The new season of Dance Moms will premiere Wednesday, Jan. 1, 2014, at 9pm ET/PT, with new episodes airing Tuesdays at 9pm ET/PT.
And as the series’ take-no-prisoners star Abby Lee Miller warned the ALDC moms and Dance Moms fans in the Season 3 reunion, she’s taking her show on the road for a nationwide casting tour in search of elite young dancers for her competition team for the new season.
Here’s the rest of the Season 4 announcement straight from Lifetime:
With the threat of new dancers coming into the company, the dance moms will stop at nothing to make sure their girls have a place to shine on stage, even if it means going up against Abby.
For the dancers who think they have what it takes and for the parents who can go toe-to-toe with Abby, the Dance Moms national scouting tour will make stops in the following cities:
- October 25 — Orlando, FL
- November 8 — Atlanta, GA
- November 22 — New York City
More information on the tour can be found at www.dancemomscasting.com.
Before the New Years Day premiere, Lifetime will kick off Season 4 with Dance Moms Special: Guess Who’s Coming to the Dance? at 8pm ET/PT, which will reunite Abby and the moms for updates on the ALDC dancers and what has happened since the cameras stopped rolling at the end of Season 3. The girls will also perform new dances.
