'Dance Moms' gets the 'Flashdance' treatment
Lifetime teases its hit show's third season with a parody
Countless parodies of "Flashdance" have been done since the iconic film first thrilled fans nearly 30 years ago.
But the "Dance Moms" version, which hit the web this week to tease the show's Season 3 return in January, makes sense. For starters, like the flick, the addictive Lifetime reality show is set in Pittsburgh. Don't underestimate those steel-town girls.
And then of course there's the hilariously maniacal Abby Lee Miller. So Michael Sembello's "Maniac" could not be more perfect. Hopefully for fans, Season 3 is just as rewarding. At least we know, thanks to the video, Kelly Hyland and most of the other moms are returning, allaying fans' fears that they wouldn't. Here's the video:
More than anything, it's about the girls, who give it their all as they channel their inner and outer Alexes (Jennifer Beals) with leg warmers and curly black wigs. Hanna would be so proud.
Season 3 of "Dance Moms" debuts Tuesday, Jan. 1, at 9 p.m. ET/PT on Lifetime.
Frankly, I don't know how on earth those girls pick up what she is teaching. The one and only time I watched the show she snapped at a child for not turning and pointing her foot "this way". She was screaming and calling her an idiot, and all I could think of was that her leg was so big and covered up with so much loose fabric, how on earth could the child tell?
I'm a former big girl who now knows a little something about nutrition and exercise (just enough to be dangerous :-D) . I don't understand how she can move as much as one should to teach dance and choreograph numbers and still be that big. She must seriously binge at night if she's not burning off anything, or she's a really lazy teacher.
