Dance Moms Season 1 Solos: Ranked by Izzy
If the title is misleading, I apologize. But I am not going to do this as a free for all. I am going to rank this based on each girl individually and THEIR growth, not their growth relative to the growth of their teammates. Also if they only had one solo through the whole season, I won’t be mentioning them.
Chloe season 1
What even was this choreography? It was SO slow and meandering.
I actually found a full version of this if anyone wants to see it. It’s a cute routine, but she’s done these turns much better in her other routines from season 1.
She did a pretty good job but the editing was crap so you can’t see much lol.
She did such a good job honestly. I am sad she forgot and didn’t place because I feel like this solo was a force to be reckoned with.
Her first solo out and one of her best from the season. She just looked like Broadway out there!
Dream on a Star
But of course then there’s Dream on a Star. A fan favorite, one of Chloe’s favorites, and one of my favorites. Just a beautiful routine, with good choreography that Chloe nailed. <3
Maddie season 1
Not a lot to say n this one cuz the editing cut it down to like 30 seconds. It was pretty from what we could see though!
This one kind of reminds me of Manhattan.
BUT I liked Manhattan better haha. I think it was the song.
LOVE, LOVE, LOVE Maddie’s tap!
I love this routine but I do feel like it was a little rushed.
This routine has always been one of my favorites. And I feel like it was pretty advanced for an 8 year old.
THIS is the best though. Just all smiles and the song makes me so happy.
Brooke solos season 1
I just don’t think that the upbeat music fits Brooke’s style of dance. Maybe that’s just me though.
Pretty but simple. I feel like this routine is forgotten a lot.
THIS is what I think of when I think of Brooke. Honestly, this routine and the costume just screamed Brooke. She did so good and she was injured so good job Brooke! Hah.
Nia solos season 1
They Call Me Laquifa
Do I even need to explain? Not only was this a racist dance, but the choreography was awful.
Abby’s first dance about Bollywood, which she knows nothing about. To Nia’s credit though, she performed well.
Ultimately this one was my favorite. It was fun and I liked the song.
Paige solos season 1
Sad she forgot but you can watch her Boys, Boys, Boys solo. It’s a pretty good dance!
I dunno how many people know this one cuz it was cut, but they aired it on one of the specials. It was a really need dance. Too bad the camera angles and shots of literally everyone in the audience got in the way.
