    The WPXI Holiday Parade is excited to announce that dancers Maddie and Mackenzie Ziegler from the hit TV show Dance Moms will be joining the parade this year! The sisters were born here in Pittsburgh, which is also where the Abby Lee Miller studio for Dance Moms is located.

    Maddie, 14, has starred in several of pop-superstar Sia’s music videos and has made appearances on The Ellen Show, SNL, and was a judge on Fox’s So You Think You Can Dance: The Next Generation. A budding actress Maddie has made appearances on popular TV shows such as “Austin & Ally” and “Pretty Little Liars.”  Maddie performed at the 2015 Grammy Awards and has received both a People and Teen’s Choice Award.

    Maddie’s younger sister Mackenzie, 12, starred alongside her in Dance Moms. Like her sister, Mackenzie has made several television appearances on shows such as “The Today Show” and Nickelodeon's "Nicky, Ricky, Dicky, & Dawn". Mackenzie has gone on to become a recording artist releasing her debut album “It’s A Girl’s Party” which had a single that reached #1 on the ITunes pop chart. Fittingly for our event, Mackenzie has also released several holiday singles, “Christmas All Year Long” and “Sleigh Ride”.
