“Dance Moms” casting announcement: Lifetime, producers seeking studio for spin-off

Dance Moms casting call: Abby Lee Miller

Bryan Stinson, executive producer of Dance Moms, announced today via Twitter that he, his co-producers at Collins Avenue and Lifetime are seeking a brand new dance studio to add to the Dance Moms franchise.

According to the announcement, the chosen studio — which will get its own series — must be accomplished in the national competition world and have a dynamic, well-respected dance instructor.

Interested parties can nominate a studio by e-mailing Lindsay Liles at LindsayLilesCasting@gmail.com with the following information in the body of the e-mail:

• Studio name
• City and state
• Name of dance instructor
• Why the studio merits its own show

Dance Moms fans might also be interested — and maybe a little nervous — to know that Collins Avenue also has a casting announcement posted on its web site seeking additional dancer/mom combos to join the Abby Lee Dance Studio. You can find that info here.

So what do you think, Dance Moms Nation? Are Christi, Kelly, Holly, Jill and Melissa history? Or are they just getting some company in the studio and the Mom Loft? And are you excited about a new addition to the Dance Moms family, do you want Dance Moms Miami back or is the original the only one that can claim your heart — and Tuesday nights? Let us know what you think in the comments section below.

  1. THE ONLY DANCE MOMS I WOULD EVER WATCH IS THE ORIGINAL. THE DM SPIN OFF, NOT EVEN SURE IF IT WAS DANCE MOMS MIAMI, AS I ONLY WATCHED IT ONCE OR TWICE. IT WAS HORRIBLE — DIDN’T COMPARE OR EVEN COME CLOSE TO THE ORIG. STOP TRYING TO DUPLICATE A HIT SHOW WITH A SIMILAR TYPE SERIES. ALL THAT IS ACCOMPLISHED IS BOMBARDING THE VIEWERS WITH ANOTHER WANNA BE REALITY DANCE SHOW THAT SUCKs TO THE POINT OF CHOKING US WITH ONE BAD REALITY SHOW AFTER ANOTHER, TURNING US OFF MORE AND MORE UNTIL WE CAN’T BEAR TO WATCH ANY REALITY SHOW< NO LESS THE ORIG. PLEASE JUST KEEP THE ONLY ONE THAT MIGHT WORK IF KEPT UNIQUE.

  2. I absolutely live for this show every Tuesday night. I would NOT watch a spin off of the show, I wouldn’t even give it a second thought, it was tried before with the one in Miami and it didn’t work out.
    Please you have a hit show here ! Don’t risk your ratings, keep our dance moms the way they are.

  3. I am a fan of THIS group. If they change the cast, bring in a bunch of replacements, I won’t waste my time. I won’t watch a spinoff. I never bothered watching “Abbes Competition” show. I think the original Dance Moms had a good thing going, until season 3. It appears they are “testing” the viewers by shifting more toward it being all about Abbe. I am not interested.

    • I agree with you I love the original dance moms Mackenzie is my favorite she is a little doll please keep the original moms it will not be the same if they are gone

  4. I was a dance instructor for many years and enjoyed teaching my students and loved all 250 of them equally. Every time I have seen this show I enjoy the dancers, so talented. I became disabled 3 years ago and miss teaching every day, when I see how Abby treats these young ladies it makes me sad that these mothers allow her to be so cruel. I say allow because they keep going back! I sleep well at night knowing i never had to verbally abuse my students to get results. Love to all my past dancers Mrs.Jo misses u promise me u will never let the fame of reality TV draw u into such a terrible situation……winning is nothing without PRIDE in yourself. Never allow someone to make u believe u would be nobody without them…..pave your own way with pride and dance like nobody is watching. Do it for you!! Thats what makes you #1 !!!!!!

  5. I tried to watch this show. the girls dancing is great but I can not stand how Abby treats the girls/mom. How much do the mom get paid to let Abby treat there girls this bad. You could not pay my any amount of money to let any person treat my child like this. also how she talks to the mom in front of the kids. ” oh you have a name and it starts with a b” now I would have had to lower myself down a step are two and He77 would have broke lose in that room that day. I am surprised DCF has not got involved with how she talks to the girls. All I can say is Abby is as nasty as she is fat.
