Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.

Self centered

I think abby lee is very self centered and arrogant. She is all about showing that she has the ability to do anything and that the credit goes to her without giving any real credit to the kids some of which are really really talented

Terrible Show, poor kids

Failed Parents push their kids to dance . The parents are very passionate about their dancing kids and push them towards perfection, while the kids seem to be unhappy and seem to do it because they get forced. I cant watch it and think this show should be taken off the tv. TERRIBLE
