Former Dance Moms star Maddie Ziegler exclusively chatted with J-14 about how Sia has changed her perspective on dance, her favorite dance memory and how important it is to spend time with her family. According to the star, it’s very important. Maddie was promoting Kalahari Resort in the Poconos which is the largest indoor waterpark in the world. It’s safe to say that her next family vacation might actually take her back to the land of waterslides and fun. Do we think she’d ever bring her boyfriend Jack Kelly along for the trip? We asked her all about that too!

Aside from vacation and her dance career, Maddie also let us in on a couple projects she has coming out including the fiction book she wrote titled, “The Audition” which comes out TODAY. Not only that but she is also going back on tour with Sia next month to Australia and New Zealand. Clearly, this gal has a lot of super exciting stuff coming up and she wants to share it all with her fans.

Watch the video and check out what Maddie had to say about dancing with Sia and spending time with her family.
