When I was little, I went to basically a low-rent version of this kind of dance studio. I think they wanted to be rabidly competitive, but nobody was good enough for that. I wanted to be in class with a friend, but she was in more advanced classes and they just let me, a chubby little nerd with zero dance experience, merrily join in.
Our recital costumes were red spandex crop tops and bike shorts with gold lace ruffle collars attached. So please, try to imagine a fat little turd of a kid in red spandex and gold lace ruffles, shimmying beneath the blazing stage lights to Aretha Franklin's "Pride", and you've got my preteen years summed up.
And yet, I only managed about twenty minutes of this. Pure evil.
I'As a rule, I have avoided watching shows of the "child abuse for fun and profit" genre. For some reason, I played this one. Only watched the first part and I'm uncertain whether I will watch the rest.
It was even more cringe inducing that I expected. These girls deserve better this. If you are a parent and relate to Maddie's mother, you've failed as a parent. If you relate to Abby, you've failed as a human.
When I was a male nanny for a well-to-do, well-bred Southern family, their daughters were forced (basically withheld love until they complied and competed as ferociously as possible in this backstabbing little world) into doing this while their mothers all jockeyed to push their daughters into position to be the alpha bitch. To the point where the mothers spied, or sent spies, to watch each other. Not to mention that rival dance studios did that to each other as well.
My girlfriend, up until this semester, taught at one of these schools and its as hellish as you'd expect and it all comes from the parents.
Keep in mind the girls I used to nanny danced for at least 3 to four hours a day five days a week outside of recitals and competitions. Which is either horrific or surprisingly normal if you're unfamiliar with how this world works.
I hate it when people live their lives through their kids.

"Elton John is straighter then those legs" wow lady. That'd be fucked up even if they were not a group of 8-9 year olds.
Oh the terrible, terrible lulz.
the show probably has a writer that comes up with zingers that the producer can have abby, etc., toss off on camera.
White Trash Party
Yeah... it's a little too snide for someone who's whole stick is to be fat and loud.
Some of it is totally blatantly staged too like how when club-mom and abbey are arguing right as the winners of first place are announced.
I know you're white trash and all, but...
Shtick. Or schtick. Either is acceptable, but it's not a homonym for something brown and sticky.
It's like Cobra Kai for lolis.
I can't finish this one either, but five stars for "Sometimes when Abby yells it makes me laugh, cuz her face turns red".
All of these potential waifus have been ruined by this terrible dance class! Do not want!
If those were my options consider me forever alone.
Sorry, guys, where are my Hive manners? After PoE-Red collapsed, I spent too much time on ED.
Maybe Abby should show us those flips and spins so all the kids know how to do it right.
Then they were forced to fight each other, gladiator style.
Five for the mothers acting victimized by this woman, and yet paying her thousands of dollars to do this to their children. That's some blue ribbon mental gymnastics right there.
This sort of cognitive dissonance is not all that uncommon these days.
Repeating the statements of others in quotations:
For those times when you're butthurt and can't think of a bitchy retort.
You've spent half of these comments deriding other people for being 4chan users, and the other half using words like "butthurt" and "lulz"...
I guess what I'm trying to say is: Stop that.
