Live Nation is proud to announce for the first time together in New Zealand two of the world’s most exciting young dancers, MADDIE and MACKENZIE ZIEGLER. The Ziegler Girls are bringing an all new, up close and personal experience with their fans that will include a dance masterclass, Q&A, meet and greet and an ultimate fan event.
Teen dance prodigy Maddie Ziegler became an overnight internet sensation after appearing in singer-songwriter Sia’s ‘Chandelier’ music video in May 2014. Since then, Maddie has starred in four more of Sia’s videos, gaining over 3 billion views worldwide; joined Sia on tour; and performed on Saturday Night Live, The Ellen DeGeneres Show, and the 2015 Grammy Awards. She shows no signs of slowing down, expanding her resume to include actress, model, fashion designer, and New York Times best-selling author.
Following in her older sister’s footsteps, Mackenzie Ziegler has been dancing since the age of two. In 2011, Mackenzie, her sister Maddie and their mother Melissa Gisoni were cast on Lifetime’s hit reality TV series Dance Moms, which allowed Mackenzie to grow as an artist and pursue other passions such as acting and singing. Mackenzie’s music videos have received collectively over 150 million views to date. Her debut album soared to #1 on the iTunes Pop Charts. 2017 marked the start of live touring for Mackenzie as she embarked on the Day & Night tour with Johnny Orlando. She can currently be seen starring in the Youtube series Total Eclipse for the digital network Brat, and for which she is an Executive Producer.
On social media, Maddie and Mackenzie have a combined 25 million+ followers and are positive role models for young women everywhere.
The Ziegler Girls are also excited to welcome Marko Panzic and The Dream Team for the 2018 tour. Marko is one of Australia’s most successful choreographers, who has worked with many of the world’s finest recording artists including Ricky Martin, Jason Derulo, Jessica Mauboy, will.i.am, Delta Goodrem, Dami Im and many more.
Along with Maddie and Mackenzie, Marko and The Dream Team will take their fans through The Ultimate Dancer Masterclass – an enjoyable and unique training opportunity for young dancers of any age. There are also fan meet-and greet and GA Spectator tickets available, as well as a special Q & A with ultimate Dance Mom Melissa Gisoni.
