Details on Abby’s Ultimate Dance Competition
Abby’s Ultimate Dance Competition followed a dozen aspiring dancers — ages six through 13 – who learned new routines and competed in a number of challenges designed to test their skills before performing before Miller, Antin and Jackson, as well as a live audience, at the historic Los Angeles Theatre. Along the way, each competitor was accompanied and coached by his or her own mother, who made critical training, costume, music and choreographic decisions for their child while also navigating the precarious waters of the other highly competitive parents. Miller, Antin and Jackson made the sometimes easy and other times difficult decision to eliminate one dancer each week, the intense on stage competition and stakes between dancers and mothers increased throughout the season – culminating with a finale performance that assuredly will change the winning dancer’s life forever.
