The in­spir­ing, funny and ridicu­lous hit Dance

Moms is into its fifth sea­son and we’re hooked! Here are a few fun facts be­hind the scenes of all that dance and drama…

1. Bud­ding star Mad­die Ziegler com­pares her life to a fic­tional Dis­ney char­ac­ter say­ing, “I feel like Han­nah Mon­tana: I’ve got my nor­mal brown hair when I’m com­pet­ing and on

Dance Moms, but when I put on that blonde wig for Sia, I go un­der­cover—I be­come a to­tal weirdo.”

2. The show was awarded Favourite Re­al­ity Show at the 2015 Nick­elodeon Kids’ Choice Awards.

3. Dance teacher Abby was shocked when she dis­cov­ered the show airs in 110 coun­tries, rather than the 30 she had pre­vi­ously be­lieved.

4. Abby has stated that early plans were to make the show 85% about the moms, 10% the kids, and 5% the danc­ing, with Abby not even in the equa­tion.

5. In 2014, Abby’s re­main­ing four dancers from the first sea­son av­er­aged over one mil­lion fol­low­ers on In­sta­gram. Paige, Brooke and Kendall also had over one mil­lion fol­low­ers apiece.
