From Dance Moms to Nickelodeon star!

JoJo Siwa is set to appear in a 30-minute special, JoJo Siwa: My World, this August, PEOPLE can exclusively reveal.

The special, which is currently in production, follows the 13-year-old’s dance journey leading up to her biggest moment yet — performing at the Mall of America.

On June 3, Siwa will take the stage in Bloomington, Minnesota, to tape her special and perform her hit, “Boomerang,” along with her newest songs, “Hold the Drama” and “Kid in a Candy Store,” for her fans.

Since discovering her love for dance as a toddler, Siwa has gone on to hit some major milestones in her budding career, including becoming the youngest contestant to appear on Abby’s Ultimate Dance Competition at just 8 years old, and also starring in Dance Moms.

Now, Siwa has garnered an incredible social media following with over 5.5 million Instagram followers, 10 million followers on Musical.ly and almost 271,000 Twitter followers.

JoJo Siwa: My World premieres Saturday, August 12 at 8 p.m. ET on Nickelodeon.
