'Dance Moms' Nia, Chloe, Kalani & Kendall Share The Most Stunning Selfie Ever

We can’t get over just how stunning this shot of Nia Sioux, Chloe Lukasiak, Kendall Vertes and Kalani Hilliker is!

Shared by Nia on her Instagram, the Dance Moms girls prove that they’re still the closest of friends off screen.

“There’s a lot of pressure that comes with being in front of cameras, which gets stressful,” Kalani shared with Dance Spirit magazine.

She adds that her introduction to the show — through Abby’s Ultimate Dance Competition — was only supposed to be for one episode. Instead, she stayed for the whole season, and three more.

“I was never supposed to be on Dance Moms beyond that one performance,” Kalani shared. “It was my first time, but not my last time, causing drama.”

“It was also the first time I got to meet the other dancers, who have become like sisters.”

We are better together??????

Chloe Lukasiak Says Cheryl Burke Was The Perfect Coach For 'Dance Moms' Final Season

Chloe Lukasiak is back with an all-new season of Dance Moms tonight!

Speaking with Wetpaint in NYC this week, the actress/dancer dished about having Cheryl Burke come into the show as the new coach for the team.

“She’s amazing, I love Cheryl,” she shared. “She’s very encouraging and instead of being degrading about our differences, our weaknesses, and our strengths.

“She would focus on how to bring out each of our strengths and how to capitalize on that.”

Chloe also revealed that having Cheryl there as someone who knows almost everything about the business they’re in, was great.

“It was really amazing to be working with someone who is in this business and understands what you’re going through,” Chloe said. “She’s so encouraging, she’s so nice, she’s a tough teacher, but she’s not mean.”

Dance Moms is back on Lifetime TONIGHT @ 9PM ET/PT.

Chloe Lukasiak Reveals Why She's Going Back To 'Dance Moms'

Chloe Lukasiak announced a very major thing this morning — she’s returning to Dance Moms for their upcoming season.

If you remember, the last time the actress/dancer was on the show, it wasn’t exactly pleasant and her exit was dramatic. So, why is she going back?

“Some people have asked us why we would go back, but I think it’s important that I do,” she shared with Seventeen magazine. “It was unfinished business for me.”

She adds, “I’ve now been able to close that chapter and move on. You just have to ignore what people are saying and do what’s right for you.”

So, was it weird to actually be around all those cameras again?

“The weird thing was that it wasn’t weird,” Chloe says. “Even though for two years I learned how to live without the cameras around.”

Chloe is pictured below at Nia Sioux‘s sweet 16 birthday party in Los Angeles.
