A very controversial but nonetheless very successful RealityTelevision series on Creator/{{Lifetime}} that premiered in 2011 and is currently in its sixth season. The show is about the Abby Lee Dance Company (headed by Abby Lee Miller), the girls who are learning to dance at the company, the drama between their mothers (the titular "dance moms"), and all of the bumps along the way.

Its success inspired a short-lived Miami spin-off and [[Series/AbbysUltimateDanceCompetition a dance competition spin-off]]. It also launched a [[TransAtlanticEquivalent British version]] in 2014 on Lifetime UK called ''Dance Mums with Jennifer Ellison'' (Abby appeared on the first episode). On the flipside, the show has a strong BrokenBase for a variety of reasons, from certain NeverLiveItDown moments to the existence of the show as a whole.

This is the current ''main'' cast.

* {{Jerkass}}: Abby's [[JerkWithAHeartOfGold heart of gold]] has been diminishing over the show's runtime, although it really starting showing up in season 4 and has really started to bare its teeth in season 5. For example, someone drops by the ALDC's competition room to give Abby a fruit bouquet, which she carelessly and purposely drops on the ground, causing fruits to spill.
