Maddie has come a long way since her days on Dance Moms, as she’s begun to pursue acting roles in addition to dance jobs.

Following small roles in The Book Of Henry (2017) and last year’s To All the Boys: P.S. I Still Love You, she took on a more demanding lead role in this year’s Music, co-written and directed by Sia.

She played the title character, who is autistic and non-verbal, while Kate Hudson co-starred as her older half-sister who takes over her care, while Leslie Odom Jr. plays a neighbor who develops a bond with Music.

And most recently she worked with an established auteur — Steven Spielberg — on his West Side Story adaptation.  

West Side Story is an adaptation of the iconic 1957 musical by Arthur Laurents, Leonard Bernstein and the late Stephen Sondheim, who passed away over the weekend at 91 years of age.

Maddie is joined by a cast that includes Ansel Elgort as Tony, Ariana DeBose as Anita and Rita Moreno, who played Anita in the 1964 adaptation of West Side Story, which won 10 Oscars including Best Picture.  

The story is set in 1950s New York City – loosely adapted from William Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet – with one girl named Maria caught between two gangs – the Jets and the Sharks.

Her brother Bernardo (David Alvarez) is the leader of the Latinx gang the Sharks, though she has fallen for Tony (Ansel Elgort), a member of the white gang, the Jets.

Frequent Spielberg collaborator Tony Kushner (Munich, Lincoln) wrote the screenplay, adapted from the iconic stage musical.
