Maddie Ziegler 2017: Abby Lee Miller Still Makes Money Using Former 'Dance Moms' Star's Popularity
Maddie Ziegler left "Dance Moms" to seek better opportunities outside the hit Lifetime show. While the "Ballerina" Star is expanding her brand after leaving the show, Abby lee Miller is expanding hers as well.
The Abby Lee Dance Company founder is taking the popularity of her student s an opportunity to gather aspiring dancers in taking her online lessons. The 50-year-old dance instructor started an online tutorial called, "Abby Lee Dance With Me." In this site, viewers will get to learn some dance moves with the help of Abby Lee Miller herself and some of her star dancers, like Maddie Ziegler and Kalani Hilliker.
But here's the catch: the online tutorial comes with a price. Aspirants will have to pay $49.95 to learn the Complete Jazz Course which includes three lessons, and $19.95 for a single lesson. Kalani Hilliker is featured for Lesson 1 and Maddie Ziegler for Lesson 2. Both "Dance Moms" stars will then be featured for the third and final lesson. This goes to show that even though Maddie Ziegler has already moved on from "Dance Moms," she still maintains a close relationship with her former teacher, Abby Lee Miller.
However, their relationship is now more on the business side rather than as teacher and student. It's no secret that Maddie Ziegler has always been Abby Lee Miller's favorite student (as seen on "Dance Moms") even if she is no longer a part of her ALDC Junior Elite Competition Team. Up until now, Abby Lee Miller reminded everyone that she groomed Maddie Ziegler to be the superstar that she is now.
Maddie Ziegler may have started her career in "Dance Moms' but she became a household name after appearing in Sia's "Chandelier" music video. The 41-year-old Australian singer and the "Ballerina" star didn't end their collaboration there, Maddie Ziegler even joined Sia in her recently concluded concert and previous report revealed that the former "Dance Moms" star considers the "Alive" singer her family.
