July 17th, 2019

Everleigh Rose Soutas burst out onto the social media scene as a toddler fashionista whose mom Savannah LaBrant guided her baby steps toward stardom. Everleigh has millions of followers on Instagram and has appeared in Vogue Australia. She was even featured in a campaign for Kardashian Kids.

The blonde-haired beauty began modeling at just eight months old and began dancing and acting at age two. The pint-sized California native models the clothes from her mom’s online kid’s clothing shop called The Wild Threads that she co-owns with a friend.

She is a surprisingly famous six-year-old.

In fact, Everleigh is such a hot commodity that she taught Dance Mom’s Maddie Ziegler her first place solo routine that netted more than 12 million YouTube views, Dance Magazine reported. Her stepdad Cole LeBrant was a successful Viner and her mom Savannah a Muscial.ly star, reports Heavy, so it’s no wonder that Everleigh knows how to command a stage.

Savannah was a teen mom and Everleigh appeared in many of her Muscial.ly videos when she was young, shared the website Nicki Swift. The whole family also has several YouTube channels.

“We are young parents and I wouldn’t change that for the world!”

So when Savannah enrolled Everleigh in dance classes, the little girl took to the stage like a fish to water, just like her mom did years ago. Everleigh competed at the K&R National Dance Finals in Las Vegas this summer, donning a sparkling sequined blue costume with a white ruffle rippling across her backside, a matching hair accessory affixed beside her bun.

Everleigh dances with the Orange County Performing Arts Academy and for this year’s solo, her choreographer Amy Gold selected an upbeat, hip-hop/techno remix of Aretha Franklin’s hit song Respect, which she blends with some other tunes. Everleigh is an amazingly talented dancer and executes moves with incredible precision.

She even works the crowd with adorable facial expressions, capturing the judges’ attention.

Everleigh performs a walkover, a leg extension and many other moves that require supreme balance and flexibility. She can even be caught mouthing the words to the song at a few points. For this jazz solo, Everleigh placed fifth overall.

When Everleigh was five, she earned first place at a dance competition with that year’s solo. She performed a sassy routine to Lil Mama’s song Lip Gloss.

She also performed a duet when she was four with her buddy Diesel using a hit song from Grease along with other rocker chick songs. Everleigh played Sandy of course and was absolutely adorable.

In 2017, Cole, Savannah and Everleigh recorded a family dance video and posted it on their YouTube channel that garnered almost 35 million views. Cole felt pretty confident going into their living room dance class.

“I’m a pretty good dancer, so I think I’ve gotten this taken care of.”

When Everleigh’s dance routine required Cole and Savannah to perform a cartwheel, Savannah nailed it. But then began to feel the side effects of doing a cartwheel.

“I’m seeing a bunch of stars right now.”
