After the dramatic exit of season 6, "Dance Moms" season 7's fate is now hazier than ever. The seventh installment of the dance reality show is about to premiere in a few more days, and previous revelations hint on a more dramatic season. With the Junior Elite Team members going back to their normal lives, fans are now guessing who Abby Lee Miller will put in the so-called "Super Team" that she is referring to in the trailer.
Coach Miller totally lost her Junior Elite Team which she put up since season 1. Miller finally pushed the remaining girls of the group to their limits, and are now on their way home as seen on "Dance Moms" season 6 finale.
"Dance Moms" Season 7 Changes
The new season is said to pick up a few weeks after the Sheer Talent Competition. The ALDC already lost Abby's arguably favorite dancer (Maddie Ziegler) and the Junior Elite Team. Yet the coach has her hopes still set high as she is reportedly planning to form a Super Team that she said will be composed of the best dancers there are.
In the trailer of "Dance Moms" season 7 - and as confirmed by the official synopsis released by Lifetime - Miller will bring together all of her dancers, from the Minis to the ex-Junior Elite Team members, to screen the best dancers that she will absorb to the new group. Rumors even have it that fans might see an audition early on in the season as the coach was revealed to bring in two new girls.
Previous reports say Miller is exerting effort to convince ex-cast Chloe Lukasiak and Zieglar to return as the show has been reportedly suffering from slumping ratings. The return of Lukasiak and Zieglar is expected to boost the show's performance, but the girls have rejected the offer because of their busy schedules. Miller then turned to the Junior Elite moms to announce her plan of forming a new group. This then means that the Elite dancers will still be seen on season 7, but it is not yet clear who among them will stay for the rest of the installment.
Candy Apple's Dance Center Returns
The "Dance Moms" season 7 trailer teased the return of Abby's so-called greatest enemy, Cathy Nesbitt-Stein. In season 1, Cathy enrolled her daughter Vivi-Anne, but later left the group. She then surprised Miller by putting up her own dance studio which she named Candy Apple's Dance Center. Originally consisted by male dancers, Nesbitt's team has been a constant contender of Miller's dancers in competitions. With Nesbitt returning to antagonize Miller, moms who feel degraded by the ALDC coach might just love having the former in the new season.
More dramatic events are expected to happen on "Dance Moms" season 7 which is scheduled to air on Tuesday, Nov. 29 on Lifetime.
