** Season 6.5 was this for both the dancers and the moms in the junior division as a bigger rift formed between Abby and the moms, to the point where they take the girls to Erin Babbs. To say Abby wasn't happy is a huge understatement. It took them 8 months and some space, but the junior moms and the dancers returned to the ALDC in Season 7.

** As of March 2017, Abby herself has left, to be replaced in the now last four episodes of Season 7 by Cheryl Burke of ''Dancing With The Stars'' fame. [[WoundedGazelleGambit Abby has blamed a certain producer]] (whom she nicknamed ''[[LouisCypher Satan]]'') for her SanitySlippage, but it's more a case of BlatantLies.

As the show has progressed, it has sort of devolved in quality and composure. Abby's treatment of the girls, while initially quite abrasive, [[{{Flanderization}} got worse each season]], leading to problems among the girls that have led to some of them leaving the company. Abby herself has become prone to [[HeroicRROD breakdowns seemingly caused by an extreme burnout]], and later seasons of the show became muddled with [[RealLifeWritesThePlot Abby's real-life legal troubles]], which have grown so immense that they may end up instigating the cancellation of the series as a whole.

It's also worth noting that [[https://www.youtube.com/user/officialpaigehyland1 Paige]], [[https://www.youtube.com/user/OfficialMackZ/videos Mackenzie]], [[https://www.youtube.com/user/33troijka Chloe]], and [[https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCp_oIcHA4BDlqePTkinkuoQ her little sister Clara]] all have Youtube accounts.

A very controversial but nonetheless very successful RealityTelevision series on Creator/{{Lifetime}} that premiered in 2011. As of now, the show is currently in its sixth season.

The show is about the Abby Lee Dance Company (headed by Abby Lee Miller) and the elite team of girls who are learning to dance at the company [[RevolvingDoorBand (which is known for changing quite frequently)]], but is most known for the drama caused by the mothers (the titular "dance moms") among themselves and sometimes with Abby for her at-times-questionable teaching techniques.

As the show has progressed, Abby has become prone to [[HeroicRROD breakdowns seemingly caused by an extreme burnout]], and [[RealLifeWritesThePlot her legal troubles aren't really helping the matter, either]]. However, the show has managed to stay popular, and its popularity has helped its starring girls achieve success in mainstream areas such as clothing, music, and acting.

The show's 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.
