Since she left the show, Dance Moms star Chloe Lukasiak keeps fans updated through Instagram and her YouTube channel. And, she's had a lot of amazing things to share with us! Her most recent accomplishment was a well-deserved "Choice Dancer" win at the Teen Choice Awards. Chloe gave an inspiring speech to her fans and everyone watching the broadcast: "To anyone who's been told they can't do it, shouldn't do it, or they aren't good enough... ignore it, do it anyway, and prove them wrong!"
The beloved fan favorite departed Dance Moms at the end of Season 4 and, although we miss watching her dance on TV every week, it's clear that leaving the ALDC was a wise decision. Chloe looks happier than ever and she is thriving both personally and professionally. Chloe always made clear that she wanted to maintain normalcy in her life — and she's found the perfect balance of perfecting her art in the studio, attending school full-time, meeting fans all over the world, and spending plenty of quality time at home in Pennsylvania with her family.
Here are 10 Instagram posts from Chloe that highlight what she's been up to since leaving Dance Moms:
