On the Dance Moms episode ‘Nia & Kendall Face Off’, dance instructor Abby Lee Miller shows a renewed interest in her longtime student Nia Frazier. “I do want Nia to succeed to the level of a Maddie [Ziegler],” says Abby, but “it’s going to take a lot of tough love.” While Nia’s mother Holly says she’s happy about Abby showing Nia more attention and giving her more challenges, Holly also admits “I’m incredibly nervous.”
To help ease her concerns Holly brings Nia’s manager to the ALDC studio, which doesn’t go well. In a sneak preview (see below), Abby is seen walking out while Holly calls her “a coward”. Dance Moms airs Tuesdays at 9pm on Lifetime.
