This week’s episode was very heavy. A teenage girl that Kelani and her mom knew died by suicide. Teen suicide was an important topic, as well as how to get help. The elite team performed a dance that called attention to the issue and let teens know that they weren’t alone. They brought in people that worked at Teen Line and explained how you could get help. This was the first time my 9 year olds had ever heard of suicide, and to be honest, for a mom who hadn’t discussed yet, I was really okay with how it was covered on Dance Moms.
Each week, Lana, Maya, and Zoe review Dance Moms after watching it together as a family. Check out their thoughts on episode 29 above.
