It’s been almost a decade since fans first met Maddy Ziegler And Kenzie Ziegler On dance Moms.
The show premiered in 2011 – when the sisters were 8 and 6 respectively – and quickly became a hit.
During a conversation for Elite Daily, Maddy, now remembering 14-year-old Kenzie, says, “We were thrown out of school every day for dancing and filming TV shows, so it wasn’t normal at all.” “We didn’t even finish [at our] Primary school, because we got fired a lot for work. And then once we started traveling, people started recognizing us. I remember we were in an ice cream shop and someone called our name, and we were very scared. Like, how did these people know us? And then we realized, oh, there’s a lot of attention around our show.

While Kenzie admitted that it was “unusual” to grow up in the headlines, she also said that she does not remember what life was like before.
