Kalani Brooke Hilliker[3] (born September 23, 2000) is a dancer from Club Dance in Arizona. Her mother is Kira Girard.

Kalani was first featured on the second season of Abby's Ultimate Dance Competition, where she quickly became Abby's favorite due to her flexibility, technique and having the natural look of a dancer. She was initially eliminated in Vegas Show Stoppers after giving a weak hip hop performance but was brought back in the following episode thanks to Abby's call-back card. Kalani advanced all the way to the final four, where she was finally eliminated during the group challenge.

After AUDC concluded, Kalani was asked to join the Abby Lee Dance Company elite team. She made her debut on the show in Big Trouble in the Big Apple and remained on the show until Presenting My New Team, after which Kalani and her mother decided to return to Arizona, with Kira explaining that family was more important to her than fame.[4]

Despite this, Kalani and Kira were later invited back the following season, after the departure of Christi and Chloe Lukasiak.

Other InformationEdit

  • She has been dancing since she was two years old.[5]
  • When she is older, she would love to be a backup dancer for Beyonce or Katy Perry.[6]
  • She is left-handed.[7]
  • Her first interview on the show was in JoJo with a Bow Bow.
  • In 2015, Addison Moffett and Kalani started their own YouTube channel entitled "KalaniAddy". The two would post new videos on Tuesdays, with the videos tending to focus more on humor than dance. However, in May 2016, all of the videos were suddenly removed from the channel as well as the username being changed to "AddyKaylee". On twitter[8], Kalani confirmed that she had not given Addison permission to keep the channel for herself and that they instead had initially agreed to let the channel "dissolve"[9]. It is believed that the two may no longer be friends.
  • In March 2016, Kalani passed her driver's permit. Meaning she can now drive so long as she is accompanied by an adult.[10]

  • Some of her favorite artists are Ariana Grande, Drake and Rihanna.[11]
  • If she wasn't dancing, she would probably be a soccer player because when she was younger, she was on a club soccer team.[11]
  • She's obsessed with Grey's Anatomy and her favorite characters from the show are Meredith Grey, Derek Shepherd and Cristina Yang.[11]
  • If she could have any animal as a pet, she would choose a finger monkey or a tiny fluffy dog.[11]
  • Kalani's favorite flavor of ice cream is mint chocolate chip.[11]
  • In 2016 she named jazz funk, hip hop and lyrical as being her favorite styles of dance.[12]
