I've got some spoilers..
The rumor I've heard is that the girl from our old studio was in the final 3 & that surprised me. She's a good dancer but certainly not the strongest in her age group in our area & I thought her mom was pretty low drama. I heard a dancer named Gianna won. Apparently the strongest dancer was sent out early - Kailani (spel?). I can't believe the show is continuing since it didn't seem to be a hit. I won't be tuning in. It's so fake & phony but that's "reality" t.v. I guess

I heard from someone on the show that the producers were so cheap that they didn't even put the contestants up in a hotel. They had to stay in trailers in the parking lot.

Interesting spoilers. I won't be tuning in either somebody posted a picture of Maddie with two boys she tagged AUDC2 , so at least one of them are on the show. They had very similar first names and the same last name (I am assuming they are brothers). On one of the boys pages he said follow my sister she is also a contest on AUDC. So maybe all three?

Really? With the money they are making. But parents still stayed. And I dont understand the prize money. It doesn't add up. I heard the choreography sass or jazz replaces that woman judge.

I thought that Kalani won because she has been assisting Abby at her Master Classes but who knows? Tyler and Travis Atwood are the brothers that will be on the show. From pictures it seems that a click forms between 4 of the moms. I will be watching I actually enjoyed the show!

Who knows last year Brianna won but I don't think Abby has been to involved with her this year. However, Madison and Abby have had master classes together.

They are twin bothers, Tyler and Travis Atwood. They are big Pulse dancers, we see them every year. They were both Protégés this year and are very nice, very talented dancers. Their mom is very nice, as well.

ETA: One of them tends to be a stronger dancer than the other, but I'm not sure which.

Oh, and there's no sister that I know of. I'm thinking he used "sister" as a term of endearment.

What’s the point of bringing Maddie on? I assume the other dancers on the show will be much better dancers than Maddie, so why bring her on there to dance?? No offense to Maddie. She’sa good little dancer, but you can find a “Maddie” at any competition, any dance studio in America. She’s good, but definitely not great and far from being a star. And I think Briana only attended Joffrey for the summer.

Travis is the stronger dancer.  He was the 2011 mini male outstanding dancer at NYCDA and best male dancer at The Dance Awards.  So he's already won free admittance to all NYCDA, Nuvo, Jump and Dance Awards workshops for life.  Not a bad deal. He won breakout artist again this year at the Nuvo in my area, and Tyler was runner up.

JoJo Siwa & Mckaylee True are from the same studio. JoJo's mother does own a non-competing studio so JoJo competes under the different studio in a nearby city. JoJo is home schooled. She did take 1 year to attend public school. She attended the same school & is in the same grade as my son. According to her Mom, she hated public school so back to home school she went. Mckaylee based on the last name and location, is also from a parent-owned dance studio. 

I've had the pleasure to see JoJo dance at the local competitions this past year. JoJo is pretty amazing. I'm excited to follow this year's competition. Your Daily Dance has a list of the contestants with some videos.

McKaylee True's mother, Shari True, also owns a dance studio (True Dance).  Contrary to what is being claimed on the show, Jojo Siwa competed for True Dance last year. She is a studio hopper (3 studios in past 3 years). She also did not return to True Dance for their nationals in Las Vegas.

Jojo (or more likely, her mom Jessalyn) must have listed SynergyTech Jazz on the application. I presume that this may have something to do with the fact that the owner of SynergyTech died in January 2011. Of course, at that time, Jojo already had left SynergyTech for another studio (Cheryl Priess Dickey) after she had essentially danced independently (using the STDC name) the previous season. (To the best of my recollection, she never danced in any local competitions with STDC or was part of any group numbers).

[It should be noted that Jessalyn Siwa sold her dance studio to the deceased SO, who changed the name to STDC.)

I am interested in watching because True Dance is very ballet-focused, and McKaylee True is technically a well-trained dancer. From what I have seen from Abby's dancers on "Dance Moms", it should be an eye-opener for Abby.

I don't think Kalani's mom teaches for Club Dance that is another Kira I believe but I may be wrong.

 You are correct! Kira Girard is Kalani's mom... The teacher at Club Dance is Kira Dimartino.

Haley Huelsman goes to a local studio around here. She lives in CT but travels two hours to Long Island. Brianna was at Joffrey but only for the summer. And just for the knowledge of all of you moms, while Joffrey NYC has a few good teachers and they are very pricey, they are not very exclusive. I know of multiple dancers who were accepted into their 'trainee' program who wouldn't even get into most other schools. They don't have any true connection to the Joffrey company in Chicago anymore. They do have a few good teachers, but the school isn't as good as it is portrayed.

You are correct that she sold her original studio which changed to Synergy Tech. I was not aware JoJo ever competed with STJC. My understanding is she wanted to take time off to just be a Mom. I don't understand your comment about STJC's SO's death. Totally unrelated and irrelevant. At least from what I heard and my DD has friends who danced there.

I'm sure when you're a studio owner for several years. You compete against other local studios it's probably quite challenging to find a studio for your own kid to compete with. Not only are you hyper critical of the technique/instruction but some other SOs may not like the idea of a prior SO joining their studio. But she since opened another studio. It's called Just Dance. They do not compete. The competition I saw JoJo at she competed under the True Dance studio. She was in some small groups, trio and a solo. She did very well. It was entertaining to watch her.

Well, Jojo no longer is with True Dance, so I guess that you were fortunate to see her dance with the other girls.

Jessalyn and Jojo are running out of Omaha-area studios to join. With the former SynergyTech girls at Kitty Lee now, that studio is out. (Plus, Jojo would be 3rd best in the Junior age group at that studio, which also may have been why they left STJC initially.) Maybe she will just go completely independant, since teamwork has not proven to be her strongest attribute recently.

As far as Jojo's and Jessalyn's diva attitudes, when you have to join a new studio, after burning yoru bridges elsewhere, you can't be too critical, especially since CPD is one of the best in this area of the country.

Yes, I know all about Just Dance. I have been part of the dance scene in Omaha for several years. My kids are close in age to Jojo, and seen some of the dance histrionics first hand.

DD became friends with McKaylee last year at nationals and found her to be not just a fabulous dancer but a very nice girl.  I hope she does well.
