I bet it was Gianna's decision to use a lighter on stage and ruin the performance. But of course you'd blame Abby. You can't just admit that Abby's the heart and soul of the studio and the reason those kids do so well.

You literally just said that Abby was the one who chose the costumes so is it Gia or Abby who’s in charge of the dances because you’re contradicting yourself. When the person you’re defending makes a horrible decision (having children dance on stage with a lighter) you can’t blame it on the other person and then credit said person with another decision about the situation (the costumes of the dance.)

Abby is not ‘the heart and soul of her studio’. She’s a horrific dance teacher. She also really doesn’t do much teaching/choreographing at her studio. She has four other main teachers/choreographers that do much of the teaching. She also has a couple of student choreographers that attend the studio and help out some. She really doesn’t have much to do with her studio tbh.

Abby is also not ‘the reason those kids dance so well’. She has completely destroyed all of the children on dance moms self esteem and for some their mental state. Kelly herself said that Brooke held back when she was dancing because of Abby. Paige forgot her dance on stage because she was so terrified of Abby watching her in the audience. Christi has also said that Chloe dances better without Abby psyching her out before she goes on stage. The girls would do a lot better without Abby coaching them.

Also tell me Abby does not fit these definitions: abuser — to use wrongly or improperly; misuse: to abuse one’s authority.

- to treat in a harmful, injurious, or offensive way

to speak insultingly, harshly, and unjustly to or about
