All-New Dance Instructors, Talented Students and Passionate Mothers at Top Miami Dance School Tango Their Way onto the Dance Floor Immediately Following Explosive Spring Finale of DANCE MOMS

LOS ANGELES, CA (March 5, 2012) - Just when you thought Lifetime's hit docu-series Dance Moms couldn't get more fiery or passionate, the franchise heads south to the hot and sultry beaches of Florida with the premiere of Dance Moms: Miami on Tuesday, April 3, 2012, at 10:30 pm ET/PT -- immediately following the 90-minute spring finale of the network's flagship dance competition docusoap, Dance Moms. Beginning Tuesday, April 10, Dance Moms: Miami will air in its regular time period of 9:00 PM ET/PT.

Dance Moms: Miami will go behind-the-scenes at Miami-based Stars Dance Studio, where the school's owners and renowned contemporary dance instructors Victor Smalley and Angel Armas teach, train and choreograph a diverse group of talented girl and boy dancers as they strive to become the best in the sport of competitive dance and tomorrow's stars. Born and raised in Miami, Victor has become well known throughout the dance world for his cutting-edge choreography, with his first big break as a finalist on season six of the hit show, So You Think You Can Dance. Angel was born in Sagua La Grande, Villa Clara, Cuba. At the age of 12 his passion for dance ignited when he began taking lessons in ballroom dance and now his choreography is in high demand by local TV shows, concerts, and artists.

While Victor and Angel fiercely dedicate their lives to their craft, they expect the same from both their young and impressionable students and their equally passionate mothers. What envelops the series' unique cast, the students' style of performance and their unwavering pursuit of dance titles are the intense drama and often conflicting goals and aspirations among teachers, students and parents. All under the watchful eye of Victor's mother and Stars Dance Studio manager, Mayra Smalley, the team strives to uphold their motto of "Turning Kids into Dancers and Dancers into Stars," often sparking fires between the intensely competitive mothers.

The series will be produced by Collins Avenue and executive produced by Jeff Collins, Bryan Stinson and John R. Corella with Lifetime's Rob Sharenow, Gena McCarthy and Kim Chessler.

Lifetime's flagship competitive dance competitive series Dance Moms follows children's early steps on the road to stardom and their doting mothers who are there for every rehearsal, performance and bow all under the discerning eyes of famously outspoken dance instructor Abby Lee Miller.
