Top Ten Best Kid Dancers and Gymnasts

The Top Ten

1 Maddie Ziegler Maddie Ziegler

Why is everybody saying that I think this person is better than Maddie or this person is? Maddie is a truly amazing dancer. Yes there are other dancers that maybe better than Maddie in certain things however Maddie is a beautiful girl and dancer. Why else would Sia have asked her to dance in music videos..? Overall I think that Maddie is an amazing dancer and there might be other kids that can do certain things Maddie can't but she is truly remarkable. She's only 13/14, she probably never thought that she would become famous and become one of the best dancers. So just relax guys.

I'm not saying this because I watch dance moms, but when I watch Maddie dance it sends chills down my spine, I watch a lot of dance and no one has ever made me feel what I feel when Maddie dances, she's remarkable. When people say she's a brat or her fame is getting to her head, they need to understand Maddie never intended on becoming famous, she's handling it like every other 13 year old would. Relax she's not an adult yet. I feel Maddie is something special, when she wins its nothing but her humble self accepting that award.

I'm giving my opinion, when I watch dance moms you can get maddie any kind of dance and she can master it. She's a wonderful dancer and she's my favorite but I think all of the girls are great. They are all compassionate dancers and I don't want to compare so this could be a great spot for maddie to be number one. I just think because of her talented dancing into starring with sia and acting she stands out a lot to many people who watches dance moms.

you betcha

2 Sophia Lucia

I have absolutely NO IDEA how Maddie is above Sophia. Just because Maddie is the star of dance moms does not mean that she is better than Sophia. For those people who voted for Maddie, please please please watch Sophia's dances. She is truly an amazing dancer with baby flexibility and unbelievable technique. "Best dancers" is about ability and talent, not about facial expressions. Sophia's abilities far outreach those of Maddie's. Sophia is a dancer and Maddie is a performer- that is it. I am not hating on Maddie, do NOT get me wrong, because I do feel that Maddie is a great dancer. But Sophia really truly is one of a kind and she is the most talented dancer I have ever seen. Her posture is also AMAZING


Maddie is the best dancer in the world, and even though she is beyond wonderful at her emotion and her performance, she easily has the best technique between Sophia and Maddie. Plus back to the emotion, Maddie has something Sophia does not in the emotion area.

Ok we all have our own opinions someone may think maddie is better then Sophia or Sophia is better than maddie. We don't have to get defensive. We just have to know is that these two are both great dancers and that's all that matters. Now I have a favorite and I like maddie not because she's on dance moms its because she lights up the room when she dances to me and I'm going to let everyone have their own opinion.

Sophia is talented and has broke the world record for the most spins with a total of 56.

3 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.

Chloe kept dancing her heart out regardless of what others said to her or about her. she cried real tears and went through real pain. Chloe should be #1 because Maddie never has to go through anything. The tears she sheds are fake and she has no emotion. Maddie claims that she is Chloe's friend but real friends stand up for each other. Although Maddie appears to be all that and so beautiful, Chloe is beautiful inside and out. Chloe this message is for you. Don't let other people tell you who to be. Only be the one and only you cause if you are trying to be like Maddie then there will be two of her and none of you. Be original. Keep trying your hardest and keep being the one and only, super-talented, amazing dancer, Chloe Lukasiak. Love, Anonymous!

Chloe is truly amazing. She has more emotion and passion in her dancing than anyone else I have seen. Especially Maddie. She can really tell the story with not only her movement but her emotion. She really knows how to embody a character and portray it beautifully. I can't say the same as Maddie. Maddie is a performer with the same facial expression that she has had since forever. On stage, you can see Chloe's face change as she goes from one emotion to the other. I hope that passion that she has never dies, because losing her would be a tragic death to the dance world.

Chloe, you are a wonderful dancer and it shows. You have great technique and flexibility. I think that you should be number one on this list because you are my favorite girl on dance moms and I am so sad that you left. Don't let what other people say bring you down. Their just jealous and want what you have. You are amazing and you got into the Joffery Ballet and have been in movies and music videos. Unlike Maddie, you don't brag when you get something great, you care about people and their feelings. You are kind, pretty, and a AMAZING dancer. Please come back to Dance Moms, Chloe.

