Get ready for tears, screaming and drama galore when you tune into Dance Moms: Miami on Lifetime. If you’ve ever seen the original Dance Moms in Pittsburgh, you know what I am talking about.
Staying true to the original, the bickering moms, talented dancers and intense choreographers are back – Miami style. Victor and Angel work together choreographing dances, so along with the moms voicing their opinions to them, you get to see the additional drama and bickering between the two of them.
Many aspects of the show are very similar to the original. Instead of “the pyramid,” Victor and Angel implemented “the list,” in which they put the dancers in order based on their recent attitudes and performances. The setup of the show is essentially the same. The cameras follow the dancers as they learn difficult choreography in a short amount of time, travel to various competitions around the country to compete and win numerous awards. Crying, fighting and yelling fill all the gaps in between. These devoted dance moms are not afraid to make their opinions known, especially when it comes to defending their child.
Despite the drama, this spin-off doesn’t measure up. The Miami choreography does not seem as interesting and innovative. As an avid fan of the original Dance Moms for two seasons (and not missing an episode), I have grown attached to those girls and moms, so my opinion might be a little biased. I don’t know yet if I will continue to watch this season. But I’d encourage you to make tune in and decide for yourself!
