On season 7 of Dance Moms, Abby Lee Miller has made it her goal to bring the ALDC back to its glory days by winning more titles and first place trophies. She plans on doing this by cutting some of the Minis and bringing in new girls to dance with the Junior Elites.
In a new Instagram post, Abby announced that she achieved her mission and then some. However, she may have also included some shocking news about the future of Dance Moms.

Recently, Brynn, Kalani, Kendall, Nia and newbie Camryn competed in Nationals as the ALDC’s Junior Elite competition team. Abby posted a video of the awards ceremony on Instagram, and it looks as though the girls did, in fact, win first prize for their group number.
Of course, fans were ecstatic that the girls won, but it is the video’s caption that has them all talking. In the post, Abby writes a nostalgic message, reflecting on all that Dance Moms has done for her and all she has given to the Lifetime show. Many fans reading the caption feel as though Abby is either confirming that her time on the show is over, or that it may actually be done for good.
“[A] bittersweet Victory! Incredible job girls! 5 years of my life, seven seasons on TV in 130 Countries – I did my best for Lifetime and gave my all to the production of Dance Moms! Thank you for the many wonderful opportunities and the valuable lessons I learned,” she writes in the caption.
I thought this routine was amazing, a bittersweet Victory!

If the show is truly coming to an end after season 7, it may be due to Abby’s legal troubles. In 2015, Abby was indicted on 20 counts of fraud by allegedly hiding over $755,000 made from her reality shows. At the time of her indictment, Abby was facing a possible five years in jail and $5 million fine.
Since then, Abby pleaded guilty to the charges. As of now, she will be sentenced on Friday, Jan. 20, 2017, according to Deadline.
