Family time together is the foundation of building strong, long-lasting relationships. It’s how families invest in one another and grow together. Sometimes the perfect moments of family togetherness come during a road trip.

Teen dance prodigy Maddie Ziegler knows a lot about the importance of family time!  She became an overnight internet sensation after appearing in singer-songwriter Sia’s “Chandelier” music video in May 2014. The video has since garnered over 1.5 billion views, and in the last three years, Maddie has starred in five more of Sia’s videos, joined her on tour and performed on several national broadcasts including “Saturday Night Live,” “The Ellen DeGeneres Show,” and the 2015 Grammy Awards. She has shown no signs of slowing down, expanding her resume to include actress, model, fashion designer, and New York Times Best-selling author.

This past June, Maddie made her big screen debut in Focus Features’ drama THE BOOK OF HENRY, directed by Colin Trevorrow, starring alongside Naomi Watts, Jacob Tremblay, Sarah Silverman and Lee Pace. She also recently lent her voice to the animated feature LEAP! starring Elle Fanning and Nat Wolff. Maddie recently wrapped production on Sia’s untitled feature directorial debut.

On March 7, 2017, Maddie released “The Maddie Diaries,” a memoir about how she followed her dreams and worked hard to achieve success. The book debuted on the New York Times best seller list and remained there for several weeks. This Fall, Aladdin Books will release “The Audition,” the first in a trilogy of young adult novels by Maddie about competitive dance.?

In Fall 2016, Maddie unveiled her first clothing line MADDIE for girls and juniors. The collection can be found online at and in select Nordstrom stores across the country.

Her television credits include “Pretty Little Liars,” “Austin & Ally,” and “Nicky, Ricky, Dicky & Dawn.” In Summer 2016, Maddie was the youngest judge on FOX’s “So You Think You Can Dance: The Next Generation” alongside Paula AbdulJason Derulo, and Nigel Lythgoe.
