Aside from her television appearances, she has also participated in various competitions and events around the world. As she continues her endeavors, it is expected that her wealth will also continue to increase.
Early Life and Dance Beginnings
At a very young age, Mia was introduced to dance, and at the age of three she was already learning how to develop the craft. She loved dancing and continued to pursue the craft over the years, and when she was eight she started competing in various regional level dance competitions, and won many of them.
This led her to compete at the Hall of Fame National Championships in Florida. She participated in the solo competition in the eight and under category, and performed the highest scoring solo, and thus her first National Championship. According to several sources, one of the reasons she won nationals that year was due to her shift towards training at the dance school “Stars”. She then won the young Dancer of the Year Title at the American Dance Award Nationals held in Boston. She continued her streak of winning at national events, increasing her fame to a global scale. Many noted that one reason for her success is due to her natural inclination towards performing.
Further Training and Dance Moms
Diaz expanded her skills through training in various dances, as opposed to just mastering one. She trained in ballet, musical theatre, tap dancing, and lyrical dances, as well as in jazz and contemporary dances. Her fame led her to be cast in the television show “Dance Moms Miami” which is a spin-off of the show “Dance Moms”. The series aired in 2012, and followed the co-owners of Stars Dance Studio in Miami – Angel Armas and Victor Smalley – who have handled the studio since 2007.
The show featured the challenges of running a dance studio, usually from demands of managers and relatives, and especially the competitive moms of the dancers in the studio. Aside from their training and all the drama that happens within the studio, the film crew also followed students as they competed in various dance competitions. Other dancers who featured in the show included Sammy Small, Hannah Epstein, and Kimberly “Kimmy” Kopke. The show aired for a total of eight episodes, and had a feature called The List which is used to show dancers who performed the best along with those who need to improve. However, the show did not really catch on, and only lasted for a season.
Though “Dance Moms Miami” failed to gain the same amount of success as the original, the show still gave Mia enough exposure to gain further opportunities. She started taking on other dance projects, and has been featured in various dance themed publications. She’s been featured in “Dance Spirit”, the magazine published by the Macfadden Communications Group since 1927, when it was named as “The American Dancer”.
