On Dance Moms

  • She appeared for the ALDC in Another One Bites the Dust. She had attended auditions for the Junior Select team at the time of two earlier episodes, Abby Strikes Back (in Florida) and Big Trouble in the Big Apple (in New York). Abby explained that she was at the top of those she hadn't picked for the new team, and following Ava's departure, brought Kaleigh into the ALDC in order to test her suitability. Kate also explained that her daughter was good in musical theatre, as they were doing that week for the group dance.


  • For the group dance "The Seven Dancers," she was nicknamed "Smiley."
  • Her mom is a dance teacher.
  • Both her mom and Tracey Reasons have said they are actually friends.[5]
  • They attended Booty Camp in August, 2014.[6]
  • The week prior to filming in Orlando for Another One Bites the Dust, Kaleigh, her mom, and other teammates from their home studio seem to have been at the Sheer Talent competition in Wayne, NJ, filmed for The Understudies.[7][8]
  • By the end of 2014, she had won three national titles.[9]
