it’s almost like??? the minis are young kids?? and therefore need more time to learn and perfect the choreo???
maybe if the aldc was actually a studio with multiple teachers instead of a small collection of kids being yelled at in a felon’s basement, the two teams would be given enough time to learn their dances with the various teachers
oh my god i just realized what the psychologist mom said is right dance moms has been on long enough that those kids literally have been watching it since they were 2……thats terrifying imagine growing up and literally your goal is to go to aldc
