Mackenzie Ziegler

Full name: Mackenzie Frances Ziegler, also called Kenzie, is an eight-year-old dancer at the Abby Lee Dance Company. She was born on June 4, 2004 to Kurt and Melissa Ziegler, and is the younger sister of Maddie Ziegler. Her parents are divorced, allegedly because dance got in the way of their marriage. Mackenzie's father has two sons, Ryan and Tyler, from a previous relationship. Apart from dance, both Mackenzie and her sister take voice lessons. (She is in third grade.)

Mackenzie excels at acro, and her sense of humor is regularly highlighted in brief interviews on Dance Moms episodes. Outside of the show, Mackenzie dances with a different group at the studio, but her mother wanted her to appear on television alongside Maddie
