“Dance Moms” coach Doyney, Abby Lee Miller, saw her plans for a new dance show canceled on Lifetime Friday following accusations of racism by a former “Dance Moms” cast member. Miller accepted his words and expressed his regret.
Miller, who was released from federal prison in 2018 after a fraud conviction, was preparing a new show, “Abby’s Virtual Dance Off”, on Lifetime later this year. Now it’s over.

The series was expected to air this summer, which first reported the news. Also, Miller will not return to Dance Moms if the series is renewed for season 9, the outlet reports.
According to a description on the Lifetime website, the show will feature Miller, who is “exploring some of the most talented dancers in the country. Do you have to impress this top dance mom trainer?”
A decision has yet to be made on whether to take the ninth season of “Dance Moms,” not including Miller or his dance company in a year, a person with knowledge of the situation tells sources.
On Thursday, Miller publicly apologized to Adriana Smith and her daughter, Cameron Smith, after Adriana accused Miller of exhibiting racist behavior towards her during the filming of Season 8 of the Lifetime series.
In a statement to our sources Smith responded:
It is about the potential impact that she dances.” And the negative is in the future. Conservative influence on youth and aspiring dancers of color. The first account exposed.”
Another mother of dance mothers, Camille Bridges, has also called Miller an E! The news that he feels that his daughter Kemrin was mistreated by her race. “[Abby] tried to make Kemrin look poor and on a scholarship there. I immediately closed it,” Bridges said. He didn’t acknowledge his work with black choreographers. He hired Camry constantly… It was a painful experience having someone in Unwanted.”
