Space Events and Foxtel announced today that world renowned dance choreographer and teacher Abby Lee Miller and the cast of the hit U.S. TV Show Dance Moms, are returning Down Under this March to find Australia’s Ultimate Dancer.
And, for the first time ever the tour will be filmed for two episodes as part of Dance Moms Season 5.
After last year’s hugely successful visit, Foxtel and LifeStyle YOU are teaming up with Space Events to bring the famously outspoken Abby Lee Miller back to Australia where she will hold a series of Master Classes, Showcases and Dance Competitions.
Joining her on tour will be Maddie Ziegler, Abby’s 12 year old protégé and star of the recent Sia video “Chandelier”, her assistant Gianna, and students Mackenzie (whose self-titled debut album “Mack Z” hit number 1 on the U.S. Pop iTunes Chart), Kendall, Kalani and their infamous moms Melissa, Jill and Kira.
With the tour kicking off in just over three weeks, Abby Lee Miller says she is excited to be coming back to Australia: “We had an amazing response to our last tour Down Under and are excited about coming back, and this time we will be searching for Australia’s Ultimate Dancer!” she exclaims.
“We’d love to bring the winner back to LA to appear in an episode of Dance Moms and show the world just how great and dedicated Aussie dancers are. This time we’ll also be filming Dance Moms while in Australia making it even more special for everyone who joins in the creative chaos!”
Aspiring dancers can take part in one of Abby Lee Miller’s famous Master Classes, while avid DANCE MOMS fans can attend the Showcases to get up close and personal with the stars of the hit reality series (including photos with Abby and the dancers) and watch never-beforeseen choreography from the talented pupils of Abby Lee Miller’s Pittsburgh dance studio.
Dance Teachers and School owners are encouraged to enter their students in the competition because Abby is also looking for Australia’s ultimate dance studio!
The first of the Master Classes kicks off Friday, March 13th at Bankstown Sports Club in Sydney followed by the Showcase and Dance Competition at NIDA on 14th and 15th March.
The tour then heads to Adelaide before concluding in Melbourne.
