    She's a paid dance instructor. Those moms can pull those kids out at any time. They are there because ALM produces highly talented well trained dancers.

    I don't always agree with her techniques. But it's her studio.

    I don't always agree with my child's coaches. It's either stay or walk. My choice.

    They sign a contract with the lifetime tv show, so it's not exactly true that they can pull the child out at any time.
    But as we all know there are a lot of things some parents will do or put up with for any potential fame and fortune. I am not sure that makes it o'key.
    Just my opinion

    That's why each parent has rights.
    We all raise our children how we see fit.

    Several of those kids were at that studio long before "Dance Moms" was a show. So yeah, they could have been pulled long before that Lifetime contract.

    I think Nia started there when she was 3 or so. Maddie and Mackenzie have grown up there too.

    My kids had incredible coaches who not only taught the sport and got incredible results with their athletes but also built character and were an example of what it means to be a decent human being. I honestly never saw them in screaming matches with kids and parents as I've seen on the commercials for this show.

    They scream at each other through the show. I believe they might be encouraged to do so by the producers, although why anyone would think this is enjoyable to watch is beyond my understanding. I also doubt at least some of the competitions these kids go to are real. Some time you can see there is almost no one in the audience except the mothers themselves.

    I think Abby here could be in real trouble. Apparently bankruptcy fraud is taken very seriously.

    Karma. Love it! You want to be a greedy, dishonest slimeball, you deserve to pay. I can't stand this woman or this show. She is an arrogant, sarcastic, obnoxious neanderthal. The Moms are as bad in terms of their gossiping, backstabbing, fighting, arguing, OMG. Just shameful. The only ones with any class or decency are the girls. I am so ashamed for all of these women, the way they carry on, all for money. Of course I feel the same way about stupid shows like any of the Real Housewives shows, too. Nothing but women fighting, scheming, gossiping, bickering just making huge fools of themselves. Barf.

    Lol, no. You should see what Romanian and Chinese gymnasts go through since the age of 3-4 if you want to cry abuse. Abby was just not "yes, you can, you are a special snowflake" type of adult the US society cherishes.

    ‘Dance Moms’ star due in court on fraud charges

    Joe Mandak, Associated Press 9:14 a.m. EST November 2, 2015

    Pittsburgh — “Dance Moms” star Abigale Lee Miller is to appear before a federal magistrate in Pittsburgh to be arraigned on charges that she tried to hide $775,000 worth of income from the Lifetime network reality show and spinoff projects during her Chapter 11 bankruptcy.

    The investigation began when a channel-surfing bankruptcy judge saw Miller on TV in December 2012 and figured she had to be making more than the $8,899 in monthly income she was claiming...

    Abby Lee Miller and Kelly Hyland finally settled their "Dance Moms" lawsuits last week in Los Angeles.

    Kelly had agreed to drop her lawsuit filed against Abby and Collins Avenue Entertainment. "Dance Moms" can still use images of Kelly and her daughters, Paige and Brooke, in reruns albeit for a price.

    And as part of the agreement, Collins Avenue Entertainment will pay $17,500 to replace the floors in Kelly's home allegedly damaged during the show's production. They must also "keep a friendly front."
