DESCRIPTION:
(from Lifetime's press release, August 2013) The second season of Lifetime's popular series, Abby's Ultimate Dance Competition (#AbbysUltimate) is set to come back bigger and better than ever on Tuesday, September 3, at 9:00pm PT/ET with new contestants and moms, unexpected twists, fierce challenges and more of the dance instructor everyone loves to hate, Abby Lee Miller. With 11 of the country's most promising young dancers selected from more than 1,000 national title holders, this season of Abby's Ultimate Dance Competition will reach a fever pitch while a new cluster of mothers brings an entirely new meaning to the term "stage mom" as their children put everything on the line for a $100,000 cash prize and a scholarship to the Young Dancers Program at the Joffrey Ballet School in New York. Throughout the 12-episode season, each dancer will learn new routines and compete in a number of challenges designed to test their skills while performing before judges Miller, Broadway star Rachelle Rak (Fosse, Cats and Catch Me If You Can), celebrity choreographer Richard "Richy" Jackson (Lady Gaga's "Marry the Night") and a live audience. Along the way, each competitor's mother will play an integral part in the competition as they make critical make-or-break decisions on training, costumes, music and choreography for their child while building their list of "frenemies" among the group of intensely competitive parents.
