Here's A Life Update On 17 Of The Kids From "Dance Moms"

They're ~livin' on the dance floor.~

The last episode of Dance Moms several years ago, if you can believe it. The drama between the titular moms and Abby Lee Miller gave us the show's most buzzworthy moments, but there's no denying that it helped launch the careers of some of Gen-Z's biggest stars.

Here's a look at what the young cast members have been up to since their time on the show ended:
