About the Author
Born in Pennsylvania in 1966, Abby Lee Miller inherited a love of dance from her mom; she took classes at her mother’s studio since childhood. Miller started her own company at 14 and by 1980 had her own studio. But with Lifetime’s show Dance Moms she became a star in her own right rather than just training aspiring ones. The series, which has now had three seasons, follows Miller, several of her students and their diva parents.
Being exposed to dance her whole life, it’s no surprise that Abby Lee Miller wanted to follow in her mother’s footsteps. Miller’s mom, Maryen Lorrain, a 50-year member of the Dance Masters of America, ran several dance studios before settling down with George L. Miller in the Pittsburgh suburbs. They had their daughter on September 21, 1966. As a young girl, she studied dance at her mom’s studio in Penn Hills, Pennsylvania. While she enjoyed numerous other activities, including Girl Scouts, ski club, clarinet lessons and charm school, Miller’s primary passion was dance, especially competitions. Not a fan of performing herself, she opted for teaching early on. She founded the Abby Lee Dance Company while still a teenager. In 1980 she opened her own dance studio and has taught 3,000 to 4,000 students to date.
