Maddie Ziegler Recalled the Time Sia Turned Into a ‘Stage Mom’


Sia has been protective of Maddie Ziegler since the day the pair first met. After watching many episodes of Dance Moms, the Australian singer found herself emotionally moved by the dancer’s performances. So when it came time to cast someone to play her in her music video of her, chandelier, Ziegler was her top choice. She reached out to the then 11-year-old dancer on Twitter, and eventually, Ziegler and her mom, Melissa Gisoni, decided that they’d say yes to the job.

Sia has always felt very protective over Maddie Ziegler

Soon after, Ziegler found herself on set shooting the wildly popular music video. And while the West Side Story Actor didn’t think anyone would see the video, she recalls Sia being particularly moved by her work. In fact, Ziegler has shared that the “Move Your Body” singer was moved to tears the very first time she performed the choreography for her.
