What happened to Abby from Dance Moms? Updates on the Star of “Dance Moms” as Other Cast Members Reunite

Despite the fact that “Dance Moms” aired for almost five years, fans of the reality show can reminisce about its cast members by watching the two-hour Lifetime special “Dance Moms: The Reunion” on May 1.

JoJo Siwa, Chloe Lukasiak, Kendall Vertes, Kalani Hilliker, and sisters Brooke and Paige Hyland are among the dancers that reunited with their mothers to discuss their complex recollections of their time spent as Abby Lee Dance Company students.

One of the most demanding people on reality TV, Abby Lee Miller, was the dance school’s infamously strict director.

Former “Dance Moms” students of Miller express gratitude that she did not attend the reunion.

In an interview on April 30, 2024, several of Miller’s former “Dance Moms” students revealed they were grateful Miller didn’t participate in Lifetime’s new special “Dance Moms: The Reunion,” which aired on May 1.

“I think it was best having it just be us girls and being able to open up to each other. None of us could have done so if she had been there, in Kalani Hilliker’s opinion. She added that she herself would not have been “as open and vulnerable” if Miller had been on the reunion set.

Paige Hyland, whose mother Kelly was arrested on Season Four of the show for striking Miller in the face during an argument, stated that if Miller had been there, she would not have agreed to take part in the reunion.

“The whole idea was to create a safe environment where we could be vulnerable and think things through,” the woman said, “but it seems like we would have been afraid to speak up.”

JoJo Siwa and Kalani Hilliker said they were still in contact with Abby while promoting the Dance Moms reunion in April 2024; however, Chloe Lukasiak, Kendall Vertes, Brooke Hyland, and Paige Hyland disclosed they were not.
