Editorial Reviews

There's crying, tantrums, sassing back, and lots of pouting--and that's just the moms. Dance Moms, the Lifetime reality hit, is compulsively watchable because it features dance, as well as ambitious mothers living through their kids, but not in as creepy a way as, say, pageant moms. Most of all, Dance Moms has a great star and antihero in dance teacher Abby Lee Miller, whose Pittsburgh dance studio is apparently where aspiring young dancers go to learn how to make it on Broadway. Miller is a drill sergeant who may or may not have a heart of gold, but the moms of the young dancers believe in her strict teaching methods, even if they often roll their eyes when Miller's not around. The dance world is fascinating, and the world of young kids devoting themselves to an art so single-mindedly is also fascinating. Miller likes to say (several times an episode) that her feedback may seem harsh, but she would rather her students hear it from her, "in my class, in front of eight people, instead of 800 at an open audition." If she sometimes seems extra harsh with her tween girls, there's no denying that the dancers have learned not only captivating and competition-winning moves, but also poise and comportment. The moms are a whole other arc of interesting watching; many of them were Miller's students when they were their daughters' age. Dance Moms mostly stays on the side of sympathizing with the young dancers, letting the moms and Miller take the lumps for occasional off-putting behavior. But it sure looks like the moms and Miller can take pretty much anything anyone dishes out. Reality fans will eat it up. --A.T. Hurley

Product Description

Product Description

Set in Pittsburgh’s renowned Abby Lee Dance Company, owned and operated by notoriously demanding and passionate instructor Abby Lee Miller, Lifetime’s explosive new docu-series DANCE MOMS follows children’s early steps on the road to stardom and the doting mothers who are there for every rehearsal, performance and bow…all under the discerning eye of Miller. Presenting a powerful cast of characters sure to raise eyebrows, the series immerses itself in the highs and lows surrounding competition season to deliver an intriguing and dramatic look at the frantic pursuit of the ultimate National Dance title. Centered on the devoted Miller, who runs her school with an iron tap shoe as she instructs her young, talented students while dealing with over-the-top mothers who go to great lengths to help their children’s dreams come true, DANCE MOMS poses tough questions about what really goes on behind-the-scenes in the fast-growing and controversial sport of competitive dance.

I enjoy this show - not always the moms however. Amazing to watch the girls grow in their dancing skills. I'm on my second season of following it.

4.0 out of 5 stars If you like drama, and LOVE dance.. March 5, 2013
Format:Amazon Instant Video
I'm NOT a dance mom, but I feel like it when I'm watching my God-daughter, so I identify with these women. We want the best for our children, especially critical opportunities to showcase their talent, since the field is so competitive.

This dance teacher takes it to the extreme, but the results seem worth the drama. Yet, if you can't stand the drama, hit "mute" or "fast forward" because the choreography and talent are worth the watch.

It's not just reality TV, it's genuinely lovely dance.

4.0 out of 5 stars Outrageous entertainment! June 17, 2012
This show is a guilty pleasure. This reality television show chronicles the competition dancers at Abby Lee Dance Company in Pittsburgh along with their stage, uh I mean dance moms. The dancers are genuinely talented, but the behavior of the studio owner/teacher, Abby, and the dance moms grows increasingly more outrageous. Their behaivor may be wild, but it sure is fun to watch!

Lifetime's "Dance Moms" fills a specialty niche in reality programming that you either love or you hate. Season One was a surprise hit for the network, Season Two has further exploded in the ratings, and the network even launched a totally unnecessary spinoff in Miami. (I mean really, how many stage mothers does one need to see highlighted on national television?) That's just it, I'm not a huge fan of putting children into stressful situations on TV and watching their parents straddle the line into exploiting them for profit. I know it's a fact of the world, but it doesn't always qualify as entertainment for me to see people behaving poorly. At least "Dance Moms" features talented young performers, a strong instructor in Abby Lee Miller, and a no-nonsense approach to some of the sillier mom-related shenanigans. There is an unpleasant underbelly to this world of competitive dance. "Dance Moms," in large part, capitalizes on an unsavory aspect of child rearing. But for the right reasons, it also showcases talent and drive. For those distinctions, it's not nearly the purposeful train wreck of the popular "Toddlers and Tiaras" which is even more distressing and over-the-top (even though it might be strangely alluring).

As a guilty pleasure, as I said, "Dance Moms" will either rock your boat or come across as patently distasteful. In a given episode, you can expect Abby Lee Miller to push the children (as young as six). Depending on your viewpoint and experience, you'll think she is motivating them or berating them. If they want to compete at a national level, this is a fact of competitive sport. For me, it's hard to be too squeamish about Miller's techniques so most of my disdain is with the parents.

1.0 out of 5 stars Ugh! December 16, 2013

Format:Amazon Instant Video
Ugh! Horrible rip-off of other reality TV shows. There are no likable individuals in this show...even the kids are annoying. Which is not their fault considering how selfish and petty their mothers are.

5.0 out of 5 stars I must be sick April 17, 2013
Format:Amazon Instant Video
I love watching the girls dance. But I shudder to think of the physiological damage the coach Abby does to these girls. I get your coach is supposed to be tough, and not your friend. But this lady is a manipulative b&$))( that shouldn't be around small children.

I keep watching it each week hoping the spunky moms will finally have enough. It's my train wreck I can't turn away from, but poor Chloe, this is her life.
