A Visit from Maddie and Chloe

Believe it or not, Dance Spirit editors get star struck too. And that’s exactly what happened when Maddie and Chloe from “Dance Moms” visited our office on Friday. We were totally taken aback by how sincere and mature these little dancers were. And despite their constant competition on the show, they’re clearly close friends in real life. After all, only BFFs could travel the country rocking matching pink outfits.

They were here to show off their new line of jewelry for Glitzy Girl—bracelets with removable, collectible charms that have fun phrases on them. Some of Maddie and Chloe’s favorites said “Team Chloe”, “Team Maddie”, “Black Swan/White Swan” and “Werk!” So cute! Check them out at www.theglitzygirl.com.

While in NYC, the girls also hosted a fashion show and meet-and-greet at the Westchester Mall to support the Anti-Bullying Pledge (www.antibullyingpledge.com). They told us that they’d choreographed their own routine for the show—in the airport! We love to see celebrity kids using their fame and talent for good. Way to go, girls!

Here’s a look at their visit to the DS office:
