Abby Lee Miller puts her students to work! The “Dance Moms” star revealed she had two of her students do some “manual labor” over the weekend amid filming for Season 7 of the Lifetime series.
When they’re not brushing up on their technique or learning their weekly routines, it appears Kendall Vertes and Kalani Hilliker are doing Abby’s dirty work!
“I made [Kendall] and [Kalani] do a little manual labor today! Lol!” Abby posted to Instagram Sunday. The post included a shot of her elite junior students handling several household items, including pillows and towels, while trying to maneuver them into the trunk of a car.
Abby’s post came one day after her students competed in the latest Season 7 competition in Panorama City, California. Photos from their appearance at Dream Dance Challenge show the elites and remaining minis preparing to compete in what appears to be a “Killer Clown” themed routine, titled “Clowning Around.” One “Dance Moms” spoiler site reports the dance was based on news reports about “‘clowns’ that are running rampant in cities trying to kidnap people and take them to the woods, attack them or just scare them.”
While viewers will have to wait until next season to see the horror piece, Abby did share a candid snap of Lilliana Ketchman sporting her spooky face makeup. “I think my cute little mini has been CLOWNIN’ AROUND with those older girls!” she captioned the shot.
Elite team member Brynn Rumfallo got in on the fun by sharing a shot of her and her teammates in full costume. “My friends are clowns,” she said of the pic.
Abby also teased the solos competed at the event. After Nia Sioux performed, Abby gushed about her longtime student online. “Our friendship started when [Nia] was only 3!” she shared. “Proud of this kid today!” Official scores and videos of Nia’s solo are not available yet, but Abby did post a snippet of newcomer Camryn Bridges “captivating” lyrical routine.
As the “Dance Moms” cast continues filming new episodes, Lifetime is airing Season 6 installments. The next episode will see the potential leave of dancer JoJo Siwa after Abby gifts her a particularly challenging ballet duet. “I’m literally freaking out ... I really have to nail it,” JoJo says in the promo for “JoJo Is A No Show.”
Catch up with the cast of “Dance Moms” on Tuesdays at 9 p.m. EDT on Lifetime.
