"I am so excited to join the Disney family and create a new show that is driven by my passion for dance and music,” says Mackenzie Ziegler. “I grew up loving all things Disney, so the opportunity to tell an inspiring story through dance and the greatest Disney music of all time is a dream come true. The show will be everything magical we love about Disney, with a modern dance twist that you have to come and see live. I can’t wait!"
At just 15 years old, Mackenzie Ziegler has become one of the most influential rising stars of Generation Z. She has made a splash in the entertainment industry garnering a massive social media presence of over 30 million followers across several platforms, and her music videos have collectively received over 200 million views. In August 2019, she was nominated for a Teen Choice Award in the category of “Choice Fashion/Beauty Web Star,” and the previous year she won a Teen Choice Award for “Choice Muser.”
As a singer, songwriter and recording artist, Mackenzie released her latest single “HOT” in July 2019. The single was her first release with Arista Records and showcased her growth as a rising artist. The new single came shortly after the launch of PRETTYMUCH’S Summer North American FOMO Tour, where she opened for the boy band throughout shows across the country.
In November 2018, Mackenzie released her album Phases, which featured the singles “Nothing on Us” and “Wonderful,” written by Grammy®-nominated songwriters Sia and Jesse Shatkin. Prior to Phases, she released the single “Monsters (aka Haters)” and followed this success with her singles: “Teamwork,” “Breathe” and “What If.”
Mackenzie can currently be seen starring in the YouTube series Total Eclipse for the digital network Brat, on which she also serves as Executive Producer, and in the upcoming animated film Ice Princess Lily for DIRECTV. Last fall, Mackenzie competed on ABC’s Dancing with the Stars: Juniors, and will next be seen in the sci-fi film Let Us In.
The show is created and directed by Amy Tinkham, who started her career as a professional dancer before moving into choreography for artists including Madonna and The Dixie Chicks. Most recently Tinkham was the creative director for Aerosmith’s Las Vegas residency show “Deuces Are Wild” and James Taylor’s 2017/2018 national tour. Guy Phillips is partnering with Right Angle Entertainment to produce Disney Dance Upon a Dream, and first worked together with Tinkham as producer of the “Dancing with the Stars” live tour.
