Dance Moms will be back in 2024 for a special reunion, so here is everything we know about the upcoming feature and what to expect from the reality TV show homecoming after all these years.

While Reality TV is a major aspect of the entertainment industry now, there was a time when shows of this nature were few and far between. Particularly those that had a gimmick or focused on a particular world.

Enter Dance Moms, a series that followed a young group of girls who danced competitively for Abbie Lee Miller’s Dance Company. The series, which first debuted in 2011, quickly garnered a massive following. 

In large part due to how the show drew the veil back on the world of competitive dancing and the dynamics surrounding the young girls who compete and their mothers who support them through their aspiring dance careers.

The show aired its final season in 2018, wrapping up an almost decade long journey. Since ending, some of the young women from the show, such as Maddie Ziegler and Jojo Siwa, have continued living a life in the public eye and built upon the success of Dance Moms to become influential young figures.
