'Dance Moms' Alum Maddie Ziegler Talks Leaving Lifetime Show, Being Recognized By Fans

"Dance Moms" alum Maddie Ziegler finally opened up about leaving the hit Lifetime reality TV show. While at the Kids' Choice Awards last weekend, the 13-year-old said that she's sad because she had to leave "Dance Moms," but she is looking forward to her upcoming ventures. "I am leaving, but it'll be a good thing because we're moving on to cool things," she told People. Ziegler left the show alongside her younger sister Mackenzie and mom Melissa Gisoni after the 18th episode for season 6. Following her departure, Ziegler has signed on to appear as a judge in the upcoming new season of "So You Think You Can Dance: The Next Generation." Talking about her new show, the 13-year-old professional dancer said that she's looking forward to helping young dancers hone their talents.


"I'm looking forward to it because I feel like kids are so good these days," she said. Meanwhile, the "Big Girls Cry" dancer also talked about the first time a fan noticed her after appearing on "Dance Moms." According to her, she was about eight years old and was buying ice cream outside when a fan walked up to her. "I was little freaked out that someone knew me coz I wasn't used to it, and I was really little. I was like, 'someone knows me?' That's kinda weird, but it was really cool. I was like, 'I wonder if this was gonna happen a lot,'" she said. In other news, the Ziegler siblings appeared on Tuesday night's episode of "Dance Moms" season 6. However, the older Ziegler was the only one who had a chance to perform a solo dance number and join the group dance. Mackenzie was at the Hollywood Vibe so she didn't take part in ALDC's contemporary group dance "The Vultures," according to the show's spoiler site. "Dance Moms" season 6 airs Tuesdays at 9 p.m. ET on Lifetime.
