Discover why Ava was kicked off Dance Moms and how she turned her struggles as a tall person into success with her role in Netflix’s Tall Girl.
Ava Michelle – Child Star
Ava Michelle Cota is an American actress and dancer who became known around 2014. At a young age, her mother, Jeanette, made her attend JC’s Broadway Dance Academy, which was owned by Jeanette herself until it closed in 2023. Ava Michelle then became part of the reality television series Dance Moms, which debuted in 2011 to train children in the field of dance. She started appearing in the show in 2013 and also became a regular for four years, which consisted of around 18 episodes. The stars from Dance Moms had a tour in the United States in 2018 and Ava Michelle was also part of the event. As she’s always had an interest and a career in dancing, she also joined the dance competition show So You Think You Can Dance: The Next Generation, but she was removed from the show only after an episode due to her height of more than six feet tall. Ava Michelle then put her attention to acting and made appearances in some short films such as This Is Me, where she portrayed Olivia Newton-John, and Mamma Mia! as the character named Anna. In 2019, she became more popular as she landed the lead role of Jodi Kreyman in the romantic comedy Tall Girl on Netflix. She was also cast for its sequel, Tall Girl 2, which was released in February 2023.
