Chloe Elizabeth Lukasiak is a dancer, an actress and a model. Born in May 2001, she was raised in Churchill (Pittsburgh), PA. Since 2014, she has lived in Mars, PA with her parents, Marc and Christi, and sister Clara. The family also maintains an apartment in Los Angeles due to her many commitments there. Her father works in marketing at the Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh. Chloe began dancing at age 2, competing from age 4 to 13 for the Abby Lee Dance Company. Her titles include: 2011 National Miss Small Fry (Dance Educators of America), 2011 Junior Miss Dance of Pennsylvania (DMA), and 2012 National Junior Miss Energy (Energy Dance Competition). She also competed two numbers (musical theatre and ballet) in the 2011 Philadelphia YAGP Semi-Finals, placing in the top 12 in the Pre-Competitive division. From age 9 to 13, Chloe was an original cast member of the reality dance show “Dance Moms,” appearing in seasons 1-4. From the first episode, Chloe’s sweet and modest nature, along with her natural balletic talent, won her many fans throughout the world. During her time on the show, she portrayed young Lux in the music video “It’s Like Summer” and appeared in co-star Brooke Hyland’s music video, “Summer Love Song.” She also modeled, won several special competition awards, and appeared on talk shows such as “The View,” “Katie,” “Showbiz Tonight,” and “Anderson Cooper.” Throughout the series, she competed over 45 solos, as well as many duets and trios and most group dances. Conflict between her mother and Abby Lee Miller created a hostile environment, and Chloe left first the ALDC, and finally “Dance Moms” in 2014. In high demand now that she was free of the ALDC, Chloe was invited to be a demonstrator and assistant for Blake McGrath in the VIP Dance Events convention (Calgary, Oct. 2014). She became a spokes-model as well as a catalog model for Just for Kix, a dance-wear company, partnering with them for an anti-bullying video and campaign called #Nobody is You. Chloe continued her dance training at Studio 19 Dance Complex near Pittsburgh, joining their award-winning competition team for their Spring 2015 season. One of her dances was an anti-suicide duet with Madelyne Spang. Then she joined the Triple Threat Tour as a guest performer and assistant for several dance conventions in 2015/2016. Chloe has posted many professionally-filmed dance videos on her Youtube channel, as well as being cast as the lead in several videos by other artists from 2014-2017. One of her dance performances, filmed with transgender vocalist Aly J, was featured on CNN. She filmed two dance-themed promotional spots for Playtex Sport and an anti-bullying dance video for Seventeen Magazine. In August 2015 she won the very first “Choice Dancer” Teen Choice Award, as well as “Favorite Dancer 17 and Under” Award at the Industry Dance Awards. Since the age of 10, Chloe has modeled for several companies, such as Oxyjen, Tutu DuMonde, Cicci’s Costumes, Sally Miller, and, more recently, 90 Degrees of Reflex, GoodHyouman, and Boy Meets Girl. In 2016 she walked the runway for Max Azria BCBG, and in Sept 2017 she was the representative of JustFab’s “Rocking Ballerina” clothing collection. Her fashion knowledge was put to good use in two seasons of “ReadySetStyle,” a web series on go90 app/awesomeness.TV. During NY Fashion Week in Feb. 2018, Chloe became a “Gelwick Girl,” being styled by Andrew Gelwick for her book tour and several fashion shows. In 2015, Chloe was cast in a supporting role in “Center Stage: On Pointe,” the third movie in the popular “Center Stage” dance movie series. She learned how to do partner ballet en pointe for the role. Following this, she was cast as a supporting actress in the Bailee Madison movie “A Cowgirl’s Story,” the lead in a science-fiction thriller called “Loophole” and supporting roles in “F.R.E.D.I.” and “The Message.” Her most recent casting has been in “Next Level,” a dance movie set for release in 2019. Chloe has filmed over 60 episodes of various series, including two seasons of her own dance tutorial show on the Ownzones network, 16 episodes of “Wicked Weekly” (a promotional Internet/TV series for Disney’s “Descendants 2), and an eight-episode series called “Chloe Does It,” which was broadcast along with Season 7B of Dance Moms in Summer 2017. She also appeared in a humorous between-seasons promo for NBC’s “Super Store.” Chloe’s well-publicized return to “Dance Moms,” beginning with a post-competition visit to the team in Dec. 2016, evolved into her rejoining the show for season 7B. She danced for Murrietta Dance Factory for 2 competitions before finally reuniting with her old ALDC teammates, who had just quit the ALDC. The new team, The Irreplaceables, worked with Aisha Francis, Ryan Ramirez, and Cheryl Burke from Dancing With the Stars. Chloe competed in six group dances, one duet (with Nia Sioux Frazier) and one solo. After filming ended, she joined Kendall Vertes and Kalani Hilliker for an Irreplaceables world tour, for which Chloe performed three new group dances, two duets, and a solo. Chloe maintains a huge social media presence, with millions of followers on Facebook, YouTube, Twitter, SnapChat and Instagram. For her Youtube channel, she has filmed many DIY, challenge, tour vlogs, and Q&A videos inviting fans into her personal life. She remains a consistent presence in online polls about dancing and fashion; among her wins are the CelebMix 2016 “Best Dancer” contest, Twist’s 2016 “Trendsetter of the Year,” J14’s 2016 “Icon of the Year,” and Tiger Beat’s 2017 “Girl Power Icon of the Year.” Chloe was invited to the United Nations in 2016 for Peace Day, returning to speak in 2017. She also contributed a piece detailing her experience with overcoming bullying in the 2016 book “Ignite!”. On social media, she has come out in support of immigrants, LGBTQ youth, mental health support, anti-drug pledges, preventing school shootings, and promoting kindness. In 2018, her first book, “Girl On Pointe,” was published, along with a well-attended book tour. In partnership with Barnes & Noble and Girl’s Life Magazine, she started “Chloe’s Book Club,” with monthly book recommendations, recaps, discussion questions and commentary. Chloe is an honor student who loves to read, bake, and relax with friends when she’s not dancing, modeling, or acting. She continues to share her life with her fans every day…. first love, first breakup, attending prom, getting her driver’s license, learning new dances, celebrating her Sweet Sixteen, family game nights, taking her SAT’s, and vacationing with her family, including her beloved little sister, Clara.
