Dance Masters of America is publically disassociating itself from Abby Lee Miller, the infamous dance teacher from the Lifetime series Dance Moms, a reality show known for its trophy-obsessed teachers and scheming stage mothers.
The Lifetime television network has picked up six hour-long episodes of a Dance Moms spin-off titled Dance Moms: Miami that will go behind the scenes at the Miami-based Stars Dance Studio, according to the Hollywood Reporter.
Lifetime’s Dance Moms will begin its new season January 10 at 9pm, and fans will be relieved to know no one has matured.
The producers behind the Lifetime reality TV show Dance Moms have been banned from one of the biggest children’s dance competitions in the country after event organizers complained about the way the event was portrayed on the show last year, according to TMZ.
The buzz was immediate for Dance Moms, the reality-TV show on Lifetime featuring Pennsylvania studio owner Abby Lee Miller—but it wasn’t the good kind. On July 15, Dance Studio Life publisher Rhee Gold posted this on the magazine’s Facebook page:
Lifetime has renewed its reality TV series Dance Moms for a second season, ordering 13 new episodes featuring tough-guy dance instructor Abby Lee Miller, her students, and their cat-fighting mothers, the network announced this week.
