Abby Lee Miller's dance studio is 20 minutes down the road from where I grew up, and my hometown pride has diminished slightly since forcing myself to watch her terror children and create monsters out of moms. But, the whole thing has started a Dance Moms craze, and if you haven't seen Dance Moms: Miami, I'm afraid you are behind.
This weekend the Miami show stars Angel Armas, Victor Smalley, Lucas Triana, and Jessi Kennedy will be in the Chicagoland area for a convention and meet & greet. A free public meet & greet will be held this Friday at the Renaissance Chicago North Shore Hotel in Northbrook, and dancers ages five and up are invited to master dance classes on Saturday and Sunday at Center Stage Academy in Highland Park.
