In this mother of all competition series, a dozen of the country's most talented kid dancers compete in weekly dance challenges. Twelve kids and their moms will move into a mansion and the kids will perform a new routine each week while the moms manage and oversee them. Will the moms get in the way of their child's success and cost them the chance of winning? Each week, someone is eliminated, narrowing down the field to see who will become the top dancer. The winner will receive a cash prize of $100,000 and a scholarship for full tuition to The Joffrey Ballet School. Dance Mom instructor Abby Lee Miller serves as one of the judges.
