Set in Liverpool, Dance Mums follows British national treasure Jennifer Ellison and her Dance Academy girls as they compete against the nation's best in the competitive world of dance. Dance Mums follows a group of passionate and incredibly talented children in pursuit of their dreams, accompanied by their ambitious, driven and straight-talking mums in pursuit of trophies. This show brings unfiltered passion, jaw-dropping talent and great British humor together as Jennifer, her girls, and their mums compete for greatness.[1]

Origins and creation of the show

  • The series is produced by ITV's "factual arm" Shiver,[2][3] rather than Collins Avenue.
  • The show was planned to go into production of episodes sometime after Jennifer Ellison gave birth, who was nine months pregnant in early September 2014.
  • There was originally to be eight families[4][5] in Season 1, however only seven ended up being featured.
  • During an interview on Liverpool local radio show on City Talk 105.9 , Jennifer talked about how she has not trained the girls on the show and has never claimed to have trained them. She put together the team, through auditioning the girls, as she wanted to give kids from Liverpool the opportunity to get their names out.
  • Filming of Season 2 began March 7, 2015 with auditions for dancers to appear on the show.[6][7]

The Pyramid

Like Dance Moms, the British version of the show features a pyramid system. The pyramid is used to show who performed the best and the worst each week.
