The stuff I'm hearing about the show is interesting, should make for a lot of entertainment. I can't wait to see it, it'll be nice to have something different from the tired Abby Lee plots. Older girls and a whole group that auditioned and was recruited should be entertaining. There are teasers for each mom/kid team on youtube.

These kids really are much better than Abby Lee's herd, but I don't find any of them particularly likeable. They all seem a tad smug to me.
Should Lucas have really been doing those lifts? That kid is ripped for a nine-year-old but he's still a little kid. I kept waiting for that girl to land on her head and snap her neck.

I thought the group number and tango duet were really well done. But I have to agree that Jessi’s solo was completely lackluster. I really don’t know what ‘modern jazz” is in the dance world but in my world it looked like some type of tame strip tease. To much swaying and skirt pulling(wtf?), not enough of everything/anything else.

I have boys, so the only thing I can compare it to is their sports. My 13 year old plays AAU basketball. His coach is a former European pro. His jr high team, on the other hand, was coached by a science teacher who may have played on jv in high school. He does the best he can, but there is no comparison. Based on the first episode, that is the quality of the Miami instructors vs Abby, IMO, even though Abby does have knowledge and experience.
I think Christie should move Chloe to Miami ASAP.

The way that mean girl ripped the trophy away from the other girl at the awards ceremony was disturbing. The look on her face! Yikes. And then her mother not being absolutely mortified by her child's behavior but instead lashing out at the offended child's mother? Gross. But from the looks of next week's preview, it seems that the mean girl gets put at the bottom of the list for her attitude, so bravo to the instructors for that. Can we imagine Abby putting Maddie at the bottom of the pyramid for something like that? (Not that Maddie would ever do that in the first place)

I too thought Jessi's solo was lackluster. It just didn't seem to flow with the music to me. Bear in mind that I have no experience with that type of dance though so it may have been very good technically. Still I don't think second it something to be so disappointed about. You might not have placed at all.

This cast is going to have to grow on me still. Maybe a few more episodes.

Lol, now I'm going to be waiting for them to critique someone's routine with, "hated it!"
they remind me of the Men on Film segments from In Living Color that the Wayans brothers did.

Did Victor just shout out Tyler Perry's Madea character? I think he did: "Helleer!" The instructors are cracking me up with their snarkiness.
The mom with the long dark hair looks like Dr. Phil's wife.

Jessi did not impress me. I saw better solos than that from non-competitive dancers where my daughters danced. We did have some excellent dancers who took private lessons and didn't want to compete. Lucas and Kimmy are adorable. Now Kimmy needs to quit baby talking.
1.551 million viewers. Over a million less than the original.

On a positive note, that little Lucas may be the cutest thing ever!

Lucas and Kimmy are adorable, but I agree with the poster who said Kimmy needs to quit baby-talking. I know she probably can't help it, but the rubber band bottom lip when she does her THs is a bit distracting. (Her hair is gorgeous, though.)

Okay, maybe not. I thought the instructors were walking gay stereotypes. I predict in an upcoming episode the subject of the girls' weights will be an issue. A couple of the girls were a bit chunky and that's got to be an issue in dance. Some of Jessi's moves were one step away from working the pole too.

So, were these kids put together specifically for this show?
From what I understand they had an open call for auditions and that these kids for the most part haven't been together. There was another girl that filmed for a bit (Mia Diaz who is known nationally)who trains at Starz that was taken off because her mother was too demanding with the contract so that could explain what the deal was when Sammy came in. She was probably a replacement for Mia and came in a week after the others.
