Vertes has been dancing since she was only 18 months old. She began taking dance classes at the age of 2 and started performing on stage the year after. Vertes’s interest in singing also developed in her formative years, she has been a part of the dancing-singing group called "The Glitter Girls" along with Maria May and Liza Retter. Vertes is most recognized for appearing on the reality show “Dance Moms”. Initially joining on probation for Abby Lee Dance Company, ALDC in short. Vertes developed into one of the lead dancers of the show.

Vertes has simultaneously been successful in her musical endeavors. Her debut single “Wear ‘Em Out” surpassed Taylor Swift’s “Bad Blood” on the iTunes music video chart on the day of its release. She adores contemporary and jazz dance styles and among the different dance techniques, rise and fall are her favorites.

She also released another song "Where Would I Be Without You", which is inspired by the music of Calvin Harris. She told her fans that her “ultimate music dream” is to work in collaboration with Ariana Grande, her favorite singer.

Vertes may be one of the best-known stars of "Dance Moms", even though she only appeared on the show in Season 2. Vertes had spoken out negatively about her time with Abby Lee, going on to even reveal her experience in a YouTube video explaining that “Abby no longer wanted to work with the girls because they were old and washed up and slugs and fat", but Vertes found success in the media industry, nonetheless.

Vertes currently, other than being very popular on social media, includes in her released music a Christmas album called "K-mas," which appeared in the movies "Rapunzel: A Princess Frozen in Time" and "Anastasia: Once Upon a Time". Vertes has become a brand ambassador for Bang Energy drink.

Vertes’s success has grown exceptionally even after her successful stint with “Dance Moms”. According to TV Over Mind, in 2021, she landed a new show called "The Kendall K and Friends Show". The talk show premiered on CBS in January 2022 and features the "Dance Moms" alumni interviewing celebrities alongside some other dance favorites such as Nia Sioux and Abby Lee Miller.

Vertes is very popular on Instagram, amassing 9.7 million followers, but it doesn’t stop there, she is also popular on TikTok, with over 7.3 million followers, while her popularity has even extended to YouTube and Twitter, where she has 1.2 million subscribers and 526k followers respectively. This ever-growing popularity has helped her collaborate with several brands over the years.

She's promoted everything from Bloom Nutrition to Dunkin'. It seems Vertes is currently concentrating on her social media career as she is fairly active on Instagram and TikTok, where she posts the most, while she isn’t active on YouTube or on Twitter, in spite of having over 1.8 million followers combined on those platforms.

It is clearly difficult to avoid controversy especially when you’re part of a popular TV show like “Dance Moms” and Vertes has had her share of conflicts. Abby had once called Vertes a “hot mess”, and she even wanted to leave the show.

Vertes had a breakdown on the sets of the show when, due to her best friend Maddie's busy schedule, their first duet together was canceled and Abby made JoJo Siwa have a solo performance instead. During the sixth season, Kendall's mother Jill Vertes got into a feud with Ashlee Allen, the mother of newcomer Brynn Rumfallo, when Jill showed her discontent over Brynn's inclusion on the team. Vertes also got involved in the dispute which disappointed many fans.

There were tensions between Kendall and Abby, who also was her music manager, over her song releases. After spending a whole summer on her songs, Kendall had to wait for Abby's approval to release her singles. Vertes disliked the fact that another “Dance Moms” star, Nia Sioux, who is not managed by Abby, released several songs without going through the troubles she faced. When asked about her dance coach Abby's legal troubles regarding bankruptcy fraud, Vertes even called it "karma".

Net Worth

Source - Instagram

Vertes’s net worth is courted to be an estimated $1. 5 million. Most of Vertes’s earnings come from social media presence as a content creator, TV shows, music, dance, brand collaborations, modeling, and merchandise.

Vertes, as mentioned before, is hugely popular for her appearances on the TV show Dance Moms. She is considered to have earned amongst the top ten highest on the show. Some sources have revealed that the top stars of the show, including Vertes, could have earned up to $300k a season, but that, of course, has not been confirmed.

Apart from this, she also has her own TV show on CBS, as mentioned before called “The Kendall K and Friends Show”, which began airing this year. For this too, we cannot confirm how much she could earn. We can safely assume that she could make upwards of the 6-figure mark every season.

Vertes has also been a successful music artist with several of her music videos viewed several million times. She also has her music available on the most recognizable streaming brands, which are Apple Music, Amazon Music, and Spotify. It is currently unknown how much she could earn from record sales as well as stream, as each company follows a different set of metrics to determine how much an artist should be paid in accordance to following, engagement, and overall streams. We can safely assume that Vertes makes upwards of the 5-figure mark each year from her music.

