I have been asked several times over the past week if I watched Abby’s Ultimate Dance Competition and what my thoughts were on the show. I tuned in late – due to a crazy dance night and extreme homework overload. I was curious to see the show and the dancers.
Whenever I watch these kinds of shows, I try to keep in mind that the show is scripted to a degree and that these Moms typically have their child’s best interest at heart. Their approach may be entirely different than mine, but to each their own. Also, these dancers would not be where they are without dedication, hard work, talent and supportive families.
So after several e-mails asking which studios some of these dancers attend, I thought I would give you a list along with a video or two.
