The network isn’t keeping “Dance Moms” fans completely in the dark, though. The synopsis for the next installment, titled “Two Teams, Two Studios Part 1,” has already been released and teases the elite dancers’ new coach. Last viewers saw the cast, the elite moms were planning to leave Abby Lee Miller’s studio in favor of a new coach due to her spending too much time with her mini group. Now, her longtime students will get their weekly choreography from Abby’s competitor, Erin Babbs, instead.
With her elites gone, Abby will attempt to “defend her kingdom” by giving her new and improved mini team three solos ahead of the competition. Still, with her elites dancing for a new coach, Abby will worry about her reputation. “If you fail it’s going to be a direct reflection on me,” Abby warns the minis in the preview.
