Abby and Sammy - Dance Moms: Miami Cast
Abby is a stay-at-home mother of four and Sammy is her only daughter currently enrolled at Stars Dance Studio. Abby never studied dance herself; it was Sammy’s older sister who first took dance classes as a young child, which led Sammy on the path to dance.
Abby and Sammy live about an hour north of Miami and commute to Stars Dance Studio. As Abby says, Stars is “known for making winners.” She loves the environment of Miami, including the finer shopping and lifestyle the area has to offer. To Abby, the most important thing in her life is spending time with her family… although she admits her husband hates how much time and money she spends on dance!
