This is about to be Maddie Ziegler like you’ve never seen her before!

It was just announced that the 16-year-old dance sensation would be heading to the big screen as part of Steven Spielberg’s remake of famed musical “West Side Story.” Following the unrequited love story between Tony and Maria, this musical is known for its huge dance numbers between rival gangs the Jets and the Sharks.

Using her larger-than-life dancing abilities, Maddie will help the Jets come to life during the musical numbers such as Cool,” “America,” “Gee, Officer Krupke,” “Jet Song” and “I Feel Pretty.” We can’t wait to see her totally kill it on the big screen!

Maddie is a role model thought and through! She recently opened up about the importance of volunteer work.
