    Honestly, I almost forgot Dance Moms was where Maddie Ziegler first appeared, before she became the "Sia dancing girl" from Chandelier. With all the stuff that's come out following "Music" about Sia and Maddies "maternal" relationship (to the extent that Sia openly admitted her choice to star Maddie in the attrocity that is "Music" was nepotism), and knowing Sia discovered Maddie from Dance Moms, I feel like there's a really dark theory that starts to fall into place...

    I was honestly disgusted with the hip hop dance that they had mckenzie do along with the costume for her last competition dance I believe?

    I grew up watching the show, and like you said- because I had experienced verbal and emotional abuse in my life I didn't see anything wrong with the girl's treatment. Hell, I even sided with Abby some of the time. Which is sad since some of those girls were older than I was...

    If Grant Davies is the guy I think he is I’m pretty sure he choreographed the Paige and Chloe duet “Broadway Blondes” and likely approved of the very inappropriate costumes. I can’t imagine what sick intentions that man had. That dance was one of the worst for me. Also the whole studio he was part of (RG dance in Australia) used to have their dancers wearing very small costumes that barely covered anything. It always gave me the creeps. But what’s worse is I bet there are so many more predators like him in the competitive dance scene. It makes me feel sick even thinking about it.

    The world of dance is an intense arena for anyone. They start off young like this because there is an age bracket. Once you are in your 30s, you will likely be nearing the end of your career, unless you go on to become a dance teacher. So in order to make the most out of a dance career, you have to start young and get good at it fast. So they work these kids to the bone. Is it always done in an abusive and exploitive way? No, not always. But far too often, it is. And many parents are so focused on making sure their kids get ahead, they don’t see the red flags. Or that willingly ignore them thinking “It’ll be worth it in the end.”

    Everyone needs to look into how fucked up Sia's "relationship" with Maddie Zeigler is. That's so sad Maddie was in a gross situation on this show and then Sia became her "mentor" and has crossed so many boundaries. Sia is obsessed with her and said they would have sleepovers and cuddle every week starting when she was like 12 or something. And Sia said she never wants to do anything again if Maddie is not a part of it

    I know Cuties was not executed very well, but the whole POINT of Cuties was that this happens in real life, sexualization of children is "normal" in the dance world. I'm not going to defend the movie, but it's irritating that people talked about how awful it was and completely failed to acknowledge that it was *trying* to point out something very real. Cuties IS real life. The problem with the movie is that it ended up perpetuating that.

    When I was younger my parents never let me do dance, it made me sad bc I wanted to but I didn't get it. As I got older, they started to explain that they were trying to keep me away from the rabid sexualization of young girls. I'd go to see my friend's recitals and they were so.... Vulgar. For a bunch of 9-12 year olds, it was vulgar. What scares me is that we see dance moms and go "wow look that's terrible!" And we don't stop to think "wow! That's the whole dance industry!"

    I watched the savantics video on this, and I learned that one of the girls on abby’s dance team was tricked into saying something shallow by the producers, which got edited into her saying she was a better dancer than everyone else and ultimately was made the “villain” of the show. The hate for her got so bad that she started getting death threats from fans of the show.

    I couldn’t watch dance moms because the previews for it disturbed me so much. I kinda felt the kids were being sexually abused behind the scenes and I knew they were being sexulized by the dance moves that one woman kept having them do. It bothered me that non of the moms got together and said NO this is inappropriate! I don’t want my daughter dancing that way, she’s a little girl. It got so bad that when the previews came on for the show I changed the channel. I told my husband “The sad thing is we won’t even hear about the crap that actually went on in that show until so much damage has be done to those poor kids. Not one parent there is protecting them.”

    I don’t normally comment but MAN this hit really close to home. I wasn’t in competitive dance but I WAS abused by my dance teacher from ages 11-13. Only recently, at the age of 20, have I really started to address it. Most of it is blocked out. She was always nice in front of my mother. But because I was close to her daughter’s age I was a threat, so she constantly yelled and screamed and humiliated me in front of my peers. The similarities to Abby are kinda big. To this day I still get exceptionally anxious whenever I try and repeatedly fail at something, because my body anticipates being screamed at.

Like all the things that made me feel weird and alone I'm realizing I wasn't alone in them. Like learning I'm not the only competitive dancer who absolutely was an emo kid, struggled with depression and self harm, and loved anime. I never met another dancer with the same interests as me. In fact my dance studio kinda banded together to bully me to the point I lost my love of dance entirely and it was just cause I was so different. Like it makes me feel alot better knowing that there are other people out there who were so similar to me.
