Chloé Elizabeth Lukasiak (born May 25, 2001) is an American dancer, actress, and reality television personality. She gained recognition as a child for being an original cast member of Lifetime's reality television series Dance Moms during Season 1 through Season 4, where she quickly became a fan favorite. She later returned in the later half of season 7.

Lukasiak has since transitioned from dancing to acting. Her film roles include Gwen Murphy in Center Stage: On Pointe (2016), Alexandra "Lexi" Smith in Loophole (2017), Savanah Stocker in A Cowgirl's Story (2017), Mallory in F.R.E.D.I (2018), Jasmine Joel in Next Level (2019), Ashley in Beautiful Scars (2020) and Devin Dupree in Camp Arrowhead (2020). Her social media presence includes over 14 million followers across multiple platforms, including Instagram where she has 8 million followers.

Early life

Lukasiak was born on May 25, 2001, in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania to Christina "Christi" (née Zook) and Marc Lukasiak. She has a younger sister, Clara. The family resides in Mars, Pennsylvania. She is of Polish, Scottish, German, and Italian descent.

Chloe began dance classes at the Abby Lee Dance Company at age two. At first, she did "the basics" such as jazz and ballet. But as she got older she started to do more styles and has trained in everything except ballroom and latin. From the ages of five to thirteen, Lukasiak competed throughout the United States as part of the Abby Lee Dance Company, winning numerous titles at the regional, state, and national levels. Lukasiak competed on Dance Moms in many dance genres: lyrical, contemporary, musical theatre, ballet, jazz, hip-hop, acro, Spanish, and Bollywood.


2011-present: Dance Moms and dance career

In 2011, Lukasiak and her mother, alongside Abby Lee Dance Company owner Abby Lee Miller, other young dancers, and their mothers, were cast on Lifetime's Dance Moms. Together they made up Miller's Junior Elite Competition Team.

After the Los Angeles national competition in July 2014 (filmed for an episode aired October 7, 2014), Lukasiak's mother decided that the environment of the TV show along with her own negative relationship with Miller was detrimental to her daughter and they decided to leave ALDC. The finale episode of Season 4 was their last appearance on Dance Moms as part of the main cast partially because of Miller being unappreciative about the fact that Lukasiak was the highest scoring ALDC soloist at Nationals, beating teammates Kendall Vertes and Kamryn Beck and Miller making a nasty comment about Chloe's eye. After the end of Season 4, Lukasiak left ALDC for good and switched to Studio 19 Dance Complex. Lukasiak's competition team from Studio 19 went on to win nationals in July 2015.

In high demand now that she was free of the ALDC, Lukasiak was invited to be a demonstrator and assistant for Blake McGrath in the VIP Dance Events convention (Calgary, Oct. 2014). Lukasiak has also posted many professionally-filmed dance videos on her YouTube channel as a series called Team Chloe Dance Project. She won "Choice Dancer" at the 2015 Teen Choice Awards and the "Dancers Choice Award" for "Favorite Dancer 17 & Under" at the 2015 Industry Dance Awards. She was once again nominated for the "Choice Dancer" award at the 2016 & 2017 Teen Choice Awards. She was nominated for a Shorty Award in the category of 'Best in Dance' but lost to Misty Copeland. Lukasiak joined the Triple Threat Talent Tour as a guest performer and assistant for several dance conventions in 2015/2016. In 2016, Lukasiak collaborated with Playtex Sport and starred in their "Ready, Set, Play On!" campaign commercial as a dancer. That same year, Lukasiak partnered with Ownzones to launch her own dance web series called Chloe on Pointe.

On January 27, 2017, Lukasiak announced that she would return to guest-star on Dance Moms for the Season 7 finale and Season 7B. Lukasiak first joined Murrieta Dance Project, but then left to form The Irreplaceables with Nia Sioux, Kendall Vertes, Kalani Hilliker, and Camryn Bridges. Lukasiak signed with Lifetime in April 2017 to star in her own web series called "Chloe Does It". In 2017, Lukasiak filmed an anti-bullying dance video for Seventeen Magazine. In December 2017, Lukasiak began touring with Kalani Hilliker and Kendall Vertes on The Irreplaceables Tour.

In 2019, Lukasiak took part in the Tate McRae "Tear Myself Apart" Dance Contest, placing in the top 5 out of over 100 participants.

In 2023, Lukasiak announced that she had co-founded Elevé Dance Competition, alongside her mother, Christi Lukasiak, Diane Pent, and Brittany Pent. The competition is set to start during the 2024 season.

On November 1, 2023, Lifetime announced a Dance Moms reunion in 2024 featuring Lukasiak and a few other original cast members returning.

2011-present: Transition to acting and acting debut

Lukasiak also auditioned for the role of "Annie" in the 2012 Broadway musical Annie, but lost the part to Actresses Lilla Crawford and Sadie Sink. Lukasiak later auditioned in 2013 for the role of "Maddy" in the 2015 film Spare Parts, but lost the role to Actress Aubrey Miller. Lukasiak's debut acting role was as Gwen Murphy in the 2016 Lifetime TV movie Center Stage: On Pointe. In an interview released on June 15, 2016, Lukasiak said she was grateful to Dance Moms because it showed her how much she loves acting and that she has a passion for it. She was later cast as Savanah Stocker in A Cowgirl's Story alongside former Bridge to Terabithia star Bailee Madison. Lukasiak has since been cast as the lead role in the science-fiction/inspirational thriller called Loophole, and supporting roles in the family-friendly movies Camp Arrowhead, Next Level, and F.R.E.D.I. In 2016, Lukasiak played a character named Flynn Harrington for episodes in a TV series called Welcome To My World, however, the series never made it to air. Lukasiak appeared in a commercial for the TV show Superstore in 2016 as a store employee.