So fluent in her dancing, precise on what she needs to achieve and praised by her fans. She also has an outstanding personally to keep going when everything seems against herself

4 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 very young dancer. At that age I find she has Mackenzie is her own little self with her own little talents. In my opinion she is a better actress and singer than Maddie and she has the potential to be a better dancer than Maddie. If she stops giving in to pressure and just decides to be free on the stage she will make it. I think Melissa keeps throwing Mackenzie under the bus to better Maddie that's why Mackenzie will never improve but Mackenzie has a natural talent that needs to be stepped up. Keep doing what yot of talent. Many people including her mother always tell her to be like Maddie but she is not Maddie. Keep doing Mackenzie, you're a sassy and beautiful little girl. You need to get the credit you deserve. XOXO

You are wonderful and so incredible just the way you are and people tried to compare you to maddie but your not and never will be your Mackenzie and you are amazing the way you are and I hope you know that I think that you are the best dancer ever on dance moms you are great and people recognize you for all your hard work so don't try to be your sister or any one else be Mackenzie that's all that really matters and if dancing is not your thing then sing I've heard you sing and your amazing love you and follow your heart and dreams love your biggest biggest fan ever

Mackenzie is such a strong dancer and person people always tell her to be like maddie but she isn't maddie she is Mackenzie and I wish everyone knew that but she is very sassy and beautiful

Why is she 4th she is the best put her 1st

6 Jojo Siwa Jojo Siwa

I hate her and I hate the fact that all of you like her. Have you seen her on dance moms? That kid is the rudest brat and Abby has every right to hate her. She took over nickelodeon and Toyota, her bows are ugly and her songs are auto tuned crap. She's a bleached Barbie and she receives to much praise. Go to school Jojo and get a life, weirdo

Jojo has the best attitude about everything. She has a mouth and isn't afraid to speak up.

Jojo you are so pretty, talented and amazing. I have always admired you. Keep being the wonderful girl you are!

I love JoJo... Her dance is awesome...

7 Kalani Hilliker

Kalani is an amazing dancer. She's well rounded and seems to be able to handle anything. She's flexible, her emotion is good, and her technique is great. I hope she keeps dancing.

Confused that Kalani isn't on top. Maddie gets the fame but she doesn't deserve it. Kalani on the other hand is the best dancer that has ever been on the team. Kalani Hillier is so amazing. She has the emotion and the technique. She also has flexibility. She also is funny and not bratty and annoying like Maddie.

I think Kalani deserves it more because from a young age she had to work for it. She and Kira would have to clean out the studio every night because the dancing tuition cost a lot, and once you work for something you will realize the value of it and Kalani has learnt the value of both MONEY and DANCE

She is extremely flexible and she can handle anything! She has a cute, kind, and goofy personality! She shows emotions in her dances. Her technique is excellent and she has incredible balance!

8 Annie Bratayley

I love her, but her gymnastics tricks are not good. Everyone says they love her because they love the family. And I do love the family too. But that doesn't mean that Annie is an amazing gymnast. There are many better kids out there.

She is an amazing gymnast and very inspiring to young people and older if you want she always tries to find good in things and tries her hardest with gymnastics and also finds a way to tackle school I know she may not be the best but she has a very special gift

She can do amazing tricks. She shows great emotions and is what people look up to in the fame world. She also can survive anything with a smile on her face because she's naturally cheerful! LET'S GO ANNIE!

I think Annie’s trucks are good

9 Brynn Rumfallo

Brynn is amazing and one of my fave dancers she has great technique and she does have facials! I don't care how many of you tell me she doesn't but she does if you go to her dances BEFORE dance moms it's a shame that she is on the aldc and not at her old studio because I'm afraid she is going to regress in dancing and won't get good enough training then she did at club dance which was and still is an amazing studio honestly she should at least be in the top 5 because brynn is an amazing dancer!

