Dance Moms

Let’s be real. At one point or another, we have all wondered which original Dance Moms dancer we are most alike. Each person’s dance experience is different, and reality TV is far from typical, but it’s easy to see yourself in long practices, sparkly costumes, stage fright, disappointment, and successes. Whether you’re very outspoken like JoJo or more quiet and funny like Kenzie, there’s a little bit of Dance Moms in all of us.

You are Maddie if…


You are maybe considered a “teacher’s pet” or the favorite of the group. You love to be a perfectionist and try your absolute hardest at everything whether that’s a new dance or a math quiz. In your free time, you are usually doing extra training such as learning new turn combos or leaps. You are not very outspoken and would rather stay quiet than cause a conflict with someone else. 

You are Jojo if…


You are not afraid to be yourself! You show up every day as the most authentic version of yourself from your unique outfits to your bubbly personality. You might like jazz and contemporary more because they allow you to really let your personality shine through. You have a contagious smile and can make anyone laugh!

You are Nia if… 


You find that your friends and family typically come to you for advice. You might even be considered the mom of the group. You are hardworking and always want to be your best, and you are usually not afraid to fight for it. Bonus points if leaps are your specialty.

You are Chloe if…


You always want to help people and try to be genuinely nice to everybody around you. When you face a challenge, you tackle it head-on and don’t let it stop you. You tend to be in your own world that no one can really shake. Even if someone says something mean, you shake it off and go on with your day.

You are Kendall if…


You sometimes have a hard time standing up for yourself and would rather someone else do it for you. You have a fear of never being good enough but you use it as fuel to keep trying. You always encourage your friends behind the stage and make sure they are confident. 

You are Kenzie if…


You have a hard time fitting in with a group and are always trying to keep up with everyone around you. You have a big heart which means you take things more seriously which sometimes means you just need to have a good cry. You are sweet and keep whoever you are around in a fun and light-hearted mood.

You are Kalani if…


You have a little bit of sass but also take everything you do seriously. You are not afraid of a bit of competition and are always up for the challenge. Lyrical is one of your favorite styles and you are pretty good at it, too. You like to hype up your friends and make sure everyone gets a chance to shine in what they are good at.
