Despite rumors that Lifetime’s hit dancing reality competition series “Dance Moms” may get cancelled amidst legal issues and the departure of talented dancers, it seems like the show will continue on with season 7.
According a “Dance Moms” spoiler site, producers recently announced the series’ return for 13 more episodes. There are also apparently some postings to audition young talents who may be interested in joining the franchise.
The listing for audition dates and locations for participants include several cities around United States including Los Angeles at the Abby Lee Dance Company studio on July 10; Sandy, Utah at the South Towne Exposition Center on July 27; and Sandwich, Massachusetts at the Xtreme Cheer AllStars Gym on Aug. 10.

Coach Abby Lee Miller confirmed that the young dancers have to attend one of her summer meets and greets or master classes in order to have a slot. On a series of posts on Instagram, she revealed the posters for different audition sites, announcing that some of them will have the producers looking out for potential new stars.
According to ShowClix, those who wish to take a class with Miller must be in the age range of 8 to 18 years old. Dancers of all levels, from beginner through advanced expertise, are welcome to show their talents.
Parents have to purchase and pick up a spectator ticket if they want to observe the event, but observers must be adults over the age of 18. Tickets for dancers are priced at $129, while spectator tickets go for $49. Ticket holders will get the opportunity to have a picture taken with Miller.
The network has yet to reveal the premiere date for season 7 of “Dance Moms.”
