Chloe Elizabeth Lukasiak (born May 25, 2001) is the daughter of Marc and Christi Lukasiak and older sister of Clara Alexandra Lukasiak . She is a strong and a talented dancer, and was Maddie Ziegler's main competition at the Abby Lee Dance Company . She is in tenth grade
Abby has usually placed Chloe in the middle of the pyramid, but sometimes on the bottom, and occasionally on top.
At competitions, she usually places high and often wins, but not as much as Maddie. Chloe's genres are usually lyrical or contemporary, although in Season 1, many of her solos were musical theater. She believes her best dance ability is her turning.
She is often compared to Maddie Ziegler even though she and her mother feel the two shouldn't be compared. Also, because of this comparison, Chloe often second guesses herself.
Chloe is shown to be very sweet and modest. Like other girls on the show, she is reported to be a straight-A student, and has a reputation among them for being especially studious.
Chloe has been seen training elsewhere in the summer of 2014. In September, a group photo for Studio 19 Dance Complex included Chloe.
Relationship with Maddie
She is one of Maddie's friends. They are together when dancing in Abby Lee Dance Company and dancing outside.
In Dance Moms
- In Wildly Inappropriate, editing seems to show Chloe's reaction when losing to Maddie; in reality, they were in different age categories and both finished first, generating one of the show's first controversies.
- In Stealing the Show, Christi becomes angry with Melissa at the competition because Maddie has been given two solos, and has been better prepared. While Christi confronts Melissa in a hallway, Chloe simultaneously reaches out to embrace Maddie. Backstage, the two girls hug, and tell each other that they love one another.
- In Cathy Brings It On, she performs "Dream On A Star," which is one of her favorite solos, as well as one of Abby's. Prior to performing, she was rattled by Cathy using the same music for one of her own dancers, Taylor.
- In It All Ends Here during a difficult period, Chloe states that she is tired of dancing. At a lake, Abby gives her words of encouragement, telling her she is her first choice for things like duets with Maddie; and that she is absolutely capable of going on Broadway someday, or becoming a Rockette. At the national competition Chloe forgets her solo and freezes onstage. Her duet wins first, as does the group dance.
- She portrayed young Lux in the music video "It's Like Summer," filmed during the Season One finale, because the directors felt she looked the most like Lux.
- In No One Likes A Bully during rehearsals, Abby accuses Chloe of being cocky, making up her own choreography and not having a brain in her head. Chloe's tears make dark spots on her dancewear.
- In Abbygeddon, the girls auditioned for a Joffrey Ballet School Scholarship. In the end, Chloe is the only one who receives a full scholarship on the show. Maddie received a full scholarship for Joffrey's modern dance program. In reality, Maddie and Chloe received scholarships to Joffrey, but they were unable to attend due to Nationals. At competition Chloe won with her solo "Red Queen and beat Kendall with similar theme solo.
- In The Battle Begins Chloe was on the top of the pyramid and became the "star" of the group dance. She also had a solo and trio with Brooke and Paige. Abby has the other girls criticize Chloe's dancing, creating awkward moments for Chloe. Abby pressures Chloe on her responsibilities, saying the fate of the entire team rests on Chloe's shoulders. In distress, Chloe complains of pain and stops practicing, tended by Gianna and her mother.
- In Night of the Living Dancers, Melissa reports that Chloe has used a doctor's appointment as an opportunity to skip class and go to a movie.

- During the break between seasons, Abby sent a letter to entertainment reporter Lori Acken, complaining about Chloe's paid Meet and Greets; complaining that Chloe had wanted to be paid to appear on the cover of the ALDC Annual Dance Concert Program; complaining that Chloe continually came late to classes and left early; and complaining about Christi's constant negative remarks against Abby.
- In The Smoke Before the Fire, Abby opines that Chloe has regressed in her dancing due to being busy with other activities.
- In the first episode, The Beginning of the End, Abby tells Chloe that she has allowed Maddie to return to the top, as Chloe didn't attend practice over the break. Abby also complains that only two girls showed up to classes during the break, making it impossible for her guest choreographers to teach new group dances; and impossible for everyone to learn and rehearse at least two new solos apiece before the season starts, as they had the year before. When Ally is given the lead in "Angels and Demons," Holly believes that Abby is looking to punish Chloe for missing bootie camp; with Jill believing that Abby is teaching Chloe a lesson, against staying away from the studio for three months, and instead coming to classes.
- In But I'm a National Champion!, Chloe is given a contemporary solo. Christi considers it a punishment, as it will compete against Sophia Lucia. Chloe takes it as inspiration to prove that she can become as good; but later worries that she let her mother down.
- In Revenge of the Replacements, Abby plans on starting the acro group dance with Chloe performing a standing back tuck, since Christi had boasted of her capability in doing it. Chloe is not confident in her gymnastic abilities, and the girls only perform standing back handsprings. When her solo finishes second to Kaeli's, Abby tells her she was not even close to defeating the former replacement. Christi explains that Chloe arrives late for classes because she gets off school at 4:30.
