Jeanette Cota is the mother of dancer Ava. Ava was once a student of Abby Lee Miller (2012-2014), the famous/infamous dance instructor and star of Dance Moms. Like many “dance moms,” Jeanette and Abby didn’t see eye-to-eye. So Jeanette took her daughter out of ALDC and joined the Candy Apples, which Jeanette just took over from Cathy Stein.
Jeanette isn’t just a pretty face with long legs. In addition to being a professional model, Jeanette was a dancer, too. In 2005 she opened her own dance studio, The Broadway Dance Academy in Fenton, Michigan where she lives with her family. Think Jeanette has what it takes to go against Abby? Dance Moms airs Tuedays at 8pm and 9pm on Lifetime.
