Chloe Lukasiak isn’t letting her decision to part ways with “Dance Moms” slow her down. While her former castmates embark on different ventures in the entertainment business — from magazine spreads, to YouTube and music videos — Chloe has been creating her own career path.
Following her buzzworthy appearance on the orange carpet at the Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards in March, the 13-year-old dancer hit the red carpet at the 2015 Radio Disney Music Awards in Los Angeles Saturday. And while she may no longer have coach and star maker Abby Lee Miller as her manager, she doesn't appear to be struggling for fame. In a series of photos she posted to Instagram, she can be seen posing with the likes of actors Dove Cameron, Tiffany Espensen, Kat McNamara and singer Ricky Garcia at the event.
Another famous face Chloe met up with at the show: Lori Lively. When she’s not working with her Studio 19 dance teachers in Pittsburgh, it appears Chloe has found inspiration in Lively, the “acting coach to the stars." For those not in the known, Lori is the big sister of “Gossip Girl” and “Age of Adaline” actress Blake Lively.
“Great night @radiodisney with @chloelukasiak33!!!” Lively posted to Instagram Saturday alongside a video of herself dancing and singing along to a live performance of Nick Jonas' "Jealous" with Chloe at the awards show.
Chloe seems to be equally enamored by the acting coach. “I had the best time at the Radio Disney Music awards yesterday!” Chloe captioned an image of herself posing with Lively at the event. “Thank you so much @lorilively #actinglively.”
But it’s not just awards show Chloe has been frequently recently. On Monday, the former “Dance Moms” lead made a cameo on Season 20 of ABC’s dance competition series “Dancing with the Stars.”
“Had such a great time at #DWTS yesterday,” Chloe posted to Instagram Tuesday with a photo of herself posing with contestant and Olympic athlete Nastia Liukin. “Be sure to call and vote for her,” she added.
While Chloe and her mom, Christi Lukasiak, can no longer be seen on “Dance Moms,” you can catch up with the dancer’s former teammates and their mothers Tuesdays at 9 p.m. EST on Lifetime.
