Nia Sioux Sets The Record Straight About The Reunion

When the Dance Moms 10-year reunion premieres tonight, viewers will get the chance to hear from the former child stars themselves. However, not all of Abby Lee Miller’s former dancers attended. Maddie and Mackenzie Ziegler, as well as Nia Sioux, chose not to come.

Now, Nia is speaking up about the situation.

“Personally, I wasn’t going to say anything ’cause I just didn’t want to start drama — not that this would even start drama, it really shouldn’t. And also, I didn’t want to make it because I don’t want it to seem like I’m searching for attention because I really don’t care,” Nia shared with her followers. “I really don’t need the attention.”

The former child star added that many people have asked her why she chose to sit out. But really, the answer isn’t very dramatic at all.

“Hate to break it to you guys, but the reason is quite simple. I just really didn’t want to do it,” Nia continued. “Yeah, it’s pretty plain and simple. I just didn’t want to do it. Some people think it was because I had sorority stuff. Nope, I didn’t. Some people think it’s because I’m in school. I am in school, but it wouldn’t have been an issue. I just didn’t want to do it, and that’s a good enough answer and that’s a good enough reason.”

Fans React To The Former Dance Moms Star’s TikTok

In the video, Nia Sioux also added that she and the rest of the girls from Dance Moms were on great terms. She might possibly be open to future reunions, but she didn’t feel that it was something she wanted to do at this point in time.

The former child star received an outpouring of support and compassion about her decision. Many Dance Moms fans hated the way Abby Lee Miller treated Nia and the other girls on the set and understood Nia’s feelings.

TikTok users wrote:

  • She said ‘I’m protecting my peace’ and we love it.”
  • “‘No’ is a full sentence! Love this 🩵”
  • “‘I didn’t want to do it’ is such a valid answer!!! No need to explain as long as you’re at peace. Love it ❤️”
  • Respect your decision no matter what, you’re such a queen!”

Nia’s mother Holly and several other former Dance Moms stars wrote encouraging words in the comments as well. They vocalized how proud they were of Nia for standing her ground and protecting her mental health.
