Nia Sioux was just 9 times old when she first rotated and bounded across our television defenses dressed in glittery costumes and various leotards, dancing in competitions on the Continuance reality series” cotillion mothers.”
The monstrously successful show followed a group of girls( and their mothers) aged six to 16 who were training to come professional hop under the education of controversial cotillion trainer Abby Lee Miller. She appeared on the show for its first seven seasons before leaving in 2017.
Since also, Sioux’s kept busy. She’s had multitudinous acting places and lately released music and spent times erecting up her platform as a social media influencer.
Now 21, she’s studying American Literature at UCLA. She also has a concerted 15 million followers across TikTok, YouTube, and Instagram, and works with brands similar drink company SunnyD, hosting addict competitions and promoting wares as part of a patronized cooperation.
But growing a social media presence was not just a smart career choice — it’s helped her process and open up about her gests as a child star, despite being girdled by online druggies who do not want to see her grow up, she toldInsider.Some of Sioux’s foremost social media trials took place onMusical.ly, a now-defunct social media platform substantially used for lip- syncing and dancing.
Sioux began posting lip- syncMusical.ly vids when she was 15, frequently rephotographing with other cast members from” Dance mothers,” including Kendall Vertes and MaddieZiegler.Sioux told Insider she considers the vids” cute for the time, but now they are just a bit cringey.”
Also TikTok balls came a viral mode during the epidemic. Sioux took part in them because she allowed
they were” fun” and allowed her to keep participating her dancing with suckers.
The vids snappily racked up millions of views and still perform well. A single 19-alternate clip Sioux posted to TikTok in January dancing to the song” Boss Ladies” by Photronique has14.8 million views.
As someone who used to contend in regular cotillion competitions, Sioux said producing cotillion content for TikTok feels” veritably different, because TikTok balls are only, like, 15 seconds, and a cotillion routine is around three twinkles long.”
But, she added,” I am not indeed going to lie, some of the TikTok balls are super active and tiring. It can be exhausting.”
