Abby’s Ultimate Dance Competition returns tonight for its 5th episode of season 2 and the focus of tonight’s show is “Anything Can Happen.” If there’s one statement that’s truer than true in the dance world, it really is the fact that anything can happen. And when you’re in the presence of Evil Dance Overlord Abby, we think that’s especially true. If you missed last week’s episode, be sure to check out our LIVE recap of the show, which focused on “Vegas Show Stoppers” — CLICK HERE for recap.
The brief episode summary says the following: “Abby decides to mix things up with the theme for the week being “Unconventional.” Anything can, and will happen, starting with the remaining dancers battling Abby in a martial arts challenge. The winner’s mom gets to decide which dancers land in the bottom three, leading to new fights and some surprise allegiances. To complicate matters further, each dance involves a giant, and sometimes unpredictable, prop.”
