7 Maddie Ziegler Quotes From ‘Dance Moms’ That Will Inspire You To Put On Your Dancing Shoes


So, if you watch the show, you know Lifetime’s Dance Moms can be a little intense. From the choreography to the competition to the attitude, this reality show can take anything and everything to the extreme. And, while some of the drama can get pretty cringe-worthy, the show is a popular TV staple because it is filled with major talent and quotable gems. But, coach Abby Lee Miller isn't the only one with great one-liners. These Maddie Ziegler quotes are equally awesome, and a lot more unique than the cliche "Dance like no one's watching."

Throughout the series, all of the girls have had some pretty great one-liners. (Like when little sis Mackenzie Ziegler said what we all feel, “I just want to stay at home and eat chips.”) But, in Maddie’s rise to fame as a music video star in Sia’s “Chandelier,” “Elastic Heart,” and “Big Girls Cry” videos, she has also become a pop-culture icon. In that time, Maddie has motivated us all with her quotable words of wisdom.
