Season 6, Episode 19 – “Abby’s New Beginning” (Sept. 6)
After a season of legal battle woes, losing her beloved student Maddie Ziegler to stardom and starting a new company in Los Angeles, Abby will start anew in the premiere. Despite her desire to turn over a new leaf, mom Jessalynn Siwa’s favoritism allegations regarding newcomer Brynn Rumfallo (who Abby’s choreographer recently hailed as the show’s next big thing) will become a major source of tension among the elite junior team.
The season begins with a newly motivated Abby Lee promising to no longer overlook her remaining dancers now that her star, Maddie, is gone. Abby assigns Brynn and Kendall [Vertes] head-to-head duets with boy partners and Brynn struggles with the pressure. When Jess calls out Abby's favoritism for Brynn, Ashlee [Allen] hits her boiling point.
Season 6, Episode 20 – “Nia & Kendall Face Off” (Sept. 13)
Abby will pit two of her longtime dancers against one another and if that wasn’t enough drama, the moms won’t be happy with the elite team’s Madonna-themed number. Holly Frazier will also be upset when she gets an inkling Abby may have a secret agenda for her daughter, off-Broadway star Nia Frazier.
Abby challenges Nia and Kendall with tough head-to-head trios but the group tribute to Madonna leaves the moms wanting more. Holly suspects Abby has a hidden agenda for Nia but, when she brings Nia's manager to the studio to investigate, her strategy backfires. When talk of the girls' technique erupts at competition, Abby abandons the team.
Season 6, Episode 21 – “Return of the Minis” (Sept. 20)
The elite team will be under pressure when Abby assigns them another high-stakes number (this time in honor of Prince) and announces the return of her mini team. To add some more fuel to the tension, she’ll also assign her older students battling duets.
The minis are back for the first time this season and the elites question if Abby can hold true to her promise of new beginnings. Abby challenges the minis with a beauty pageant themed dance where she will crown one mini queen of the routine. The elites perform a tribute to Prince but feel the pressure to do him justice and fear they will fail to win with another tribute dance. To add to the chaos, Abby assigns two duets: JoJo [Siwa] and Brynn vs. Kendall and Nia. When Nia falls ill, Kendall is once again left without a partner.
Season 6, Episode 22 – “Mother’s Day Meltdown” (Sept. 27)
The drama between the mini moms and the elite moms will come to a head in this episode. Abby will get emotional when she assigns her younger students a dance in honor of her late mother, Maryen Lorrain Miller. When the dance moms “get physical” (as teased in the trailer above) they will give Abby an ultimatum.
It’s Mother’s Day and an emotional Abby tasks the minis with their first lyrical routine to honor her mother. The elites are put to the test when their moms make a shocking decision that leaves them without a group dance for competition. Tensions between the teams get physical and the moms give Abby an ultimatum.
