New TV Show For Dance Moms
“I’m writing this for Dance Moms; I can’t believe I have such great views and a following. So, many beautiful women and beautiful families. It’s crazy to me,” wrote one woman in a Facebook comment. That is exactly how it started. Someone wrote on Facebook that they couldn’t get enough dance gear and wanted to tell other moms about it. Within 24 hours it exploded into an incredible worldwide movement.
First, it all started with a simple Facebook status update. A mother who loved dancing and was supporting her family members’ passion decided to express her support for female dancers everywhere. “I love dancing moms so much,” she wrote. “Just saw the final scene of #DancingMoms on tv and instantly fell in love with this show. I know you’re out there and I want you to know that if you’re in a studio and you have a hard time finding your own kids to watch, maybe some of your friends or a dance studio director might be able to help you out a bit.”
That little comment caused a viral explosion. It was shared by millions of times within minutes and it was featured on several national news shows including CNN and MSNBC. That same day, the show finally launched on MTV and became a huge hit, becoming the second-most viewed reality show of all time on the network behind The Real World. The second episode was a huge ratings success and in just over a week it earned the show the biggest number of million views in history.
What was even more stunning was when the reality show landed on a new spinoff! titled “Dancing with the Stars”, it follows the dancers as they try to find fame, fortune and stardom on Dancing with the Stars. It’s a perfect match for a show that has been so successful, not only with dancers but also with audiences who have been watching since its first season. If the show continues on as expected, there’s no doubt we’ll continue to see many more amazing Dance Moms. Who knows?
I’m excited to see what the future holds for Dance Moms and what kind of impact this new Spinoff will have on the franchise. Will it inspire more dancers to come out of the woodwork and try to join the ranks of their peers? Will it prompt current dancers to take action and become a professional dance instructor? It’s anyone’s guess.
In the meantime, I’ve been enjoying watching Dance Moms. I feel like I’ve known these girls since my days as a dance teacher and I look forward to seeing what kind of adventures they will have in the future. I think it’s safe to say that as long as nia and nash are happy, I’ll be cheering them on. Who knows, maybe I’ll even get to see them perform live!
