We don’t blame you if you forget Maddie Ziegler is only 12 years old. (Here, a friendly reminder.)

Well, actually, not for long – the Dance Moms star-turned-Sia muse is celebrating her 13th birthday on Sept. 30. To mark the milestone, she collaborated with i-D in a short film about what it means to come of age.

Ziegler puts both her dancing and acting chops on display in the film, which was shot in her Pennsylvania hometown and directed by Bunny Kinney. The video, narrated by Chloë Sevigny, is “an ode to being a 13 year girl, entering your teens and being yourself no matter what,” according to Ravi Amaratunga, i-D‘s global group director of video.

Happy birthday, Maddie! (Watch the impressive video above.)
