Previously on Dance Moms, studio owner Abby Lee Miller stayed in Pittsburgh, PA with her ailing mother, Maryen Lorrain Miller, while the Abby Lee Dance Company (ALDC) traveled to a competition. The girls danced in tribute to Mrs. Miller, but sadly, their 13-show winning streak came to an end. This week on the Dance Moms midseason finale, season 4, episode 16 titled, "Presenting My New Team," Abby copes with her mother's death, and introduces her new "Junior Select Ensemble" as challengers to the ALDC's "Junior Elite Competition Team." The big surprise though, is that Maddie Ziegler, Abby's star pupil, is moved to the new team. This is the 100th episode of Dance Moms.
