

I love her music

Yeah, Jordyn wasn't on Dance Moms only AUDC

I love her a lot though she's an amazing dancer

25 Peyton Kaye

She is very much like mackenzie never good enough but to me she is a champ

26 Sofie Dossi
27 Anna McNulty
28 Jalen Testerman

Jalen is horrible like vivi Anne

29 Vivi-Anne Stein

My favorite quote that vivi made is "I cut my finger on my mom's ring. I hope I can still dance" vivi was extremely good at a finger dance!

I don't like Vivi much, she isn't that great of a dancer

She can't dance! - Sandez

Vivi Anne is ok
