Dance Moms is an American reality show. She plays at the Abby Lee Dance Company in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, and Los Angeles California, and she follows the careers of children in dance and show business, with her mothers playing an important role. The program is dominated by highlights on the way of the girls as well as dramas between the mothers, as well as the competition between the children.
Lifetime has yet to announce the renewal for "Dance Moms" season 8. Meanwhile, Cinema Blend reports that the new season of "Dance Moms" could rely largely on whether Miller will be sentenced or not. After all, she is still running ALDC. If rumors of production having kicked off are true, delaying the sentence could produce a slew of new episodes.

- Director: Jeff Collins
- Season: 8
- Actors: Abby Lee Miller, Maddie Ziegler, Kalani Hilliker, Kendall Vertes, Mackenzie Ziegler
- Genre: Reality competition
- Country: USA
- TV channel: Lifetime
If the hearing is moved to a point in the year after Season 7 has finished but before Season 8 has begun, Lifetime could simply delay the new season until Abby Lee Miller has served her time. The maximum sentence for her guilty plea is two and a half years, but Miller's attorney are obviously planning to ask for a less severe ruling. If she is only sent away for a matter of months, the network might feel more comfortable simply putting off Season 8 for a bit. After all, what's Dance Moms without Abby Lee Miller?
Dance Moms Plot
At the Abby Lee Dance Company in Pittsburgh, owned and run by the dance teacher Abby Lee Miller, young girls between the ages of 9 and 13 learn to dance professionally. They travel week after week to various dance competitions and hope to get an invitation to one of the national dance contests.
Shown are the highs and lows of the competition season and the dramas on the way to the national dance title. Rivalries between the mothers develop. The dances are mainly choreographed by Miller and her co-workers, with the exception of some guest choreographers. Later, competing dance teams were also introduced. In Season 5 Miller brings the group to Los Angeles.
Due to the increasing age of the elite team, Miller introduced a so-called mini-team, consisting of 6 to 11-year-olds in the 6th season. In Season 7, however, she rescinded the mini-team, retaining only two of the original 5 dancers of the team and formed a large team with you and Elites.
As of late, the cast of "Dance Moms" are back in Pittsburgh. Season 7, episodes 11 to 13 will take place in Pittsburgh and will feature the return of Chloe Lukasiak. The "Center Stage: On Pointe" star also hinted on the renewal of "Dance Moms" for more episodes in its current season.
While speaking with Teen Vogue, Lukasiak said that there is still so much in store for her and the ALDC. However, it is also possible the team will continue to participate in competitions, but this will no longer be featured on "Dance Moms."
Miller is awaiting her sentencing for fraud, and may be asked to go to jail for two and a half years. If this happens, the competition will not have their main coach around to teach them their routines. Miller's assistant, Giann Martello, could take her place in the upcoming episodes and seasons.
Meanwhile, things seem to be going well for the "Dance Moms," Miller and the ALDC. To add to the renewal rumors, Miller recently posted a video of JoJo Siwa dancing at the ALDC LA studio. The controversial coach used the hashtags "she's back" and "season 7" to hint at Siwa's return to the Lifetime reality TV show.
Siwa exited "Dance Moms" Season 6 just a few weeks after Maddie and Mackenzie Ziegler left the show. She did not explain her and her mom Jessalyn Siwa's decision to leave the team out of the blue.

Chloe Lukasiak Returns, Dance Moms Is Not Cancelled!
Abigail Gee it's bunch of rumors chloe did hinted if you listen to the actual she might be returning for dance moms and other projects on the side. I think people should believe everything they see on the internet cause it's not official announced by lifetime or anybody on dance moms. I think if it's the last season I'll be upset that Chloe joined the girls without seeing her dance. Idk I'm strong believer it's rumor every season there's some type of rumor they are ending cause it takes them awhile to film episode. I do think there's going to be season eight Chloe kinda hinted that there might be.
Chloe's mom was always jealous of Maddie. So since Maddie is gone and Chloe is back watch out Kalani Chloe's mom will be coming after you now.
If there is a season 8 I hope Jill learns to control her loud bullying mouth and keeps it shut. She really spoils the show especially when she had her other big trouble starting mouth working for her, that being Jojo's mom. Jill's loud criticizing voice is so annoying, even to the point of having to mute the tv when her motor mouth starts.
Season 7 was not the last. Kaleigh Kristen actually there's no official word yet on when the last season is. The Nationals episode was supposed to be the last episode ever because of the contract with Lifetime ended. A few weeks ago is when the show actually got renewed for the second part of 7b. Abby's hearing will be during this part of the season and the show is looking for someone to replace her if she does go to jail as a backup plan.
The court date for sentencing has been postponed yet again! This must be why filming has continued.
Maybe the judge has become a Dance Moms fan? The producers did a great job of ending the series Tuesday night. Wouldn't it be nice if they had to find a brand new way to end it when the sentencing hearing finally takes place - if it ever does? Or, better still, perhaps the producers will think up a way for Dance Moms to continue if and when Abby Lee Miller ever gets sentenced to prison time? If gang members and the heads of crime families manage to arrange "HITS" from behind bars, surely MISS ABBY can arrange choreographed numbers the same way? Just a thought ...
So is Chloe joining the aldc because in the last episode and other interviews I believe Chloe says she wanted to be part of the ALDC again and dance and then Abby said "kill me" Or is Chloe competing in the nationals but with another dance studio?
Since maddie is gone and Chloe is back she might be the next maddie because they were always competitors too each other and now Abby can focus on Chloe
Chloe is going to be on season 8! I saw a video that someone snuck of Chloe practicing her dance! Its going to go on without Abby! I caught that sly little hint from Christie! People have been outraged by Abbys treatment of the girls and wanting her fired fir years! But this year she was different, actually complimented the girls and was date I say it, "NICE"! Like they say you don't know what you have till you loose it! Too bad, she may have learned a new way, kindness, just look how far and how many wins they got with her being nice to the girls! Now Cathy makes me want to puke! Her daughter can't dance and you can tell she doesn't even want to and thryvalways lose when she is in the dance! But that hag makes Abby look Classy! At least Abby doesn't egg them on and they are constantly going after Abby! They should have been disqualified for the dance where they had a doll made up to look like Abby and made fun of her! What do those women at Candy Apples think those kids are learning from them and Cathy! Its disgusting! maybe them always being more focused on revenge is why they always lose to Abby! and funny how they won at nationals and then Cathy's fully ass shows back up! I was really proud of Janet when she told Cathy she crossed the line and walked! Those mothers should have see that Cathy doesn't care about them or their kids either! All she cats about is beating Abby! She's hired real choreographers, bought dancers, even tried cheating didn't do her any good! And say what you want about Abby but dang she's good! She knows what wins and has a great imagination and vision for dances!
