Mackenzie Ziegler has also appeared on several other television shows including Nicky, Ricky, Dicky & Dawn, The View and So You Think You Can Dance.

She also released music and several videos of her own, including Shine, Christmas All Year Long, I Gotta Dance, Day & Night, Monsters (aka Haters), Breathe and Team Work.
Mackenzie is also a certified social media star with more than 9.5 million followers on Instagram, 2 Million subscribers on Youtube, over 1 Million followers on Twitter and 10 million fans on Musical.ly.

Her net worth is a result of her hard work and dedication to her career over the years. She got her start by being a cast member of Lifetime’s Dance Moms with her sister and her mother. She was also featured in a dance commercial for General Electric.
This, combined with her various acting gigs, television appearances and music career made her net worth what it is today. Her debut album, Mack Z, peaked at number 7 on iTunes’ albums sales chart across all genres and also at number 1 on the iTunes pop chart. The success continued as the music video for the lead single for the album, “Girl Party” also topped charts. The video was viewed more than 50 million times. Even though she wasn’t able to recreate the same level of success with her subsequent videos, she’s still doing well in that department.
Besides modelling for Polo Ralph Lauren, she also appeared in a Glamour Magazine campaign video.

She also worked with ‘Justice’ to come up with a dance-inspired activewear clothing line.
Together with her sister, they released The Maddie & Mackenzie Collection, a limited edition fashion line. As she grows older, the projects she takes on continues to increase. So it’s safe to say, if she maintains her mature work ethic and so her net worth will only continue to climb from here on out.
