Maddie Ziegler is a great performer, take one look at her here, and hold thumbs that she stays in this fine shape to be in movies during the next decade. Something along the lines of a swift-moving lightning-quick super-heroine gliding effortlessly through the skies, you know, as superhero movies go.

Okay, so I found out. And, it is tragic. And I understand. Okay.
But let's face it. The star here is Maddie Ziegler.
