In this day and age, it seems it would be irresponsible of me and any other viewers out there to not speak up. I'm dying to know what happens next. Cathy relies on Anthony's choreography to keep her on top. Jess says she loves the solo. I watched this show with my jaw hanging open. Mackenzie and Nia come get their pictures. She tells JoJo and Kendall to come up and hands them their head shots.
Together, they reveal their true feelings about their fights with , their relationships with their teammates, and the performances that defined Kendall as a dancer and launched her career as a pop star. Melissa considers home-schooling her daughters. Two of the voters were 7 years old. Chloe is scolded for her hand gesture at the end of her solo. Kendall's video is set to premiere, but the pressure of her debut as a pop star coupled with a solo, pushes her to the limit.
Abbey Lee Miller is the owner and director of the Abby Lee Dance Company. She congratulates the team on a clean sweep at the last competition. Cathy holds a big open audition to supplement her Candy Apples. Maddie finds herself on the bottom of the pyramid for the very first time and is determined to dance her way back on top. Maddy, you are cute, but you are not the best dancer in that group.
To add to the chaos, Abby assigns two duets: and vs. So, yes, my daughters watch Dance Moms. Brooke is dismissed from the team for the week. Paige is given a leading but unchallenging role, Brooke's music video is revealed, while Kelly doubts it is worth returning for another season. Jill doubts the Spice Girls number is enough to win. Meanwhile, Maddie slips and falls during her performance. Making me, again, a rockstar.
Jess thinks Melissa is caving rather than standing up to Abby. It's also been called child abuse for the way it exploits girls already getting everything from tween sexualization to vicious insults against which their own mothers may or may not come to their defense pushed on them. But when Kalani's back injury starts to act up and is not there to help, and the other moms have to step in and do what's right for her. The group gets cast, but then continue to compete for the lead, as only one girl will be the star. When Nia falls ill, Kendall is once again left without a partner.
Abby works with JoJo on her number and says to strut and be fancy. They attempt to act as important coaches in matters they are clearly less knowledgeable about, and constantly refer to their daughters' achievements in ways that group themselves in. At the competition, Cathy and Anthony criticize Paige from the audience. The above scenario happens far too often and it is edited this way deliberately. Elliana won second place, Lilliana won first place in the junior competition, while Brynn won third place and Kalani won first. You could choose competitive, non competitive and with ballet I always had chances to move up grades with demonstrative exams.
This show is despicable, and to recommend it on any level is to promote some of the worst competitive values still held today, as well as add just a little more damage to its helpless cast of girls. Although I enjoy the dance aspect, the drama involved with a little girl's dancing blows my mind. She had someone named Zach on the team, who she thought would give her team the edge. Abby bases her approval around the place her team takes in a competition and blows up when they lose to someone she wanted to beat. While the mothers continued to bicker, Abby revealed to Lilliana that her father would be singing the vocals for the song she would be dancing to. Forced to sit on the sidelines, injured Mackenzie must watch her coveted spot on the team be taken over by Asia.
As of for me I like shows with a dark story line that pulls you in. Holly says they can only go up. Jill asks who knows the Spice Girls and JoJo rattles them off. Along the way, Mackenzie and Melissa will give us the inside scoop on the triumphs and challenges in their journey 154 32 August 18, 2015 and the mothers discuss what went wrong at and some of the most shocking moments in Los Angeles; the mothers are divided on hot button issues; Abby drops a bombshell. Abby's dancers have been on a losing streak and this is their last chance to prove they can win. Are the producers stupid or are they just trying to produce some episodes as cheaply as possible? Liza chases her down the hall angry. Abby enjoys uncharacteristically warm and playful moments with Paige, Mackenzie and Kendall.
She tells them Maddie is rehearsing Saturday Night Live. Why would any mom allow her child to be treated this way? Cathy readies her team to take on the Abby Lee Dance Company but discovers there's a rotten apple amongst the bunch. It doesn't have that drama that pulls you in and then leaves you waiting all week for the next episode. Melissa is a suck up, the queen suck up. Though their is drama with the mothers and Abby who fight because of the children messing up on a dance or something the drama in the show isn't anything dark and scary.
