Top 10 Best Dance Moms Dancers

The Top Ten
1 Maddie Ziegler Madison Nicole Ziegler is an American dancer, actress, author and model. She was initially known for appearing in Lifetime's reality show Dance Moms from 2011 until 2016.

Maddie is a really really good dancer and she's sweet and nice there isn't much more to say about Maddie except for the fact that she was conditioned to be the best dancer by Abby. Any of the girls on this list could be Maddie if only they got the same attention, choreography, opportunities and learning time as her. Nevertheless, she is an amazing and fantastical dancer. And she had many careers when she was younger from being in sia's music video to acting I was really hard on her

There isn't much more to say about Maddie except for the fact that she was conditioned to be the best by Abby. Any of the girls on this list could be Maddie if only they got the same opportunities and learning time as her. Nevertheless, she is an amazing and fantastical dancer who conveys the story through her emotions and beautiful technique.

I think that out of everyone that has ever stepped foot in the ALDC studio has never been better than Maddie. Maddie is just truly great!

She is just my favorite but after she was told she is ABBY favorite she stoped trying so hard and got worse! She should have kept going up.

2 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. She then came back to Dance Moms in Season 7.

Chloe is such a delight and was a great dancer on the show. I would've loved to see her on the show for all 7 seasons, but her coming back S7 was really such a pleasure. Now, let's be real. She could've been better than Maddie if she hadn't gotten worse choreography than her. For example, Chloe's "What Goes Around" solo was extremely mediocre to Maddie's "Looking for a Place Called Home" solo, it can be clearly seen. Amazing girl, but should've gotten a better chance.

Chloe's emotional execution and technique were fabulous. If all opportunities were equal our girl would've won it all. Look at all she could do-- with neglect!

Chloe has always been an outstanding dancer. Imagine how good she would be if Abby was actually nice and paid attention to her! It's amazing how Chloe danced so well even through all the pressure she had. One of the best ALDC dancers ever!

Because I think Chloe was better than Maddie but she didn't get the attention that she should have had Abby was just playing favoritisms.

3 Kalani Hilliker

Kalani is a very underrated! I feel like at the beginning abby wanted her on the team so bad that she sacrificed two students of her own to get her on the team but as the time went on she began to be underestimated by Abby in a way that she was almost threatened by her so much to never properly put her up against Maddie. I agree that she received some favoritism, but never as much as Maddie, and technically, it is showcased many times she is a better dancer.

Kalani is so underrated! I feel like she was really underestimated by Abby in a way that she was almost threatened by her so much to never properly put her up against Maddie. I agree that she received some favoritism, but never as much as Maddie, and technically, it is showcased many times she is a better dancer.

Kalani is easily the best dance moms dancer ever! She has 2 perfect scores, won nationals, has wonderful flexibility, control and feet! Kalani has wonderful movement and is overall fantastic.

Kalani I think she deserves more than Abby gave her yes Abby likes her but she will not let her win against Maddie I just think she deserves more.

4 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 was such an adorable presence on the show! I loved her and her cute performances. She may have been younger, but really didn't let that control her or bring her down, and ended up beating Maddie!

Mackenzie is the best dancer no matter what she's the sweetest person ever. she is very good with kids/minis. She deserves number #1. She has beautiful arms and legs and vey very talented. She is the youngest yet she gives outstanding performances. She always pushes things to the next level.

I love Mackenzie's dances, she's so good at dancing! I also applaud her, because Abby was always so hard on her. She was the youngest of all the dancers, but was so strong even with all of the mean comments from're the best Mackenzie, so never give up! We'll all be here for you through thick and thin!

Mackenzie is such a good dancer. She was the youngest yet still gave amazing Performances. She pushed herself at a very young age and she was so adorable!

5 Kendall Vertes

Kendall was a very very amazing and talented girl and she was very respectful but sometimes Abby would try to get on her nerves and tell her that she's lazy which I totally disagree with. She is not lazy. She is one of the most sweetest and kindest people in the world she has amazing talent and amazing energy And if Abby wants to compare her to Maddie, she can compare her to Maddie all she wants but she can't compare her to Maddie. She is a really great dancer and I don't think she should compare them because it's really bad to compare children. But overall I'll love Kendall and she is a really good inspiration for me when I grow older and older.

I feel that Kendall was a little overrated, but really talented! Respectfully, she was lazy to me onstage and not really entertaining. As for technique, she passed my checks, but emotions and energy? Really needed to be worked on.

Kendall like the rest of the girls was sweet, sensitive, and a super-talented dancer. Plus she was an extremely beautiful and funny girl.

Kendall is totally the best dancer on Dance Moms! Maddie was only good because Abby was biased and she only paid attention to Maddie! Kendall is so good and she could totally have beaten Maddie if she got the same attention. She should be second, if not first! She is so much better than Chloe and Kalani and HELLO? Mackenzie's dances were immature and totally EASY compared to Kendalls! Kendalls A La Secondes were so GOOD! She could do a lot more turns than Maddie, Chloe, and all the girls! Kalani could barely DO A La Secondes! Mackenzie's were weak, and the technique was bad. Also, Kendall is so much prettier than all the other girls. Maddie was pretty, but not now. Kendall is totally the #1 dancer EVER. You GO, Kendall!

