I am enjoying getting caught up on Dance Moms recaps today but I am not going to recap all four episode. I started with the episode with the coffin group dance. Of course I thought that was a horrible idea, but I actually thought they did a great job at the competition and was surprised they placed so low. Lily is clearly the lead now that Brady had some sort of prior commitment or something. I don’t believe for a moment that Abby wanted to bench Brady. I also don’t understand what happened with Savannah.
Basically, this team is not cohesive. Now that Yolanda and Elianna are back the problems have intensified. I don’t understand how all the other girls on the team can get to practice while homeschooling but Elianna can’t. PLUS, her mother is at rehearsals without her. Isn’t she her homeschool teacher? Also, if Elianna really was studying ancient Greece a trip to Rome would most certainly count toward her home schooling. When I missed school while living in Libya because we needed to leave the country for two week and return for our visas, I kept journals and did my math homework on the plane. All the kids did. And we blew our standardized tests out of the water.
What Is With All The Props?
They have scissorhands, ropes, tables, coffins and all matter of crazy things. And crazy dances. They had a dance about hazing that made no sense. Now they are doing a dance with blood. I get these kids are not as good as the originals, but is all of this over the top stuff with the props really necessary?
Oh look another new kid. She looks like a mini. How will Kamryn fit into this group? Is she just a soloist?
I’m finally on the last episode in my DVR. Brady is back. Ellianna is back. And Jo Jo with the Bow Bow is making a special guest appearance. Jo Jo is pretty much the only one of the former ALDC dancers who visited Abby when she was in the hospital. She’s such a sweet girl. I am thrilled by her success. She has 8.5 million Instagram followers! BTW, my IG is much improved with the help of an app that puts up my photos. If you have Instagram, please follow me! I just need a few more followers to get me to 7K!
This water dance is ridiculous. I hope that the competition doesn’t let them use the water.
OMG Lilliana’s straight jacket performance was one of the best solos ever to happen on this show. And she did it all with no arms! She has to have won first place! Elliana was very good. She will be a strong second to Lillana. But Lily has this. Elliana is such a crybaby. If she can’t take Abby’s critiques she needs to go home. ALDC is not for the weak and sensitive types. Perhaps she would be better with a coach with a different teaching style. She needs to either save her tears for the pillow or go home. She’s going to ruin the group dance if she keeps this drama up.
Elliana came in THIRD. Lilliana won with a PERFECT SCORE. And I cried. WHY AM I CRYING? Then the group dance gets FOURTH. In Pittsburgh. This is not good.
I had a very enjoyable time catching up on this show. It’s difficult for me to recap each week just due to my schedule. But I am hoping you guys are still watching.
