Former Dance Moms star Chloe Lukasiak just competed in her biggest competition since leaving Lifetime's Abby Lee Miller show and joining a new studio. Fans still miss her on the show, but everybody loves to follow her now that she's on her own to see how things are going. It's been a pretty great year so far for the teen dancer, and from the looks of things, her big weekend competition went wonderfully.
Chloe Lukasiak shared a photo via her Instagram page, praising her Studio 19 team for their performance at the VIP Dance Nationals finals. They were crowned national champions over the weekend, and the studio shared an update via their Instagram about the competition, as well. It seems that Studio 19 was given the highest scoring group award of the entire competition, for their piece titled "Doesn't Feel Human."
In addition to the group award, Studio 19 earned several other top awards as well. They were given Hollywood studio of the week, top Broadway level, and the highest-scoring choreography award. Many Dance Moms fans were buzzing on Instagram about the studio's fantastic results as they earned top honors in categories across the board, notes the Dance Moms updates Instagram page.
Many Dance Moms fans have been wishing that Lukasiak would get back into doing solos again, but Chloe and her mom, Christi, have previously shared that they are focusing on group performances at this point. Luckily for anxious fans, Chloe does still post some videos of her individual performances on her YouTube page, and she's been featured in some music videos, as well.
Though her last episodes of Dance Moms were emotional and grueling, Lukasiak has seemingly thrived since leaving the show. Chloe and fellow Dance Moms bud Paige Hyland recently did some events together, and Lukasiak even seemingly has a boyfriend now. Chloe is said to be dating Ricky Garcia of the Disney show Best Friends Whenever, and the boy band Forever in Your Mind.
While fans still lament the departure of the Lukasiaks from Dance Moms, they are thrilled to see that Chloe is doing so well on her own. Chloe and Christi have been doing a lot of traveling, and from the looks of things, there are many more projects in the works. Congratulations to Chloe Lukasiak and the Studio 19 team for their great showing at Nationals!
Season 5 of Dance Moms is airing new episodes on Lifetime every Tuesday night, and Season 6 is in the works, as well. Though fans can't see Chloe Lukasiak on television at this point, she does keep supporters updated via social media, and many hope that at some point something new will come together that will bring her back to the small screen.
