Chloe Lukasiak isn’t just living on the dance floor. Following her leave from Lifetime’s “Dance Moms” last fall, the performer has filmed music videos, modeled, won multiple awards and, of course, continued to perfect her craft, but according to her latest interviews, she has another career move up her sleeve.
During her appearance on “The Doctors” Tuesday, Chloe, 14, dished about a new upcoming business venture. “I have a line coming out with two major retail[ers] that I’m really excited about,” she said. “I can’t say who but I’m going to announce it soon!”
Chloe teased a similar announcement during a recent sit down Seventeen magazine. “I have other really exciting news that I can’t really say anything about,” she said during a Periscope interview. “It will be announced soon. I promise!”
Since quitting the Lifetime series, Chloe has been keeping busy. She left Abby Lee Miller’s ALDC (Abby Lee Dance Company) to study at Studio 19 in Pittsburgh. She has also starred in music videos for artists Jess Godwin and Bianca Ryan. On Aug. 16, her dancing skills earned her the Choice Dancer award at the 2015 Teen Choice Awards. Several days later she received another honor, being named Favorite Dancer 17 & Under at the 2015 Industry Dance Awards.
Chloe’s main reason for appearing on “The Doctors” was to discuss her recent eye surgery. After discovering she suffered from silent sinus system, which causes eye asymmetry and can sometimes learn to vision issues, one year ago, she underwent a procedure last month to correct it.
“It went really well,” Chloe said. “The surgeons said that it went exactly how it should have and she was really happy with the results. I’m recovering well. It’s still a still swollen but it is healing every day."
Chloe’s mom, Christi Lukasiak, said she was proud of her daughter’s decision to open up about her medical issue, especially due to the negative comments she had received about her appearance. Before appearing on the talk show Chloe discussed her medical ailment, which can cause eye asymmetry, in a YouTube video for Seventeen.
“I thought that it was amazing how when Chloe put that video out, not that she was just sharing a story, but more importantly how many people came back and said, ‘This is my insecurity.’ And how many people looked up to her and said, ‘This is amazing that you’re sharing it’ because it was never intended to be that," Christi said. "I thought that it was really inspiring to see so many young women, and men, and even adults sharing their story because of her.”
