Just thought i’d put it out there , that if you’re thinking of watching Dance Mums UK please be aware that dance is completely different here, we don’t have huge competition studios and classes offered here just aren’t at the same level as those offered in the US. Also, in the UK teachers tend to focus on Exam syllabuses , and a lot of dance schools don’t even do competitions, when they do it’s often small festivals rather than huge national tours. Just saying, i’m sure the girls are incredibly talented but don’t go comparing them to American or Australian dancers because they’re in a completely different situation.
I’m glad it’s more like how dance moms was suppose to be- a no nonsense tough love dance teacher, and crazy pushy parents.
It’s not about a teacher setting kids up to fail, or blatant favouritism.
Jennifer Ellison wants to make stars- out of all of her team, not one child. She isn’t bothered about making friends out of their parents, because she knows what’s best.
She’s tough, but not a bully, and that’s what is important.
It has absolutely nothing on the real Dance Moms & the elite team… Especially the budget and costumes.
It was good, quite funny but the dancing isn’t up to the American girls’ standard in my opinion..
They tried but honestly, it wasn’t all that. Things just aren’t the same over here
Dance mums is starting again !!!!!! Wooooooooooh ! I’m so pumped. Tayleur Armos (a dancer on dance mums who got to the finals in the show got to dance and is amazing) said that her idols are Sophia Lucia and Maddie Ziegler ! I’m so freaking out about this how cute !!!
@spookyhylands and really anyone else that watches Dance Mums UK. I help run the wikia for Dance Moms and that includes the UK version as well and I was wondering if you could help me out a bit.
So I live in the US and do not have access to the new episodes of series 2, would you be so kind as to give me a recap of the major events that happen in the show as I’m sure asking for you to put up a stream of the episodes would be taxing on you (but if you could that would be awesome :)).
Anyway, the things I’m looking for are pyramid placements and perhaps why they are there. The dance assignments and styles…the full dances are up on the LifetimeUK YouTube and so it is easy to see what the dances are called and shazaming the songs is easy, but the style of the dance is not the easiest thing to gauge. If you could also let me know the placements of the dances. These though can be found when I follow the dmums twitter, some of the placements are hard to weed through.
Other than those things the rest is still relatively easy to follow and understand. I hope it doesn’t take long for the episodes to air or at least become available to the US. :)
Thanks in advance @spookyhylands and anyone else that can provide the information :)
Apparently there’s a British version of Dance Moms? Do any of you know where I can find it? I’ve only found the first two episodes of Dance Mums: UK. And I’m crying. It’s even more dramatic than the original show??? I wanna see this????
The girls on dance mums may not be able to do as many tricks or turns but there technique is a bit stronger than the dance moms girls but I feel the dance mums girls don’t portray the emotions of their dances anywhere near as well as the dance moms girls.
Also thank you for choreography that is actually varied from dance mums.
To recap dance mums girls, the technique is there but I don’t find them entirely interesting to watch, they have a supportive teacher though which is great.
Dance moms girls: technique really varies from girl to girl but is overall quite poor (from the original girls anyway) but I find them far more interesting to watch.
Going to be honest: the girls on Dance Mums wipe the floor with ALDC. Even the 8 year olds. That Taylor? WOW. What technique and control! Aliyah is incredible!!My God what technical ability and performance! Her emotion is so much stronger than Maddie! Turns are sharper and cleaner….Abby has no place critiquing those girls. Hers wouldn’t stand a chance.
Although I love both shows, I have to say that I really enjoy the fact that Dance Mums uses the actual music, the girls do amazing lifts and also they show clips of organising and making the costumes which they stopped doing for Dance Moms and I really missed it.
does anyone know where I can watch the UK dance moms “Dance Mums with Jennifer Ellison ” online. I’ve been looking everywhere and its driving me crazy, haha anywhere i could even buy or rent the episodes??
WHY DID NO ONE TELL ME THERE IS A UK VERSION OF DANCE MOMS? IT IS CALLED DANCE MUMS AND I CANNOT UNDERSTAND A WORD THEY SAY WHEN THEY START MAKING FIGHTING NOISES. MERRY FUCKIN CHRISTMAS TO ME THIS IS VERY EXCITING.
It’s pouring down with rain at the moment and part of me just wants cuddles, pizza and movies but the other part wants to drive up to the hinterland cause it looks so beautiful and almost haunting when it’s wet and just sit and laugh with someone and listen to the rain.
But I’m just sitting alone watching dance mums thinking I might get a drink or may get a little bud
