    None of the eight kids were ever into dance or voice so I'm a bit shocked by the intensity of those kids, Moms and the Owner. I know it is a Reality Show but really ?? do children really take dance lessons six days a week and travel to competitions that often? Just curious. DDD

    I caught a bit of it the other day. Apparently if the moms pay that much for the lessons the kids do.

    My friend's daughter takes dance. Before competition/performances they have practice 3 days per week. Otherwise it's 1-2xs, depending on the program she's in. But theirs is a small community company for "fun". They are not looking to win national titles.

    I watch it. Hubby has a folder in the DVR labeled "Train Wreck TV" for things like this. Those moms are even nuttier than the Toddlers and Tiaras moms. I wonder how many of those girls are really into dancing, or if their moms are just pushing them. That one mom, Christi, is seriously bitter about nearly everything.

    You know I am into it...lol. I watch Toddlers and Tiara's and Dance mom's religiously. I dont think I would push Keyana that hard unless she was extremely talented and showed some kind of over the top gift for it. I dont think any of those girls do with the except of that one little girl Mattie. At 8, she is pretty darned talented.

    The moms on that show are idiots. I dont get that one mom Cathy who owned or still owns her own dance studio but brings her kids Vivian to this studio at what 5/6 years old? The kid doesnt even want to dance! Cathy isnt a team player and is causing problems between the other moms. Weirdo. Then we have the alky moms...lol. I really cant blame the teacher for feeling like she has to control the entire bunch of them.
