About this show:
Set in Pittsburgh’s renowned Abby Lee Dance Company, owned and operated by the notoriously reality-TV-show-worthy Miller, Dance Moms is one to watch if you’re a fan of buns, sequins and shouty ladies. The series follows children’s early steps on the road to stardom but it more closely follows the life of the dance mums who are there for every rehearsal, performance and bow, even if it means they’re watching from Miller’s Perspex dance jail. Expect high kicks and even higher drama as the girls dance ever closer to the National Dance titles in spite of their mums’ backstage breakdowns. We’d say “Jeez, calm down, ladies” but where’s the fun in that?
