Behind locked up isn’t stopping Abby Lee Miller from continuing her business.

The “Dance Moms” alum has revealed her West Coast studio will be hosting auditions for her ALDC (Abby Lee Dance Company) competition team at in Santa Monica, California, on Thursday. The only problem? Abby is due to start her year-long prison sentence on Wednesday.

“Nationals rocked and so did the ALDC LA studio,” Abby posted to Instagram, revealing the times and dates for her competition team auditions of the 2017-18 season. According to the dance coach’s post, the auditions will take place on Thursday and be lead by her former “Dance Moms” co-choreographer Gianna Martello and Guy “Mr. Guy” Amir .

With Abby’s ongoing financial problems, it shouldn’t come as a surprise the classes leading up to the auditions are not free. Interested students will have to cough up $20 to take a class with Gianna prior to the 6 p.m. tryouts (or $30 for both classes) which, of course, Abby will not be attending.

A rep for Martello declined to comment to International Business Times about the event.

The Instagram post in question has since been flooded with comments from “Dance Moms” fans, some posting their desire to audition and others wishing Abby luck behind bars.

“You are strong and nobody will ever take that from you. This year will fly by, like most years do,” one fan wrote. “I know tomorrow is going to be tough and the next year. You will get through it! You are so very strong, much more than I will ever be. Just remember you are an inspiration and many look up to you, we all know you will be okay. Good luck! You will get through it!” reads another comment.

READ: Why Abby Lee Miller Is Going To Prison

Abby is due to enter FCI Victorville facility near her home in San Bernardino, California, on Wednesday afternoon. Though she was sentenced to one year and one day in prison by a federal judge in Pittsburgh in May, it’s likely she will not have to serve her entire sentence for committing bankruptcy fraud. It has been reported that Abby could be transferred to a halfway house 10 months into her sentence or be let out after eight months for good behavior.

While the audition announcement may come as a shock to some, Abby has made it clear behind locked up won’t stop her from working. In May, she admitted she planned to treat her prison sentence like an acting job. “I’m just going to pretend I’m shooting a movie and we’re on set and I’m there for 10 months, and that’s how it’s going to be,” Abby told ABC. Abby has also let it slip she may go on tour after her release.

Of course, TV could also be in her future. After parting from “Dance Moms” in April after accusing producers of treating her unfairly on set, Abby hinted at a new spinoff with her younger students.

While Abby’s supporters will have to wait some time to see if she ever returns to the small screen, her former students are due to make their debut on the new season of “Dance Moms” next month. Season 7 of the hit docuseries kicks off on Lifetime Aug. 1.
