The explosive drama on season 4 of Dance Moms left viewers reeling…and Abby Lee Miller without three of her dancers. While off-screen courtroom drama has kept former cast member Paige Hyland and her mother Kelly in headlines in recent months, former dancer Chloe Lukasiak has remained mostly out of the spotlight…until now!
During the season 4 finale, Chloe and her mom Christi left the Abby Lee Dance Company for good. After seasons of what she called “bullying” by the dance instructor, Christi put her foot down and walked out when Abby referred to Chloe as “washed up.” The end-of-season reunion show was the Lukasiaks’ last appearance on the show, and according to Christi, the last time they stepped foot in Abby’s studio.
Since leaving Dance Moms and the ALDC, Chloe and Christi have spent time traveling around the United States and Europe for press tours and meet and greet sessions. In January, Chloe announced to fans on her YouTube channel that she was working with a new studio, Studio 19 Dance Complex.
On Monday, Chloe took to Twitter to share a group photo of her team at a dance competition, along with the hashtag #nationalchamps, indicating that Studio 19 took home a big win.

In the months since she left the show, Chloe has modeled dancewear for the Just for Kix catalog and was a cover model for Nation-Alist Magazine. She was also featured showing off her talents in a Bianca Ryan music video for the song Alice.
The most exciting news for the 14-year-old-dancer, however, is that she has been nominated for the Choice Dancer award at the 2015 Teen Choice Awards. The winner will be announced at the live Teen Choice Awards on August 16 at 8/7c on FOX. Maddie Ziegler, featured on Dance Moms and music videos including Sia’s Chandelier, is also nominated for the award.
Even though Chloe has left the team, the rest of the ALDC dancers can be seen on Dance Moms, airing Tuesdays at 9/8c on Lifetime.
