When I first heard about this show, I had no intention of watching it. I thought it was gonna be Toddlers in Tiaras but with dance instead. And the first few episodes of the first season, seemed to be just that. But as the show progressed, and the drama built up, I was hooked. Abby is hilarious, although I feel her teaching methods are a bit extreme. She can be a bully. But the moms are funny. The kids are adorable. I feel so bad for Kendal. Her mom is a hot mess. Christy was my least favorite in the beginning of the first season, but is now my favorite. I love Holly. This show is funny. This particular episode made me absolutely despise Jill. Rules are rules. And she keeps saying she wants what's best for her daughter, but she seems to be digging her daughter's grave with Abby. Abby even says it in the next episode. The whole thing with the costume was ridiculous. Everyone else followed the rules, even though they had jobs or were busy doing other things. Christy's costume for Chloe was awesome. Melissa's costume for Maddie was great too. Why does Jill get to be different? It's funny, Abby is extremely tough on some of the girls, but always acknowledges their talent. This show is crazy. I am so hooked.

I haven't been completely into the past few episodes. But this finale was great. I am so glad that the moms teamed up and finally put Abby in her place. It is so obvious that Abby's pet is Maddie. She never congratulated Chloe for getting accepted into Joffrey's summer program. Chloe also won first place in the competition. Who's at the top of the pyramid now? But Maddie messes up and Abby is brought to tears.

When the girls auditioned for Joffrey's, The comments that the talent scouts were making to Abby's dancers might be an indication that Abby may not have prepared them as well as she believes. She always says that she is preparing them for the real world and is turning them into employable dancers, but her prized dancer didn't even get in. In fact the scouts didn't like Maddie. They said she was better suited for Broadway. This came as a huge disappointment to Maddie. Abby just shrugged it off. They was also unimpressed with Mackenzie's booty shaking. They adored Chloe.

When Maddie ran off stage at the competition, it seemed like it was more for attention than she forgot her dance. Maddie doesn't forget dances. She threw a tantrum when Chloe got offered the scholarship and she didn't. I was so glad that Melissa actually reprimanded her. I was actually stunned. In past episodes Maddie has cried for no reason to get the attention back on her. When Maddie ran off the stage, Abby of course gave her a hug and told her she wasn't mad. Any other girl would have been made to feel like garbage and gone to the bottom of the pyramid. Then they would have stayed there until they won first place in the next competition or Abby felt the she should put one of Melissa's girls there in an effort to "challenge" them.

This show is absolutely great! There is a whole bunch of drama but what do you expect from a large group of women? There are going to be some drama when you get a group of women together. I think that Abby needs to not play favorites so much because she has a lot of talent on her team. Do they make mistakes? Yes, yes they do and they work hard to fix those mistakes.
I absolutely love Chloe! I like Maddie but I feel that if things aren't going her way or if she doesn't feel like she's being the star of the show then she doesn't give 100% or will do something to get the attention back on her.
Love this show even with the drama:)

Abby is very mean but is after all a very god teacher. The moms are very mean to Melissa because their jealous of Maddie. Melissa is not perfect she lies and is very very private she like with the engagement ring when the moms asked why she was not wearing it she went down stairs and told Maddie and Mackenzie that they were not going to the competion and told greg to call his eterny and that they were starting again .Christie is very mean but a very good dance mom but after a very concerned mother .Chloe is a very talented dancer. Kelly Christies best friend is concerned for her two children brooke and paige I think why Abby is so mean to Kelly is because she is mad at Kelly for leaving dance. Holly is a very concerned mother for Nia because Nia is a very good dancer but abby only puts real attention for Maddie. After all I think this is a very good show and I hope Kelly comes back. I think that the dance moms get so upset because Abby is always putting the most attention on Maddie
