Nia Sioux Frazier is a dancer, training at the Abby Lee Dance Company since the age of three.[6] She is the daughter of Evan and Holly Frazier, and the sister of Evan and William Frazier.

Abby has had Nia portray many different ethnicities, such as Indian, but Holly doesn't like it. Although Abby doesn't give her the most attention, Nia is considered to be very hard-working. Her favorite styles of dance are contemporary and musical theatre.[7]

In early 2016, it was rumored that Nia had left the ALDC but will continue to compete under the company for the show.

    Nia: I definitely will be dancing with the ALDC next season.
    Christy Olson: Is that a "I already signed the contract"?
    Holly: No, it's not so much that we signed a contract...
    Nia: I danced there since I was three.
    Holly: Right. We've been here a long time... I really do think she likes Nia quite a bit. I don't know if she cares for me so much, but she does care for Nia. So.
