The Net Worth of Eva Igo
How rich is Eva Igo? As of early-2019, sources inform us of a net worth that at 16 is already over $100,000, earned through a successful career as a professional dancer. She’s been dancing since she was five years old, and competing since she was seven. As she continues her career, it is expected that her wealth will also continue to increase.
Early Life, Career Beginnings, and Dance Moms
Very little is known about Eva’s family, except that she grew up with two siblings, and discovered a passion for dancing at a very young age. At the age of five she was already doing solo dances, and two years later, she was already winning numerous regional and national titles. While her fame was only confined to the dance industry, it increased significantly when she appeared in an episode of the hit reality television show “Dance Moms”.
The series airs on Lifetime and follows the early careers as well as the training of children who dance, potentially in show business, trained under the tutelage of Abby Lee Miller. The show often showcases the interaction of the instructor with the dancers, and there is drama often fueled by the mothers of the children. The show features the Abby Lee Dance Company heavily, though it features several rival studios from around the country as well.
Making a Mark
During her time with “Dance Moms”, Igo and her team took the top spot against the ALDC’s “Don’t Ask Just Tell”, and she placed first against another popular dancer Maddie Ziegler, receiving the highest score in that episode entitled “Camouflaged Maneuvers”. The show has received its share of criticism and controversy, especially with Abby Lee’s choices when it comes to clothing. One of the mothers was also arrested after a backstage dispute with Miller during a dance competition, which caused her children to be removed from the show; a few other children left due to dismissive treatment.
In 2015, Abby Lee Miller was indicted on charges of concealing her income, and also charged with bankruptcy fraud, concealment of bankruptcy assets, and false bankruptcy declarations. She pleaded guilty to charges the following year, and entered a plea deal with the IRS, leading her to be imprisoned for a year.
After her appearance in “Dance Moms”, Igo appeared at the Hall of Fame Dance Challenge held in St. Paul, Minnesota in 2017. She recorded a perfect score for her solo entitled “River”, the first solo dancer to achieve that feat in over 12 years.
World of Dance
Eva competed during the first season of the reality dance competition “World of Dance” which began airing in 2017, in front of judges including Jennifer Lopez, Ne-Yo and Derek Hough. During the qualifiers, each dancer performs a two minute routine in front of the judges and a live audience, are then scored in five categories, and must receive an average score of 80 or higher to progress. After the qualifiers, contestants will enter the Duels in which two acts of the same division compete for a spot for the next round. Acts with the top qualifying scores will choose their opponents, and then perform before receiving feedback from the judges.
The final average is then shown and the one with the highest score moves to the next round. Contestants then reach the divisional final which two of the remaining acts for each division square off with only one act reaching the World Final. The final three acts then compete at the World Final to gain the one million dollar prize with judges becoming the mentor for each finalist. The three finalists performed twice and she got second place, getting beaten by Les Twins by just .1 in the score tally.
For her personal life, not much is known about Igo’s romantic relationships; it is likely that she doesn’t have any yet as she is still young and focused on developing her dance career. In 2018, she received the Industry Dance Award 2018 for most fierce dancer under 18, nominated alongside Charlize Glass, JT Church, and Kaycee Rice. She is often supported by her mother when she undertakes dancing projects, as she needs to have a guardian with her due to her age.
Fans of “World of Dance” are still divided by the result of the world final especially with the very close scores of the top two competitors. Similar to numerous dancers, Eva is highly active online through accounts on various major social media websites; her Instagram account showcases a lot of personal pictures and photos of her while dancing. She also has a Facebook page with similar content, plus videos of her competing at “World of Dance” can be seen on her account, and through video sharing websites such as YouTube, which contains all of her televised performances from the show.
