JoJo Siwa: from 'Dance Moms' to her own holiday bash

You may know JoJo Siwa from ‘Dance Moms’, but for those of you who don't, here are some highlights from what's known in show business as JoJo's "sizzle reel."

JoJo started dance class as soon as she could walk and did her first solo at the age of 2.

JoJo quickly realized she had a love for dance and continued to take classes in tap, jazz, hip hop, ballet. She loved to travel and take dance classes but even more so loved being on stage.

JoJo auditioned for AUDC Abby’s Ultimate Dance Competition Season 2 and at the age of 8 was the youngest contestant for season 2.  She made it to the top 5 of that show and made quite an impression on the producers and the network.

One year later, those same people called and asked her to be on Lifetime’s number one show: “Dance Moms”…distributed in 114 countries.

JoJo loves her fans and loves that she can use her new found platform to make a difference.

JoJo is obsessed with social media.  She loves connecting with her fans and sharing the behind the scenes of her journey and a sneak peek into her life.  JoJo currently has over 1.5 million followers on Instagram and over 8 million views on YouTube. She recently launched JoJo’s Juice on her YouTube channel, where she answers fans questions every Wednesday.

JoJo realizes one of the negative factors of social media is the negativity and bullying.  So she recently started the SIWANATOR club.   It’s about positivity and no hate. When you pledge to be a SIWANATOR you become a part of a group of people who have your back. You are strong, you believe in yourself and you don’t have to fight back at the haters.  You can feel safe amongst your SIWANATORS and just walk away from the haters and bullies.

JoJo is looking forward to releasing her new single and music video in time for the Holidays, launching her own merchandise line and getting out as much as she can to connect with her fans!
