IF YOU THOUGHT PAGEANT MOMS WERE COMPETITIVE, THEN YOU HAVEN'T SEEN DANCE MOMS!

LIFETIME TO PREMIERE EXPLOSIVE NEW DOCU-SERIES DANCE MOMS ON WEDNESDAY, JULY 13

Program Takes Fascinating Look at Pressure-Filled World of Competitive Dance and Over-the-Top Interplay between Demanding Dance Instructor Abby Lee Miller, Her Students and Their Equally Extreme Mothers

LOS ANGELES (June 28, 2011) - On Wednesday, July 13, Lifetime Television will raise the curtain on the seemingly innocent, yet extremely intense, political and colorful world of competitive dance among young girls and boys when it premieres the all-new docu-series, Dance Moms, at 10:00 PM ET/PT.

Set in Pittsburgh's renowned Abby Lee Dance Company, owned and operated by notoriously demanding and passionate instructor Abby Lee Miller, Dance Moms follows children's early steps on the road to stardom and their doting mothers who are there for every rehearsal, performance and bow... all under the discerning eye of Miller. Presenting a powerful cast of characters sure to raise eyebrows, the series immerses itself in the highs and lows surrounding competition season to deliver an intriguing and dramatic look at the cast's frantic pursuit of the ultimate National Dance title. Centered on the devoted Miller, who runs her school with an iron tap shoe as she instructs her young, talented students while also dealing with over-the-top mothers who go to great lengths to help their children's dreams come true, Dance Moms will pose the tough questions many ask about what really goes on behind-the-scenes in the fast-growing and controversial sport of competitive dance.

Is Miller's in-your-face approach good for her students; or is it too much? At what point does she cross the line and who has the guts to stand up to her if she does? Are these Dance Moms living vicariously by pushing their kids too far? How happy are the students in this unusually competitive sport? What happens when they and their moms become competitive with each other? And, ultimately, who has what it takes?

Constantly on edge from Miller's strict discipline and at times harsh 'my way or the highway' style of teaching, her students and their mothers are pushed to the limit emotionally, physically, socially and, in some cases, financially as they tirelessly rehearse every day for weekly dance competitions throughout the U.S. Some students and mothers in Miller's universe buy into her methods, while others crack under the pressure. Either way, Dance Moms uniquely captures this outrageous and dynamic interplay among teacher, student and parent as Miller commits herself to bring out the best in those students - and mothers - willing to dedicate themselves to be part of one of the best dance team in the nation.

Dance Moms is produced by Collins Avenue, with Jeff Collins (Fly Girls, Outrageous Kids Parties), Bryan Stinson (High Society) and John R. Corella (Dance Flick) executive producing, along with Rob Sharenow, Gena McCarthy and Kimberly Chessler of Lifetime Television.
