Is Everyone Replaceable?
Dance Moms – 1/1/13
The new season begins and Kelly did not show up with her two daughters Paige and Brooke. Abby is of course furious and takes it out on the children. According to Abby “everyone is replaceable”, so why is she so upset? Abby holds open auditions for new members of the dance team.
Kelly has a conversation with Paige and Brooke asking if they want to go back to the dance school. Brooke then flips the question and asks her mom if she wants to go back. Of course Kelly says no.
Abby announces that Kendall will get a solo this week. While working with Kendall, Abby tells her the other dancers who were trying out were a hundred times better than her. Kendall goes to her mom crying. Jill goes to talk to Abby to defend her daughter and ends up storming out. The competition this week is in Denver, Colorado. The new moms arrive and Abby chooses Ally to be the new dancer on the team. Since Ally is the tallest she has to take Chloe’s featured part in the group dance. Everyone is up in arms, but before they can prepare the pitchforks, Abby gives Chloe a solo in the competition. She also threatens to pull the group number if the girls don’t get it together. Holly confronts Abby to ask her if she is going to pull the group number because if so, she doesn’t want to travel all the way across the county if Nia is not going to dance. Abby does not give Holly a straight answer.
Abby meets with Shelly, the new dance mom. She seems like she is nice, but those other moms do know how to bring the claws out of anyone. The moms want Shelly to stand up to Abby and say she wants there to be a group dance. She eventually does talk to Abby.
Maddy’s solo was nice as always. Chloe did an amazing job on her solo and she looks like she has grown a couple of inches taller. Kendall’s solo was not very exciting. The group dance was fantastic. Ally did a great job as the angel. During Mackenzie’s solo her red bow flies out of her hair and Mackenzie forgets part of her dance. But she still manages to win first place. Good job Mackenzie! Kendall takes fifth place. Chloe gets second place. Maddy takes home the first place as usual.The group dance also gets first place. Abby should be proud of all of the girls, but we all know she will probably end up finding a reason to go all “maniac” on them.