I'm just going to say it. I think Brynn should be above Chloe, Maddie, Jojo, and Mackenzie on this. I love all of them from dance moms, but honestly, Brynn is just simply beautiful when she dances. I honestly think this list is a bit inaccurate. Brynn shows a lot of emotion through her body, but also has exquisite facial expressions. Her technique is also absolutely amazing. I absolutely love Maddie as the person, but Brynn is just a better dancer. The other 3 girls are also amazing, but just not really up to Brynn or Kalani's level.

So is a really good dancer she is one of the girls on the show Dance moms and she dances like Maddie when she can't hear the song she keeps on dancing like a professional and what she is trained to do

Brynn is so beautiful, much more then the other dance moms girls. She is such a sweet and adorable girl as well as an awesome dancer!

10 Nia Fraizer

She's not only a good dancer, but she has a positive attitude. I didn't see that girl cry once on dance moms until her grandfather was like dying... Every single other child on that show has thrown a tantrum of some sorts..

Nia is underrated. She is a beautiful girl: a great singer, actor, and dancer. I think she deserves more respect.

Nia Frazier is the best dancer and should be number 1 because she forgot her routine and made it her own right there on stage and is WAY better than maddie whatever

She doesn't have the greatest technique or flexibility but she's determined and has heart of a angle.

She has improved the most in the young dance world and focuses on her personal best.

The Contenders

11 Autumn Miller

Autumn has the passion and the dedication of a great dancer. She truly does eat sleep and breathe dance

Autumn is a passionate dancer and stuff but I think she's a bit spoilt

Seriously? Like come on! Autumn should be in the top 5, higher than Maddie to be honest.

She's an awesome dancer but most of all she has a beautiful soul she donates her time to other good causes, she's an amazing human being thanks to her parents too,👍

12 Kendal Vertes

I think that Kendall is he most beautiful dancer she moves fluently and can do every style of dance just as Maddie can. I also think that Kendall doesn't get the attention that she deserves she has her first song out and works her hardest in rehearsal. When I look on the internet I always see people say on the internet that people say that she always cry's and that she's a cry baby but she's really not because Abby is mean to the girls and does make them cry.

Kendal... Where do I start? She is extremely pretty and kind and she stands up for herself when Jill and Abby fight she tells them to stop and she is very entertaining I love watching her dance I love it when she gets solo and she is very good at singing and acting also she is super sweet and funny

Honestly Kendall just...looks sloppy now like she lost her passion for dance. She doesn't even look like she's even trying. Don't get me wrong she's a great dancer but I don't think she deserves to be in the top 10.

Love Kendall she is my bff and if you were not wondering I am maddie ziegler

14 Jade Chynoweth

Jade is my favorite dancer. It's incredible how she manipulate and move her body, I love her passion and her Energy, really worth to see her... you will not regret it, she's AMAZING without exaggerating...and her body these abs is fire

Jade is unreal guys the most talented and beautiful person I have ever seeing in my whole life its worth to see her

She's so underrated people need to watch her videos because she's so good at dancing and she's so energetic and can do a lot of dance styles.

Jade needs to be number one because she has so much power, energy, and technique. She mostly dances hip hop, but it a well rounded dancer!

15 Brooke Hyland

I so wish her and her sister were still on dance moms I love her so much and she is flexible and beautiful

Brooke's great, but she needs to work on her technique and emotion. Her flexibility and tumbling, however are perfect.

I love Brooke. I always try to do her moves, but I can't bend like her. Too bad she left Dance moms a few years ago

She sucks

16 Tate Mcrae

I love her! Whenever she dances, no matter what style it is, she brings something to the dance floor. She has flexibility, technique, strength, everything that a dancer is required. She is way beyond her years. And believe it or not, she started dancing at the age of 6. Many kid dancers start dancing at a age younger like 3 or 4, but Tate had a late start. But she is head and shoulders above the other kid dancers now, so I think that proves how much talent Tate has and how hardworking she is.

Tate McRae is so amazing. I don't understand how she is 23 and not #1. Maddie doesn't deserve the top. Also, on So You Think You Can Dance HOW DID SHE GET 3RD? Tate has the emotion, the technique and the experience to be a professional. Found it interesting that Maddie was a guest judge and critiqued her when Tate beat Maddie many times in competitions. Tate is better than everyone on this list.

