RING IN 2014 WITH AN ALL-NEW SEASON OF "DANCE MOMS" BEGINNING JANUARY 1

ABBY LEE MILLER TO KICK OFF SEASON FOUR WITH NATIONAL SCOUTING TOUR IN SEARCH FOR NEW TALENT TO JOIN HER DANCE COMPANY

LOS ANGELES, CA (October 25, 2013) - New Year... New Team? What Abby Lee Miller says, goes and when she says, "everyone is replaceable," she means it! For the fourth season of Lifetime's hit docuseries Dance Moms, Abby will take to the road with a national scouting tour in search for the country's most elite young dancers. With the threat of new dancers coming into the company, the dance moms will stop at nothing to make sure their girls have a place to shine on stage, even if it means going up against Abby. The new season of Dance Moms premieres Wednesday, January 1, 2013, at 9pm PT/ET, with new episodes airing Tuesdays at 9pm ET/PT.

For the dancers who think they have what it takes and for the parents who can go toe-to-toe with Abby, the Dance Moms national scouting tour will make stops in the following cities:

· October 25th in Orlando, FL

· November 8th in Atlanta, GA

· November 22th in New York City

More information on the tour can be found at www.dancemomscasting.com.

To kick off the season premiere of Dance Moms on January 1, Lifetime will debut Dance Moms Special: Guess Who's Coming to the Dance? at 8:00 pm PT/ET. In the special, Abby and the moms reunite to hash out the drama of last season while updates on the girls are unveiled and they take to center stage with new performances.

Dance Moms season three averaged 2.1 million Total Viewers and was the #1 unscripted program in its Tuesday 9-10p time period among Women. The season premiere delivered 2.8 million Total Viewers, becoming the series' most-watched telecast ever.

Nominated for a multiple Teen Choice Awards, 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 (Dance Moms, Abby's Ultimate Dance Competition, The Drama Queen, Fly Girls), Michael Hammond (Dance Moms, Hell's Kitchen), Bryan Stinson (Dance Moms, High Society) and John R.
