Tween Star Mackenzie Ziegler Partners with Justice to Launch New Song, Video and Clothing Line

New music video, "Teamwork," celebrates freedom of expression, encourages positivity and combats bullying among tween girls and beyond

NEW ALBANY, OH--(Marketwired - Jul 17, 2017) - Justice, the #1 destination for all things tween girls, is teaming up with 13-year-old singer, dancer and former Dance Moms star Mackenzie Ziegler to launch a new music video and song called "Teamwork" along with a new dance-inspired clothing line just in time for back to school.

The Mackenzie Ziegler for Justice Active collection launches in-stores across the U.S. today as well as at Shopjustice.com and features activewear inspired by Mackenzie's love for music and dance. The line features leotards, cropped hoodies, tank tops, leggings, dance socks, compression shorts, chokers, headwraps and duffle bags featuring the latest trends like splatter paint, sequins, patches, graffiti and more. 

"Getting to create a new clothing line with Justice is a dream come true," said Ziegler. "The line represents my passion for music, dance and clothing. I hope girls love the cute and playful looks as much as I do!"

In tandem with the new activewear line, Ziegler and Justice created a music video for a new song called "Teamwork," which launches today on YouTube and focuses on empowering and supporting young girls. The video celebrates self-expression and teamwork, showcasing Mackenzie and the Justice Dance Troupe as they work together on a beautiful mural created by well-known muralist Amanda Lynn. A passionate supporter of the Live Justice mission, Ziegler aims to inspire young girls to welcome and lift up one another as they head back to school.

"Together, girl power is unstoppable," said Ziegler. "When we stick together, we lift up girls everywhere to feel stronger and better about themselves, and I hope my new song and video encourages girls to join me in this effort."

This partnership continues to further the brand message of Live Justice, a set of values that the brand upholds everyday in their mission to empower girls -- Live Active, Live Connected, Live Together, Live Smart, Live Positive and Live Creative.

"Mackenzie embodies everything we believe in at Justice -- she is a bright young woman who is living an authentic and active life, is confident in herself and treats others with respect and warmth," said Lece Lohr, President for Justice Brand. "She is a great Live Justice role model, and we are beyond excited to be teaming up with her to further this important message to young girls everywhere."
