Dance Moms focuses cameras on children's early steps on the road to stardom - with their doting mothers in tow, who show up for each and every rehearsal and performance.
Dance instructor Abby Lee Miller runs the school and instructs the young and talented dancers, as the spotlight focuses on the highs and lows surrounding competitive dance and the pursuit of national titles.
As hard as it is, the students also must deal with their passionate mothers who will go to any length to help their child's dream come true.
WE LOVE CLOE AND MADY AND PAGE AND NIA AND BROOK AND MAKENZIE... WE LOVE ALL RH GIRLS
I don't consider a cheating husband, a compliant dipsy wife entertainment in the farthest stretch of imagination. lIFETIME NEEDS TO PAY THE CONSUMER. Cable says that they aren't responsible for programing; however, they sure are right there to take the money charged for a bunch of ho-hah, non-sense programing.
Why take off something that IS WATCHED, and then substitute True Tory, 8 is enough, 19 and Counting, The Kardashians, and on and on and on.
I also think that although Abby knows her stuff, she is very trying to listen to all the time. Abby needs some kind of counseling about how to treat those that she wants to light a fire under. Constant comparisons to other dancers and put downs are not the building blocks of confidence and success. It also is downgrading an otherwise very addictive, but entertaining program. I enjoy all the dancers, but NOT ALL the Moms. The mothers with MENTAL problems shouldn't be allowed in there, PERIOD. I have heard that the producers encourage this type of back-biting amongst the mothers. Where do producers and directors get their "feed-back" from? I wish they would try to listen to their viewers instead of helping to trash one of the few entertaining shows on television.
Abby is preparing these children for tough competition. In their adult future, if they always win, they will be fine. If they face even one disappointment, Abby has prepared them for that, too. Competing is tough. Abby is getting the girls ready for the big, sometimes not-so-nice world. She cannot do that by burping them!
Stars are made. Abby knows how to do that!