- In Boys Are Cuties, Girls Have Cooties, Chloe drops her hat during the group dance and Christi storms out with her daughter, telling Abby to replace them.
- In Rotten to the Core, Chloe is suspended for what happened in the previous episode. She returns to hugs from her teammates in You've Been Unfriended, but remains suspended and is not placed on the pyramid for this and following episodes. Abby refuses to even speak her name.
- In All's Fair in Love and War, Abby decides to keep her suspended, saying she made up her own choreography in the previous group dance.
- Her suspension is finally removed in The Apple of Her Eye. Chloe also receives a duet with Paige, Abby stating that Chloe has slipped to Paige's ability level; the duet later wins first place.
- In She's a Maniac, Abby yells at her; Chloe cries and tells her mother she thought she was doing the correct choreography. Following her 1980's style solo, Chloe makes the "sign of the horns" which Christi had taught her; Abby finds this gesture inappropriate.
- In The Politics of Dancing, Abby has members of the team vote for whether Chloe or Maddie gave a better performance. Chloe receives three votes versus Maddie's seven.
- In Candy Apple Showdown, Chloe and Paige visit a casting agent. Abby gives Chloe a solo named "My Obsession," and asks what Chloe's obsession really is. Chloe replies that her obsession is dancing. Her solo finishes third, behind Maddie; and also behind Zack in a tiebreaker. In choreography never broadcast, Abby has Chloe shooting Maddie at the end of the group dance, and only a mangled, edited-version of the performance is shown on television.
- In Tell All, Part 2, Cathy says she would pick Chloe as a dancer from among Abby's dancers, and that Abby does not appreciate her.

- In Two Girls, One Solo, Chloe and Maddie are given nearly identical music, costumes and choreography. At awards, Chloe is given first place. Later in the dressing room, the competition director says that the scores were miscalculated, and that this would mean that Maddie would have been first. Chloe says she was a little upset, but was happy for Maddie.
- In Abby's "So Far This Season...", the solos from Two Girls, One Solo are discussed again, and a legible scoresheet shows Chloe with a score beyond the maximum limit in choreography. Abby says she is proud of both her dancers, and that both are capable of beating the other.
- In extras from Divas Las Vegas, Chloe cries, saying Abby told her that judges must have had something wrong with them to give her a victory over Maddie.
- In Do-Si-Do and Do-Si-Don't, Abby gives Chloe a duet with Asia with the need to prove herself before nationals. The odd pairing finishes second.
- In The Big, Not So, Easy, Chloe and Kendall are given identical choreography to practice before seeing who should compete at nationals. Before a decision is made, Christi and Leslie get into an altercation. When both are kicked out, Chloe leaves with her mother.
- In 'Twas the Fight Before Christmas, Chloe says what she would like for Christmas is to have her braces removed. Due to her studious reputation, Abby gives her an e-reader and books as gifts.
- In Guess Who's Coming to the Dance?, it is noted that Chloe is going to a new school.
- In Two Can Play This Game, Abby pits Chloe against Kendall to decide who she will view as her #2 dancer behind Maddie. Chloe's solo beats Kendall, as well as Lucas from the Candy Apple's.
- In Dance Moms Cares Special — actually filmed before the start of the new season — Abby says she has not heard from Chloe or Christi since nationals.
- In Chloe vs. Kendall: Round 2, Abby asks if Chloe or her mother were responsible for her dancing last in her competition against Kendall, when she was listed first in the program. Chloe denies that they were the ones who changed things, but says she had desired to watch the competition first, to see what it would take to beat them. This gives Abby an excuse to pit the two against each other again. At the competition, Chloe takes first place.
- In No One is Safe, Abby pressures Christi into homeschooling Chloe so she can get additional privates like Maddie. Chloe says she likes going to school and that it keeps her normal.
- In Clash of the Chloes, she is pitted against a "new" dancing for the ALDC, Chloe Nguyen. The newcomer finishes second, ahead of the "old Chloe's" fourth place.
- In Big Trouble in the Big Apple, there are auditions for new dancers. Chloe worries that she's replaceable to Abby and cries when saying she's scared. Abby has given Chloe a duet with Paige; but Abby also says she has a secret weapon, a second duet with Kalani and Maddie. Kelly and Christi accuse Melissa of being a liar, and that she has taught her daughter to be liar as well. Christi says that it is a hard lesson to learn when you are twelve, to discover your friends aren't really your friends. When Maddie says that she did not know they would be entered at the time she had said they would not perform their duet, Kelly likewise tells Chloe that she knows who her friends really are. Following more drama, Chloe and Paige's duet finishes second behind that of Kalani and Maddie.
- In Wingman Down, Maddie and Chloe are given a duet, called "Confessions." Abby says the idea is Chloe is confessing to Maddie, while Christi says it should be the other way. Later, Maddie talks to Chloe, but Chloe is not shown speaking back.
- In Blame It on the New Girl, she slowly dances with a resident of Maryen's nursing home and hugs Abby after the competition.