6 Brooke Hyland

Brooke was always a great dancer and used to be Abby's favorite, but after that awkward teenage phase, she sort of faded out and Abby could've cared less. I feel like she lost the passion of dancing throughout the show and wanted to try other things. I am happy she followed what she wanted to do in the end and really enjoyed her acro solos!

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.

Brooke is a great dancer it I don't think she puts a lot if work or effort into her dances because she doesn't like to dance, she likes to cheer. And Brooke doesn't really care about anything. And Brooke is a beautiful girl with talent and skills but I don't think that Brooke would be MUCH better cheering or doing gymnastics. Just saying!

I think that Brooke was the sixth best dancer on dance moms. Maddie being first, Kalani being second, Brynn being third, Chloe being fourth, and Kenzie being fifth. Brooke looked really pretty when dancing, well I mean her smile was kind of cheesy but other than that, she looked good dancing on stage. She was also very flexible.

7 Nia Frazier

Nia was always the underdog in Abby's eyes but she never took it out on her friends if anything it made her want to be around them one thousand percent more.

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 super underrated! She may not be the BEST dancer on Dance moms but she certainly is amazing! She never got her chance to shine which I always wished would happen. Shes a strong dancer and has amazing flexibility! Stay strong!

8 Brynn Rumfallo

Brynn is too underrated. I mean, she was by far the best one there. Her flexibility, control, and technique was outrageous! More flexible than most of the girls on there, better technique than most of the girls, and Brynn CAN act. I've seen her do multiple solos before she was on Dance Moms, and her expressions are amazing! So for everyone saying she can't act, go watch her solos "Violet" or "Crazy Little Thing Called Love". Her facial expressions were just a little more calm on Dance Moms, probably because she might've been shy on the camera. But no one can tell me she's bad at acting, because she isn't. Not to mention, she regressed a little on Dance Moms because she would get bullied and demolished by GROWN ADULT women every single day. Just like what happened to Chloe. However, even though she regressed a little, she was definitely still the best and regressed the least out of the girls! And if she can't act, then why is she getting all these acting jobs? I mean, her dancing is so ...more

She deserves to be number one by far. I mean, look at how jealous the moms were. Her technique and flexibility was outrageous and it's just so satisfying to watch her because she is literally flawless. Her acting isn't even bad, I think she just got stressed out by the mom's bullying her constantly, because I watched her solos before Dance Moms and her acting is fine!

My thoughts are really quite mixed when it comes to Brynn. She is a great technical dancer, but I am unsure about the emotion and delivery of the dances she does. However, I am confident enough in her work to say she is at least on the top 5 list of dancers throughout ALDC history. I wish she would've been introduced to the show earlier so I could get a better analysis of her though.

She is just so obviously the best. She was amazing at acting and Hip-Hop, so if you're saying she isn't, you need to go watch her dances off the show. She's amazing. She's also by far the prettiest on the show as well.

9 Paige Hyland

Paige was not on the team as long as everyone would hope but while she was there she was one of the funniest girls there, especially when she hurt her leg and was bouncing around practicing a hip-hop dance with her boot.

Page also isn't one of my favorites. In fact, the rest of these aren't my favorites, but Paige is different. I really like her technique and everything. She's beautiful and talented, which I love about her and I want her to keep going no matter what.

She doesn't dance at studio 19. Chloe does. Paige have up dancing for good to become a child actress. And all Paige ever wanted to do was make Abby proud. Paige is really pretty and a great dancer and she put a lot of effort and hard work into all of her dances. I miss Paige and Brooke and the show is just plain BORING without you!

Page is a great dancer the only reason she was considered one of the weakest is because Abby was not the right teacher for her with the right teacher I think she could have even beat Kendall.

10 Sophia Lucia

Sophia's time was so cut short on Abby's show, but she came first both times she had earned solos. I really waited for her to be put against Maddie, but she was only on the show for two episodes. She also holds a world record for most continuous pirouettes, making her a little TOO GOOD for competitive dance. I really loved her!

Sophia has talent. Shes really flexible and has a great technique. Shes always gives her all in performances and is always so humble about her talent. Stay strong Sophia!

Sophia won,National Junior Female Best Dancer 2014,Regional JUMP Teen Female VIP 2016,Regional Junior Miss Starpower 2014,Regional NYCDA Junior Female Outstanding Dancer 2014, Regional JUMP Junior Female VIP 2014, Regional Junior Miss Starpower 2013 any many more dance titles! She also holds a World Record for the most Pirouettes, Sophia has an outstanding technique and flexibility. She also can Show emotion through her body which is rare to find!

I love Sophia. She's is so talented and so pretty. Nowadays, Maddie is a total brat, according to Insider, and tries to be the boss of literally everything. Sophia is so humble with her fans, and even told everyone to have a Happy Earth Day! I mean, that is totally unherard of... Sophia is so kind and humble.

