'Dance Moms': Lifetime Orders Miami Spinoff

Lifetime is taking "Dance Moms" to the South with new dancers, new routines and, of course, new drama.

"Dance Moms: Miami," the new six-episode series, will follow instructors Victor Smalley and Angel Armas and their group of male and female dancers at Miami's Stars Dance Studio.

Lifetime describes the instructors as fiercely dedicated, something they expect their young students to be. As is the case with the original "Dance Moms," which is set in less luxurious locale of Pittsburgh, expect some very passionate mothers.

"'Dance Moms' quickly became a stand-out hit for Lifetime last year that we knew would be perfect to build out and franchise into other series," Lifetime's president Nancy Dubuc said in a statement. "'Dance Moms: Miami' captures the same energy, passion and conflict between an equally intriguing cast of instructors, amazing dancers and moms who are 100 percent dedicated to become the best at what they do."

When the second season of "Dance Moms" premiered earlier in January 2012, 2.5 million viewers tuned in, according to the network. "Dance Moms" follows Abby Lee Miller, the head instructor at Abby Lee Dance Company, and a set of moms and their children who attend her studio.

"Dance Moms" airs Tuesdays at 9 p.m. EST on Lifetime.
