Welcome to the latest episode of So You Know You Can’t Dance, a new Billboard.com web series in which music biggest stars teach me, the Most Awkward Dancer Alive, some of their moves. My latest choreographer is Maddie Ziegler, the 12-year-old star of Lifetime’s hit series Dance Moms, as well as the pint-sized dancer in Sia‘s much-loved music videos for “Chandelier” and “Elastic Heart.” Maddie taught me some of her moves from “Chandelier” — after I changed into proper attire, of course. Watch all of the action — and follow along with the steps yourself! — below:
Sia’s “Chandelier” video, which stars Ziegler sporting a blonde wig similar to the Australian singer-songwriter’s hairstyle, has been viewed over 450 million times on YouTube and was nominated for the video of the year award at last year’s MTV VMAs. Ziegler has also performed the routine on The Ellen DeGeneres Show and Jimmy Kimmel Live!… but can she successfully show me how to kick, twirl and make crazy eyes for our routine?
Check back with Billboard over the next few weeks for more So You Know You Can’t Dance episodes, and click here to watch Ziegler star alongside Shia LaBeouf in Sia’s new video for “Elastic Heart”!
