Keara Sweeney (born on February 11, 2001), has been dancing since she was 2 years old, but began dancing at the Abby Lee Dance Company in 2011. Keara auditioned for the Abby Lee Dance Company's junior elite competition team that year, but did not make it and instead joined the ALDC's usual competition team. She dances in the styles jazz, musical theater, lyrical, contemporary, acrobatic, tap, and ballet. Keara also takes voice and acting lessons, and is very talented in all 3. Keara has a little sister named Mackenzie who also dances at the ALDC. The Sweeney family is very close to all of the ALDC families, specifically the Zieglers, and the Linharts.

At the start of the 2015-2016 competition season, Keara left the ALDC and began training and competing with Dance Mechanics, another studio in Pittsburgh run by former ALDC teachers/choreographers Rachael Thoma and Jennine Wedge. Keara transferred studios yet again at the start of the 2016-2017 season, this time switching to Evolve Dance Complex.
