Dance Moms: Miami was a spinoff of the Lifetime reality show Dance Moms. It premiered on April 3, 2012 and received mixed-to-negative reviews. The show follows Victor Smalley and Angel Armas, the co-owners of Stars Dance Studio in Miami, FL. Smalley and Armas have been co-owners of the studio since it opened in 2007, and often juggle handling Victor's mother and Stars Dance Studio manager Mayra Smalley's demands and that of the competitive dance moms at the studio. In September 2012, it was announced that Dance Moms: Miami was cancelled. 'The List', much like 'The Pyramid' in the original Dance Moms is used to show the moms and the dancers whom both Angel and Victor feel did the best and who needs to improve. The list changes every week.
