"JoJo Is a No Show" is the twenty-ninth episode of the sixth season of Dance Moms. It first aired October 18, 2016.


When tragic news from Kira and Kalani's hometown hits the ALDC, Abby choreographs one of her most emotional dances ever to help bring awareness to teen suicide. The minis try to make a comeback with their group number after being benched last week. JoJo and Kendall are assigned a difficult ballet duet that tests JoJo beyond her limits, leading to the most dramatic turn of the season.[2]
