It’s no secret that the dances performed on Lifetime’s reality-TV series “Dance Moms” are most viewers favorite portions of the program. If you’re a fan of skipping over each new episode’s mom drama simply to catch up on the Abby Lee Dance Company’s latest routines, you’ve come to the right place! Below are six unaired performances to look forward to ahead of their premiere on “Dance Moms” Season 5.
Next week on “Dance Moms,” the elite junior team will perform a “Frozen” inspired number aptly titled “Frozen Together.” The lyrical routine features coach Abby Lee Miller’s go-to student, Maddie Ziegler. Her newest ALDC guest star, JoJo Siwa, is not included in the number. Despite some speculation Nia Frazier will be cut from the routine, the video confirms that she does appear.
Despite the elite junior group's stunning performance -- which concludes with fake snow shooting out of the ceiling -- the number only placed second overall at World-Class Talent Experience in Woodbridge, Virginia, Nov. 1. The routine will make its on-air debut in episode 4, “Bye Bye Pittsburgh.”
This ALDC comtemporary group routine placed first overall at Sheer Talent in Los Angeles, California, Nov. 15. The team also won the Sheer Talent Brilliance Award. While not confirmed, the pre-teen number does appear to be an ode to “The Hunger Games" films. While most of the ALDC girls are in the routine, Nia is not. The number will be shown in episode 6, “Nia Risks It All.”
“The Domino Effect”
The ALDC will perform their award-winning contemporary number “The Domino Effect” in episode 9 of Season 5. The routine placed first overall and first in the teen division at World-Class Talent Experience in Manahawkin, New Jersey, Dec. 6. While footage of the entire dance is not currently available, there is a short clip of the amazing performance posted above.
After performing a string of award-winning contemporary and lyrical routines, the ALDC group will dance to a music theater number titled “Decadent Darlings” in episode 11. While the routine only placed third overall at New York Dance Experience in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, Dec. 21, it's an arguably welcomed change of pace for the elite junior team. A short clip of the number shows the girls sporting 1920s attire and short hairdos.
“Get A Clue”
The ALDC’s group number “Get A Clue,” based off the popular board game, will premiere in episode 12. In the routine, the girls can be seen sporting different color hats and holding various “murder weapons” used in the game such as a candlestick and rope. At the end of the routine, one dancer feigns death. The dance took home first overall at Energy National Dance Competition in Detroit, Michigan, Jan. 10.
“Tell Me What You Want”
If you’re a Spice Girls fan, you may want to mentally prepare yourself for episode 13 of “Dance Moms" Season 5. The ALDC group number “Tell Me What You Want” will star each of the dancers as one of the British pop group's several members. Newcomer JoJo will portray Baby Spice, Kendall Vertes will take on the role of Posh, Mackenzie Ziegler plays Ginger, Nia portrays Scary and Kalani Hilliker is Sporty Spice. Maddie was absent from the routine due to her appearance alongside "Elastic Heart" singer Sia on “Saturday Night Live.” The jazz routine placed second in the teen division and third overall at World-Class Talent Experience in Cleveland, Ohio, Jan. 17.
"Dance Moms" airs Tuesdays at 9 p.m. EST on Lifetime.
