To say that I wasn’t excited to see Elliana Walmsley return in Dance Moms 8×07 would simultaneously be a lie and the understatement of the year. The kid is easily one of the best dancers—if not the best dancer—to ever represent Abby Lee Miller and the ALDC (even if she does get her training literally everywhere else, from Michelle Latimer’s to Master Ballet Academy, to whatever qualifies as the dance gods). So, that’s great for anyone (me) who likes to see great dancing; but then there’s the drama that she doesn’t deserve and, quite frankly, the waste of time that she could be spending getting even better.
…and then there’s Yolanda Walmsley and her ever-growing, ever-manufactured (we’ll get to that later, folks) mutual insanity with Stacey Ketchman. Oh, and there was a dance competition in Dance Moms 8×07, too.
Check out our Dance Moms 8×07 recap for all the drama that, unlike us, you might have been lucky enough to miss.

Dance Moms 8×06 was the new ALDC’s first chance to prove that the moms’ constant whining about Brady Farrar’s (supposedly undeserved) special attention was actually deserved. Rather than embrace the opportunity to shine, though, the remaining team members…Well. Full spoilers: They didn’t do so well.
Joanne and Gianina Paolantonio had the same conceited reaction to a jazz solo as they did earlier this season (because that worked out so well for them before); and while Abby Lee Miller was busy trying to put that fire out, there was also the problem of Lilliana Ketchman’s rocky start to the season. Rounding out the featured roles for Dance Moms 8×06, Sarah Georgiana had her first shot at a solo.
Did Sarah crack under pressure? Did Lilly? And can the ALDC hack it without Brady Farrar? Check out our Dance Moms 8×06 recap to find out!

Abby Lee Miller had her hands full in Dance Moms 8×03. Not only did she create a very political group dance, which focused on the frequent “thoughts and prayers” response to mass shootings; but she also had to deal with some rather bratty behavior from Joanne and Gianina Paolantonio. After beginning Dance Moms season 8 with two big wins, the ALDC needed to keep up their winning streak. But with Lilliana Ketchman as the lead in a very serious group dance after some early-season struggles, did the team take on too much in week three?
