Nia Sioux has been entertaining audiences with her fab dance skills since 2011, when "Dance Moms" first aired. Now, two music videos and an acting gig (on the daytime TV series "The Bold and the Beautiful"), later Sioux is proving that she's more than just a triple threat—she's a star. And last week when Sioux debuted in North Carolina Theatre's production of Aladdin and His Winter Wish, she was every bit that star. Sioux opened up to Dance Spirit about her transition from comp kid to a triple threat and offered advice for young dancers hoping to follow in her footsteps.
Are you staring at a seemingly endless Nutcracker run, looming finals, holiday shopping and bad weather? Do you need something to keep you going through the end of year?
Try "Breathe," a new song by L.A. based indie musician Alexx Calise. It features Nia Sioux, of "Dance Moms," twirling up a storm in a gorgeous loft apartment, and even jumping in on vocals during the chorus. Go Nia!
