Does anybody watch the show Dance Moms? My dd and I are watching a marathon of it on Lifetime today. She loves the show. I like watching the girls dance but I hate the way Abby yells at the kids, and the moms. She can be so mean. I don't see that a teacher needs to yell at kids like that, to get them to perform. Just wondering what others think of the show.

I don't know. She is a really good dancer, and has won a lot of awards, but the other girls could probably win too if given half a chance.

Most of them get along, though they don't usually get along as well with Melissa(Maddi and Mackenzie's mom). I think they feel like Melissa is always trying to get on Abby's good side, and she seems a little two faced. She will talk about the other moms to Abby, but then complain about Abby to the other moms.

2 moms liked this

I do not like the show, because I think the moms are all dipshits. But, teachers will yell and berate in a group like that (competetive), because these kids are wanting to make a career of dance, and it prepares them for auditions in the real world.  Many good dancers end up washing out in the world of professional dance, because they can not handle the way they are treated.  There is no hand holding, no special treatment, and you are often told that you are looking a bit chubby.  

I imagine Abby thinks she is doing these girls a favor, you know?
