Madison "Maddie" Nicole Ziegler (born September 30, 2002) is the eldest child of Melissa Ziegler-Gisoni and Kurt Ziegler and is the sister of Mackenzie.

During her time on Dance Moms, Maddie was known to be Abby's favorite. This often caused tension between the moms and Abby, with them arguing that the other girls deserved just as much attention.

Maddie gained worldwide recognition in 2014 after appearing in the viral music video for Sia's "Chandelier". She has since gone on to become a significant part of Sia's artistic image- appearing in multiple other music videos for the singer as well as touring with her.

Maddie and her family chose to depart from the show mid-Season 6 to pursue other projects.
