Dance Moms- Chloe

Chloe Lukasiak was my favourite dancer on the TV show Dance Moms. She left the Abby Lee Dance Company (ALDC) at the end of the 4th series/season due to not being able to cope with treatment by the dance teacher Abby Lee Miller.  Now, Abby seems to like to pick on people (although she claims everything she does is for the good of her dancers) but Chloe seemed to become a particular target, largely because Abby doesn't like Chloe's mum Christi. One incident that I thought was particularly nasty was when Abby refused to call Chloe by her name and instead referred to her as "that girl over there" or something similar. It seemed dehumanising to me.

I think that regardless of how you feel about your students' parents, you should never bring it into class and take it out on the students. Last year they showed the UK version of the show (called Dance Mums) with actress, dancer and singer Jennifer Ellison as the teacher. When Jennifer had a problem with one of the mums she got her student's grandma to bring her to classes instead. Abby could have done something similar or just asked Christi not to come in. (To be fair, Jennifer later had a problem with the grandma as well!). Since shows like this are edited, we don't know what's really going on but Abby appeared to treat Chloe horribly at times.

Chloe had been dancing at the ALDC since she was 2. Her favourite types of dance to perform are lyrical and musical theatre. She is now dancing with Studio 19 and has started a feature on YouTube called The Team Chloe Dance Project.

Here's Chloe performing her solo Follow You.

Weekly Music Video

This week's video is Love Lies by  Khalid featuring Normani (from American girl group Fifth Harmony). Khalid (full name Khalid Donnell Robinson) is an American singer who started out by posting music to Soundcloud and then featured on Alina Baraz's single Electric in early 2016. He released his debut single Location in July 2016, which is one of his biggest hits to date. His debut album American Teen came out in March 2017.

Khalid's other singles include Young, Dumb & Broke. Love Lies and OTW with rappers/singers Ty Dolla $ign and 6LACK.

Love Lies was released on Valentine's Day (14th Feb) and is from soundtrack of  the American film Love, Simon. I've only seen the video in the last month though). It's the first single Normani has released outside of Fifth Harmony, who are currently on hiatus.

Teen Mom: Young and Pregnant

Earlier this month I did a post on the new series of Teen Mom UK. At the end of of the post I mentioned that a new show had started in America called Teen Mom: Young and Pregnant. It's now due to start in the UK next week, so here's more about the programme. :)

Teen Mom: Young and Pregnant is the latest in the Teen Mom franchise which started with the 2009 series 16 and Pregnant. It follows 5 girls- Ashely, Brianna, Kayla, Lexi and Jade. Their ages vary from 17 to 21.


Lexi Tatman

The clip of Lexi was the first one I saw. She's 17 and  a cheerleader from Colorado. Her baby son's father is Kyler Lopez and she split-up with him before finding out she was pregnant. When you see Lexi cheerleading while pregnant it reminds me of Farrah Abraham (from Teen Mom OG) in her 16 and Pregnant episode!

Here are Lexi's social media links:

So Sharp: Dance Squad

So Sharp: Dance Squad is an American reality TV series about the University of Louisville Ladybird Dance Team run by Todd Sharp. It's set in Louisville, Kentucky. As you'll know if you follow this blog, I'm a fan of dance reality shows such as Dance Moms and Bring It! So I was interested when So Sharp started in the UK a few weeks ago.

Todd is head coach along with Sheryl Knight, a former Ladybird herself. Todd has also coached the Floyd Central Dazzlers. The team have won 15 national championships so far.

As with the other dance reality shows, there's a lot of drama! Marissa Hall is close to Todd and describes him as like a father to her. She is considered one if the best dancers and her close relationship with Todd rubs some people up the wrong way, particularly Michelle Carpenter. Rose Crombie is one of Marissa's main rivals but according to the Decidr article about the team (see below) they're close. Gabrielle Iannone struggles sometimes with the choreograp…