The Contenders
11 Lilliana Ketchman

Lily is probably The youngest person on this list. Other than McKenzie McKenzie is now 18 but Lily is now 15 which is scary to me to think that she has grown that much which only compare me to Lily only three years apart, which is something good to have someone that is only a bit of Aamir is younger than you know 17 years younger than you and I really really like Lily. She's an independent little girl, and she thinks of others and also herself, and she likes to look up to future people and Lily is really really amazing and she always wins just like Maddie, my little Maddie.

Lilliana was such a cutie! I don't know why she isn't higher up on this list as she was one of the few dancers to get a perfect score on her solos. She showed commitment to the team and really shone through in every performance she did. She may have been younger, but that only made her stronger!

Lilliana was and is an AMAZING dancer. She was only 7 when she joined dance moms but still pulled off outstanding performances like Straight jacket which is easily one of the best dances ever performed on Dance moms. Keep up the great work!

Liliana is just... AMAZING! She is so flexible, incredible in every dance there is, and her straight jacket dance was definitely one of the best dances Dance Moms has ever performed. Although she is still young, she has accomplished so much, and there is still so much more for her to do. Not only is she a simply awesome dancer, she's really humble and a great friend. Way to go, Lilly!

12 Elliana Walmsley

A fantastic dancer (always reminded me of Maddie) very well rounded and I feel like you are really drawn to watching her. A lot of emotion as well when she dances. She is an amazing soloist, a fabulous duet partner and always proves herself in the group dancer.

Elliana was in seasons 6 7 and 8 and she was my favorite in season 8. She is my third favorite out of every girl plus brady on the show ever.

She is the best dancer ever. She is the most flexible person I have ever seen . Guess what , she is better than lily k

I haven't really know her but she is as flexible as lilliana and I know they are friends.

13 JoJo Siwa Joelle Joni Siwa, also known as Jojo Siwa is an American dancer, singer, actress, and YouTuber. She joined the masked singer in 2020.

Jojo wasn't the best dancer but she had something almost none of the other dancers had: her energy. She was amazing at Hip-Hop and Jazz, she was loud and confident. She was also really flexible! She was a kind girl and is not as bad as people say she is!

Jojo was amazing on dance moms but now she is making millions singer, dancing, and being extremely popular on social media. She has been thriving ever since she joined the ALDC.

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.

JoJo is loud and crazy and that what makes her special, she may not be the best but she is a decent dancer! She is really good at jazz and everybody thinks she's childish but no JoJo has an amazing personality. Everyone said she was crazy and loud but JoJo didn't make that stop her she kept going! Love you JoJo

14 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.

15 Camryn Bridges

She is really good and joined in season 7. Her mother is really funny! She is like another dancer Nia

Camryn was in season 7 and she was a good dancer still to this day.

She is an amazing dancer I love her and she suits in season 7 well

16 Payton Ackerman

Payton was a great I mean best hip hopper but I think she was an awesome person.

She was so hated yet still really good at hiphop. Too underrated and edited by the producers

She might not be good but that is not just her its her mum but payton can be nice

17 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

Maesi is a queen, she was so fierce and strong. Go girl!

Maesi isn't the best at lyrical or contemporary but she slays at hiphop!

18 Brady Farrar

Brady being the permanent team, the only boy and he is a good dancer.

Could be the next Maddie on the season 8 team in my opinion!

Brady's basically Abby's season 8 fave, so why not him?

He is my second favorite from season 8.

19 Asia Monet Ray

Asia was a huge ball of energy and such a positive, fresh breath of air for the studio. Every solo she did was beyond competitive-it was straight up entertaining! She portrayed many characters and really should've been on the show longer!

Honestly both she and her mom were awesome team players, didn't ever give a dang to the drama, and never shed a tear on the show. Asia never lost a solo for Abby. If she stayed on the show I think she would've advanced to where Maddie was.

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!

She is a great dancer but she is a show off to Mackenzie, so I am glad she left even though JoJo stole some of Mackenzie's spotlight. 93/100

20 Areana Lopez

She is an amazing turner

21 Peyton Evans

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

Not really my thing

22 Sarah Hunt
23 Alexus Oladi

Alexus was a bit overlooked by Abby. She was quite talented and had lots of spirit and energy. Although she wasn't the best mini there, she at least should've gotten credit for what she can do.

Her mom is really pushy though, she tries to convince Abby that Alexus is the best mini on the mini team. That's a bit selfish and unfair to the other girls.

Alexus needs a little work on her technique.

24 Hannah Colin

Even though she's shy off stage when she gets on stage she dances her heart out. Not to mention that her mother has to be the nicest there. She obviously has social anxiety and has not warmed up to the camera crew and all that yet. But hopefully in future episodes we get to see her happy talking. Also for the people saying that she doesn't talk which is bad Lilianna didn't talk for the first few episodes she was on so..
I personally love Hannah and she's my favourite dance on season 8 and can't wait to see how far she will come

Hannah it seems you're such a sweet,shy girl. I believe you're beautiful and very talented. I can see that you're working on speaking up, good job!

25 Jade Cloud

Jade is a very technical dancer and she has great facial expressions I love her
