Dance moms: Where would we be without them? We all know how much support and help they give us—in addition to loads of love. Here are 10 reasons real-life dance moms are undeniably the best.


They'll Drive You Everywhere

Need a ride from school to the house...and then to the studio...and then back home? Mom's got you covered.

They'll Make Sure You're on Time

Speaking of driving you everywhere, you can count on dance moms to make sure you're never, ever late for dance.

They Always Have Snacks

Because dance moms know that pre-rehearsal hanger is a real—and scary—thing.

They'll Help You Look Fabulous 

Need a costume adjustment? No problem. Dance moms always seem to have a needle and thread handy.

They're Up on the Latest Drama

While you're in rehearsal, they're spilling the tea with their other dance mom friends.

You Can Talk to Them About Everything

Whenever you need to talk about something serious, dance moms are there to listen and offer advice.

They'll Fight for You

Having trouble with someone at the studio? Frustrated by casting? Your dance mom has your back.

They're the Best at Giving Pep Talks

When the nerves kick in right before competition, dance moms are there to boost your confidence.

They Speak the Truth

Sometimes you just need someone to tell it like it is—and dance moms know exactly how to do that.

They'll Support You, No Matter What

Through studio drama and forgotten choreo, costume mishaps and competition disappointments, dance moms will support and love us for our entire lives.
