Dance Moms fans, if you’re counting down the episodes and fearing the fast-approaching finale, take heart. You won’t have to go without for long.
In fact, you won’t have to go without at all.
Lifetime announced today that its newest member of the Dance Moms franchise, Dance Moms: Miami, will premiere April 3 at 10:30pm ET, immediately following the 90-minute spring finale of Dance Moms.
According to the network, “Dance Moms: Miami will go behind-the-scenes at Miami-based Stars Dance Studio, where the school’s owners and renowned contemporary dance instructors Victor Smalley (pictured at left) and Angel Armas teach, train and choreograph a diverse group of talented girl and boy dancers as they strive to become the best in the sport of competitive dance and tomorrow’s stars.”
Yes, but what about the moms? We all know that the moms matter most. Not to worry!
“What envelops the series’ unique cast, the students’ style of performance and their unwavering pursuit of dance titles are the intense drama and often conflicting goals and aspirations among teachers, students and parents. All under the watchful eye of Victor’s mother and Stars Dance Studio manager Mayra Smalley, the team strives to uphold their motto of ‘Turning Kids into Dancers and Dancers into Stars,’ often sparking [emotional] fires between the intensely competitive mothers.”
In other words — and in keeping with the general Dance Moms mantra — “Turning Kids into Dancers and Dancers into Stars. And Mothers into Monsters.”
I can hardly wait.
Beginning April 10, Dance Moms: Miami will air in its regular time period of 9pm ET/PT.
