For anyone who enjoys a fast-paced show that features unfiltered drama, children in precious dance outfits, and nail-biting suspense, Dance Moms will not disappoint. The show first aired in 2011 and was immediately a hit, returning for both a second and third season. Filmed in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania at the Abby Lee Dance Company, the show follows the early careers of children who hope to make it big in the dance and show business. While I is fascinating to watch these talented children grow and prosper, the real entertainment comes from the mothers and dance instructor Abby Lee Miller. Put lightly, Abby Lee Miller could be compared to an overzealous military sergeant. When you combine her strict, terse instruction style that forces the dancers to push themselves to the limit with the caring, light style of parenting that most of the moms have, you create a lethal mixture that is guaranteed to keep viewers coming back from more. Of course, it's not just Abby Lee Miller's instruction style and the parent's reaction to it that make the show enjoyable; the dancers themselves often face a series of ups and downs from both their rigorous dance goals and from the normal obstacles that come with growing up and being a kid. The dancers face the pressure of competitions, not letting their parents down, and pleasing dance instructor Abby Lee Miller; the dancers love what they do, but it's not always easy for them. For dance enthusiasts or even those who just love watching adorable kids twist, twirl, and strut their stuff, Dance Moms is a show that will make the hour fly by.
