Lilia Buckingham is an American competitive dancer who is currently affiliated with MNR Dance Factory. Lilia became interested in the performing arts very early in her life. She garnered fame under unique circumstances and it is quite safe to say that she did not go looking for it. Through her mother, she became acquainted with several performers from the reality show Dance Moms, and they, in turn, posted pictures with Lilia on their social media accounts. Soon enough, she became a topic of conversation on the internet, with thousands wondering if she was a new contestant on the show. It did not matter that the girl, her family and even the performers themselves denied her involvement in the show. People continued to speculate until Lilia stopped posting on Instagram. During this period, Lilia was even stalked by another girl of her age. Since then, owing to her new-found online fame, she has appeared on shows such as Good Morning America and Modern Family.
