About a month ago my husband pulled up a chair to the computer and said,"watch this." That was the beginning of my love affair with "Chandelier" by Sia. It also marks the moment I declared I needed to get my girls into dance. Like yesterday.
The song is haunting but the dance is what makes the video...and the little girl is 11 years old. Her name is Maddie Ziegler and, man, can that girl dance.
It started with a Tweet. “Hey, Maddie, would you like to be in my new video for my new song ‘Chandelier?’” was the tweet that launced a little girl to stardom, not that Maddie wasn't already pretty popular. She's on Dance Moms! But her notoriety from this video has far surpassed her fame on Dance Moms. If you haven't seen the video, here is your chance to check it out. Just know I warned you, you will be calling dance schools after watching this.
