    All I have seen of this show has disgusted me. How adults can be aloud to behave the way they do in front of impressionable children is beyond me and some of it could be easily seen as mental abuse. The question is what long term effect is it going to have on these girls growing up believing that treating another human being this way is right thing to do. (Aggressively instead of assertively in a professional manner.

    Lisa. Hush up.

    My mum and I love this programme. These kids aren’t training to be mollycoddled all the way through casting. Yes they’re young and are still young. But they’re dancers. It’s a fun programme with exceptional talent (Maddie Brook and Chloe) (mainly maddie) and an inside view into how hard these mothers and kids work! It should make you happy to see kids with such dedication. Brilliant show. Just hope season 2 is picked up!

    I love this show! I think it is good that they have a hobby that keeps them busy and not hanging round the streets! But what happens if they don’t make it as dancers or get injured and can no longer dance! One of the girls said they miss a lot of school and if they dance every night after school when do they do their homework? Education should come first and dancing second!
