‘Dance Moms’ Episode Guide (Aug. 19): The ALDC Squares Off Against Studio Bleu

“Abby-phobic” (08/19/14) – The Abby Lee Dance Company heads to Woodbridge, VA to face their toughest competition yet, Studio Bleu. Abby invites Select Team member Jade and new dance mom Loree to join the Elite Team for the week.

Christi is in an uproar when Abby picks Chloe to compete a solo against Jade, two years her senior. Abby shocks everyone when she decides to pull the current group routine and start over from scratch, choreographing a dance about phobias.

Lifetime’s “Dance Moms” is back this summer, and the heat is on when Abby brings in an all-new team to face off with the original dancers. Competition gets fierce among the dancers as they each vie for a spot on Abby’s pyramid. With Maddie’s star growing bright after collaborating with pop singer Sia in her “Chandelier” music video, will she even return?

“Dance Moms” follows young dancers’ early steps on the road to stardom with their doting mothers in tow for every rehearsal, performance and bow… all under Abby Lee Miller’s discerning eyes. The show immerses itself in the highs and lows of the dance competition world and delivers a captivating and dramatic look at the intense pursuit of national dance championship titles.

“Dance Moms” is produced by Collins Avenue, with Jeff Collins (“Abby’s Ultimate Dance Competition,” “The Drama Queen”), Michael Hammond (“Hell’s Kitchen”), Bryan Stinson (“High Society”) and John R. Corella executive producing, and Robert Caplain (“Big Brother,” “Fame”) and Scott Shatsky (“Big Brooklyn Style”) co-executive producing, along with Gena McCarthy and Kimberly Chessler of Lifetime.
