"Wild Wild West Coast, Part 1" is the seventh episode of the fifth season of Dance Moms. It first aired February 17th, 2015.


It's the ALDC's last week in LA and the Moms' patience with Abby has grown thin due to the lack of opportunities for every girl except Abby's favorite. While Maddie is away, guest starring on TV's "Austin and Ally," Abby brings in two swing dancers who not only take away her time and attention but also threaten the girls' chance at their biggest audition to date, a music video for internet sensation and pop star MattyB. Abby's job as a manager is put to the test when one of her star pupils gets offered the lead.[2]