When it comes to dancing, there are several ways Vertes could earn money. One being collaborative performances with other dance stars, and/or professional choreographers, reality TV shows as mentioned earlier, social media content, and live performances. We know that Vertes has participated in the first 3.

We have already discussed how much she could earn on reality TV shows, but the figure of earning may vary presently as several years have passed, hence we currently do not know how much she could earn from these ventures. It is safe to say that since dance is an incredibly important factor in Vertes's career, she could categorically make sure that she would be involved in professional dancing as much as she could, eventually making her a hefty sum each year.

Source - Instagram

When it comes to brand collaborations, Vertes has associated herself with several top brands over her influencing career. Her ever-growing popularity has helped her monetarily collaborate with these brands over the years. She's promoted everything from Bloom Nutrition to Dunkin' and is the current brand ambassador for Halara. We, unfortunately, do not have the figures to justify how much she could earn from these sponsored collaborations, but we can assume that the figures are of a hefty sum.

As a model, it is unclear how much Vertes could earn from her features in print and online magazines, even though she has been the face of several photo shoots and outlets. She has worked as a model with several other brands as well, but we currently do not know how much she could earn as a model, although we can safely assume that it would be a hefty sum.

Vertes also sells merchandise on her website as well as other third-party websites, like RedBubble, which are catered to her fans. A prominent venture of Vertes’s was called the Kendall Vertes x Velvet Caviar Collection, which was a limited collection that sold out on introduction. We can speculate that Vertes earns towards the 5-figure mark each year in sales. We currently do not know how much she precisely earns as there is no information available regarding that.

Social Media

Vertes’s dominance on social media is very evident with over 7.3 million TikTok followers, while on Instagram she has over 9.7 million followers, on YouTube, she has 1.2 million subscribers, and on Twitter, she has 526k followers.

    Every week at the Abby Lee Dance Company in Pittsburgh, a group of young dancers led by Abby Lee Miller train for a dance competition. The group usually consists of 5-8 dancers, depending on the episodes of the show. Every week they learn a new group choreography and also, for some, a trio, duo or solo. Solo during competitions is the privilege of little girls and the object of many conflicts between their mothers. Each episode begins with a "pyramid", a ranking created by choreographer Abby to represent the best and worst performances from the previous week. The episode usually ends with an awards ceremony for the winners of the contest. Maddie Ziegler is considered Abby's favorite dancer. She performs solo almost every week, is the winner of most competitions and is almost always at the top of the pyramid. This creates tension with each episode between her mother, Melissa, and the other little girls' mothers. The tension between these mothers and Abby Lee Miller is also at the center of the show.

    Around the show

    Abby Lee Dance Company

    Abby Lee Miller started her own dance company at the age of 14. Abby Lee Dance Company is based in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, where Abby Lee Miller was born and has always lived. The dance troupe is open to children ages 2 to 18 and offers many dance classes ranging from tap to hip hop including jazz. In addition to Abby, these lessons are taught by six well-known teachers. Abby Lee Miller's goal is that after being fully trained in her studio, her students can start a career as a professional dancer.


    Abby Lee Miller is an acclaimed choreographer, so choreographic sequences play a big role in the performance. Abby's creations are unique in that each one tells a story. Considered one of Abby's finest choreographies, "Last Lyrics" features dancers imitating a tragically ending car ride. Young girls also often play famous characters on stage. Maddie has visibly stepped into the shoes of Helen Keller, the blind, deaf-mute writer. Abby even told Near, who previously performed a tribute to Maya Angelou, the choreography in memory of her deceased dog, a Bichon named Broadway Baby.

    Criticism and controversy

    After another run-in with Abby, Kelly Hyland beats the choreographer and ends up on trial. As a result, she and her daughters will leave the show. The incident can be seen in an episode that aired on February 11, 2014. In turn, Kelly Hyland also sued Abby Lee on behalf of her daughter Paige, accusing her of bullying. Abby indeed, among other bullying, advised Kelly to seek treatment for Paige's mental problems. Many viewers have criticized Abby Lee's attitude towards her students, saying that she is solely responsible for the nervous breakdowns of Kelly Hyland or other mothers.

    The costumes of little girls in dance competitions are sometimes controversial. The most brutal came after the airing of the ninth episode of the second season, in which young dancers performed a choreography called "Topless Dancers". In this issue, they were dressed in outfits that created the illusion of nudity. Due to much criticism, this episode was subsequently censored by the channel.
