You took the words right out of my mouth it's none of the other mother's damn business and Debi doesn't need to focus on every fault and shortcoming of Hannah's it's her job to build the confidence and self-esteem of her child, like every decent parent should. There are enough wackos in the world whose parents have destroyed their self esteem.
I agree with this to a point- it definitely isn't the other moms' problem unless somehow Hannah's ability and weight are costing the GROUP points, etc. However, I think that Debi is not doing Hannah any favors by putting her on this show at all. It's obvious to anyone watching that Hannah, despite her admirable work ethic, is no where near the dancer that any of the other girls are. Heck, Nia and Mac could likely dance circles around her. Also, putting her in a group with other very svelte dancers (in a svelte gendre like dance) cannot make her feel good about herself. The style of dance is just not good for Hannah's abilities either. I feel like if you put her in a hip hop style dance or something she would do much better, because bless the child, she has little to no natural grace.
I enjoy the fact that these girls have better technique than the DMP girls (my 6 year old who dances one hour a week can go into releve -MADI) but I just don't enjoy the style of choreography they do, the lack of camraderie, and the over the top cruelty of the moms. I think I'm done with this show.
