What Happened To Cathy And Vivi-Anne From Dance Moms?

Fans of the Lifetime reality series Dance Moms are familiar with the show's alums, especially some of the original dancers from the earlier seasons, as many of them went on to find fame of their own.

JoJo Siwa built an empire and brand for herself and is arguably one of the most successful former Dance Moms stars. Maddie Ziegler shot to fame after starring in various Sia music videos, while her sister Mackenzie has a large following on TikTok. The other original cast members, including Chloe Lukasiak, Nia Sioux, Kendall Vertes, Kalani Hilliker, and Brooke and Paige Hyland, also have a strong following on social media or remain involved in the entertainment industry in some form.

One of the series' stars who tends to be forgotten, though, is Vivi-Anne Stein, along with her mother Cathy. While the mother-daughter duo were only a part of the Abby Lee Dance Company for a brief time, they were prominent in the show for their "rivalry" with Abby Lee Miller and the dance team after they left ALDC to go back to the Candy Apple's Dance Center.

Read on to see what Vivi-Anne and Cathy Stein are up to today.

Vivi-Anne is all grown up now, and she's a cheerleader

Cathy Nesbitt-Stein is the owner of the dance company Candy Apple's Dance Center in Canton, Ohio. The studio served as a competitor to Abby Lee Dance Company during the early seasons of the show, with Cathy herself portrayed as Abby Lee Miller's nemesis. Her daughter Vivi-Anne, whom she adopted from birth in 2004, was the subject of a lot of Abby's bullying.

Unlike her famous peers, Vivi-Anne does not have public social media or a large following, but her mother does, and from the pictures Cathy posts of her not-so-little-anymore daughter, she seems to be doing good post-Dance Moms. Escaping Abby's wrath likely contributed to that.

Based off Cathy's Instagram, it seems Vivi may have shifted her attention from dance to cheerleading, as the now-teenager is a cheerleader on her high school's team. She also still dances for Candy Apple's and recently starred in their production of The Nutcracker as Clara (per Life & Style). Cathy is still a dance instructor at her studio, according to her Instagram bio.

Both Cathy and Vivi-Anne appear to live a relatively normal and happy life, which is probably a breath of fresh air after the drama of Dance Moms.
