 If you watched the show you would know that the moms and everyone didnt not want the kids to the routine… That routine is from last season. I think you not liking one clip is not enough to shut down a show… watch a few episodes before you start passing too much judgement

I don’t watch this show but OMG.  I’m with you.  I think my jaw literally dropped when I watched that.  That is beyond inappropriate for that age group.  What are these parents and choreographers thinking?! 

I was in dance for 15 years, (ages 3 to 18), and I loved it.  It shaped who I am to a very large extent.  But it was NEVER like that.

I have more issues with how the kids are actually treated than the dances themselves.

Seen ads for it, they make me not want to watch it.  But I really don’t want to get drawn in the whole kids dance/pagentry debate.  I think these shows just make their money by showcasing people who take things to far.

My 4 year old does Ballet, and is begging me to start Tap as well.  She loves dancing, and I will support her for as long as she loves dance.

But there is no way I am going to run around screaming “How many times has my daughter beat your daughter this year?”

Omg, I love that show, lol. My Fiance even started watching it because it’s just so ridiculous (the moms). I was in dance, and I wish I had a teacher that cared enough to make sure I could have been the best that I could be.

yeahhhhhhhhhhhh no.  If I saw my kid practicing a routine like that, we’d be finding another dance studio, and I don’t give a s(#* how famous this lady is.  Its hard enough to be a girl these days without having sexualization forced on you at a much younger age than is healthy – this is just shoving it right down their throats with a mini-pole dance routine.

I watch that show sometimes, the moms seem so petty to me, I dont get why they keep bringing their daughters to Abby if they dont trust her jugdment.

I watch the show and love it. The moms do get on my nerves almost constantly but I can’t stop watching. I danced from the ages of 2.5- 24 and like the PP it shaped who I am today. It helped me learn discipline – that allowed me to work full time & get 2 different BA degrees on my own.

I sometimes drive past the studio where that show is filmed, depending on where I’m going. It’s a hit around here because it’s local, and I love it because it’s so…Pittsburgh.
