I saw one episode of this show and I was HOOKED! And weirdly, I can't explain why I like it.
Yes, Abby yells a lot and most of the mom behave poorly. Yes, all the pressure is put on one 8 year old girl while the rest dance aimlessly in circle but I'll be dammed if it doesn't make addictive television! Maybe it's because despite all the yelling and screaming, it's really obvious all of these people are about their children's craft (even if it's for selfish reason (Melissa)). I'm not really sure...either way! I will continue to watch and lie to my friends and tell them I'm not overly familiar with the show.

This program is so antagonistic, it makes me anxious and agitated. It bothers me that people can be this petty and cruel not only to adults but also to children. Abby Lee may produce good dancers but how many of them end up on drugs or other destructive behavior because they were unable to be kids.

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.

This show will not change the world. You will not gain anything from it except entertainment. But that is what the show is supposed to do. This is reality T.V. at its most dramatic. The moms are constantly arguing with each other and Abby. Some of them are so backstabbing you know that they are playing it up for entertainment value. In short it is fun to watch the drama.

Yet, there is another element to the show that is more redeeming, and that is the girls. They really are very good dancers, and fun to watch.

The only thing I don't care for in the show is that Abby sometimes insults the kids because she is fighting with their mothers calling them "sneaks" and insinuating that they are stupid.

All in all a good way to waste an hour.

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.

If you like this style of reality tv-then it's a 5 star but you really have to wonder what makes shows like this addicting.

This exemplifies the worst of American culture. Adults behaving wildly inappropriately and being rewarded, glorified for their horrible behavior. The most shameful aspect is their mental abuse of the children showcased in the series. This is most irresponsible television program.

We gave up cable last year when I got laid off, and embraced the brave new world of streaming content. Since this show is not available on Hulu or Netflix, hello Amazon streaming. I don't buy tons of content, but I was mesmerized by an excerpt from this show that I found online, and had to see more.

Have to say that Abby Lee Miller must believe that all publicity is good publicity. She has a core of sensible, tough-love coaching somewhere below all the wildly inappropriate behavior, but appears to be completely insane on this show. Mom and dance studio rival Cathy also acts out for the camera, with disregard for other humans and the laws of nature. Other moms are not nearly so nutty (Abby and Cathy set the benchmark very high). All of the ladies show some concern and affection for their daughters and pupils, although that's sometimes obscured by their crazy sniping.

The little girls are sweet and dedicated, and it's endearing to see them dance their hearts out in front of their moms and the Lifetime production crew. Here and on shows like Toddlers and Tiaras, the audiences are slim and unabashedly partisan at regional showcases, and people are apparently screaming in the hallways of hotels all over this land. I hope these little ladies find fuller and more serene audiences someday, if they become performers.

Exploitation is the nature of shows like Dance Moms, but the cameras do linger over the girls routines, which is either kind or cynical (can't decide). The appeal of being part of this group must be complicated. I can't imagine paying $16,000 a year for dance, or willingly exposing my daughters to so much explosive drama, but can see that being part of a group, no matter how dysfunctional, has its perks.
