Hello, my name is Rebecca and I’m addicted to Dance Moms. And now Lifetime’s feeding into this obsession with a new series featuring Dance Moms‘ Abby Lee Miller. The network says Miller will be the lead judge on the new reality competition series, Abby’s Ultimate Dance Competition. Joining Miller on the judging panel are Pussycat Dolls’ founder Robin Antin and dancer/choreographer Richard Jackson. Kevin Manno’s been tapped to host the series which will air this fall.
The 10 episode first season will feature 12 talented boys and girls who’ll be competing for $100,000 and a scholarship to the Young Dancer Program at the Joffrey Ballet School in New York.

Abby’s Ultimate Dance Competition will begin by following a dozen aspiring dancers — ages six through 13 – who will learn new routines and compete in a number of challenges designed to test their skills when they perform before Miller, Antin and Jackson, as well as a live audience, at the historic Los Angeles Theatre. Along the way, each competitor will be accompanied and coached by his or her own mother, who will make critical training, costume, music and choreographic decisions for their child while also navigating the precarious waters of the other highly competitive parents. As Miller, Antin and Jackson must make 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 increase throughout the season – culminating with a finale performance that assuredly will change the winning dancer’s life forever.
