“Dance Moms: Miami” coming soon says Lifetime

Watch your Pilates-toned backs, Bravo Housewives! Looks like Lifetime has found a lady-centric reality franchise of its own in the Dance Moms.

With the popularity of the original Pittsburgh-based Dance Moms reality spectacle (now airing its second season Tuesday nights at 9) at a fevered pitch, Lifetime has announced it will air six hour-long episodes of Dance Moms: Miami, set at the sultry south Florida city’s Stars Dance Studio. The school’s owners, renowned contemporary dance teacher Victor Smalley — an instructor on  Season 6 of So You Think You Can Dance — and choreographer Angel Armas train a diverse group of talented male and female dancers intent on becoming stars in the competitive dance and entertainment world.

“Dance Moms quickly became a stand-out hit for Lifetime last year that we knew would be perfect to build out and franchise into other series,” said Nancy Dubuc, President and General Manager of Lifetime Networks. “Dance Moms: Miami captures the same energy, passion and conflict between an equally intriguing cast of instructors, amazing dancers and moms who are 100% dedicated to become the best at what they do.”

No word on a premiere date or whether the stars of Stars will cross paths with Abby Lee Miller (pictured above) and her Abby Lee Dance Studio hoofers and dance moms on the competitive dance circuit. But we really, really hope they do.

  1. Oh my god! What about Abby and the other Dance Moms?!! They HAVE to keep the original Dance Moms! They have to!!!!



    • No it is just another dance show they are not taking the real dance moms away just making something like it but keeping the other one two!!!! Hope i helped

  3. Lifetime, please do not stop airing or making regular Dance Moms. I am so excited to see Mia Diaz on Dance Moms: Miami, but I still love the original cast of dance moms. If I were you, I’d keep filming both! Double times the viewers!

  4. I Really Hope there is still gonna be a regular dance moms because every time they do the show in a different place it ends up not being as good. So as long as there is still a regular dance moms I’m still happy. Thank you lifetime for this phononemon show!
