Nia Sioux Frazier (born June 20, 2001) is the middle child of Evan and Holly Hatcher-Frazier and is the sister of Evan, Jr. and William Frazier.

On Dance Moms, Nia was often placed on the bottom of the pyramid. Her mother, Holly, often got into arguments with Abby for not giving Nia enough attention and believed that the choreography Nia is given wasn't at a "competitive standard," as well as accusing Abby of deliberately typecasting Nia in different ethnic roles (primarily seen in the first two seasons).

Nia and her mom were original members of the ALDC junior elite competition team when it was created. Both of them remained permanent members all the way up until the Season 7 episode Ashlee's Big Decision Part 1, when they officially left the Abby Lee Dance Company with the other elite dancers (minus Brynn) and formed The Irreplaceables.

As the longest-tenured dancer to ever feature on Dance Moms, Nia was best known on the show for her signature death drops, her stage presence, her determination to win, displaying vast improvements in her technique year after year, portraying an endless variety of different characters onstage, and her strengths in doing partner work, particularly with Mackenzie. She was also known off the stage for her bright smile, her bubbly personality, her friendship with all the girls, her quiet determination, her resilience, and her eagerness to learn new things.