When Tate dances, she is so beautiful that I can't take my eyes off of her. Her moves are elegant, and her technique is flawless.

She has a lot of emotion and is younger than the rest Maddie. She has perfect technique and is trained professionally. In my opinion I believe Tate deserves 1st place

She is 11 now but she just won 3 gold medals at the British Trampoline Comp - ALL OF ENGLAND!

She is an amazing 9 year old gymnast

18 Paige Hyland

If Paige was given lyrical or contemporary solos I think she would have done better on dance moms. Her emotion is better than Chloe's and she knows how to entertain. Her feet were a bit sloppy and she wasn't very confident, but other than that she's AMAZING!

Paige is my favorite next to maddie and I did not vote for maddie cause she already on top so I voted for our on and only awesome girl Paige

She was put through hell with Abby yet she continued to dance as she loves to

Paige was the best I wish she stayed on the show longer

19 Sean Lew

Why doesn't he have any comments? He is truly talented, making every dance move to his own and is super captivating. trust me, watch some videos of him and you will be obsessed!

20 Jordyn Jones

Jordyn isn't the strongest dancer, the Choreography she's given is pretty bad.

Jordyn is a great dancer and is great at attacking her moves hard, she sometimes gives her moves her own unique flair!

Amazing! She's a triple treat

I LOVE her hip hop dances on AUDC, but she can do every style not just hip hop!

21 Paulina Macias

Paulina Macias is a Canadian dancer in Vaughan Maple Ontario Canada she has one many awards her dance studio is Dance Zone

22 Kida Burns

Kida deserves every good thing that come his way. He's very talented and such a nice and humble kid. Nowadays, talented hip-hop kid dancers tend to get looked over because of popular dance shows like dance moms that attract many young viewers and are mainly just contemporary, but Kida puts in just as much work and has proved himself to be an amazing and very versatile dancer. Love this kid!

His movements are unbelievable. He is amazing! And he can do other styles. Very rare for a hip hop dancer. A true talent. (Commenting from Japan)

I like the way he dances

Kida's coordination is just amazing.He's style is perfect.he clearly deserves to be the best

24 Gabe de Guzman

Best teen dancer in the world, no doubt about it.


25 Sage

Awesome gymnast she is amazing

26 Briar Nolet

She is phenomenal and is probably one of the more stronger dancers compared to others on this list. Her technique if on pointe, o=her flexibility is unreal and when she dances its entertaining and graceful. If you don't believe me watch her "Dangerous" solo. - melanieking__

27 Maile O'Keefe
28 Chloe East

Not only is she a beautiful dancer but her self choreographed piece Vol de Lam is one of my all time favorite routines!

She is amazing!

I had no idea she was a famous YouTuber!..or that she was on Liv and Maddie. What can't she do?

29 Ava Cota

Ava is an amazing dancer she wants people to stop making fun of her height and weight by proving that just because you're different you can still do anything.

Sorry, but she needs to gain some weight.

30 Kyndall Harris

She's so good at dancing!

A very good dancer

I love them with all my heart. I will never stop loving and supporting them until I die. please vote them one of the top 10 best kid dancers because their awesome.

33 Bailey Sok

She is more best in hip hop dance, when the choreography and music is sexy, her facial expression and how she dance is so sassy, and when the choreo and the music is more of a boyish one, she dances up like a gangster and it totally looks wonderful on her. If ever Bailey reads this, please tie up your hair.

She is so powerful when dance.I think she is the best kid hip hop dance.She is so INCREDIBLE! Anytime I always saw her dancing.From the first time I saw her,I start to like her and her powerful dance.

34 Kenneth San Jose

Kenneth is an amazing dancer and singer and actor. You may not like his singing but I do. It's not nice to give out negative comments on such a hard working kid. He's only 14 and his voice will sound more better. But I love his singing. And he's perfect just the way he is.

He look so incredible when dancing because of his facial expression when dancing, and also when he add up his boyish techniques when he dance

He is the mostly dancer that I like.I don't like he is singing because I think dance is better than singing yup Ken's perfect dance with Bailey and Sean on Matt Stefanina's YouTube video.

Kenneth is my cousin and he's an amazing singer! Thank u so much whoever thinks so
