Season 1Edit

Season 1 dancers and moms

Season 1 of AUDC premiered on October 9th, 2012. The show premiered with a casting special where the final 14 dancers competed to get into the competition. 12 dancers and their mothers moved on and competed weekly at the L.A theater. The prize was $100,000 and a scholarship to the Joffrey Ballet School in New York. Brianna Haire, 13, was declared the winner on December 11, 2012.

Season 2Edit

During season 1 of AUDC, at the the end of some of the last few episodes, Abby advertised an opportunity to apply for Abby's Ultimate Dance Competition. The official website for AUDC currently has a casting tab opened. Season 2 aired on September 3rd, 2013 with 11 dancers competing for $100,000 and a scholarship to the Joffrey Ballet School. McKaylee True, 13, was declared the Season 2 winner.

Season 3Edit

Season 3 has yet to be officially announced. On the Dance Moms Reunion: Hurricane Abby, Abby mentioned that along with her nationwide tour to cast dancers for the ALDC, she was also casting for Abby's Ultimate Dance Competition, which indicates that Season 3 will possibly happen after Season 4 of Dance Moms (which did not happen). Additionally the casting tab on the Abby's Ultimate Dance Competition website is still open however it never closed even after Season 2 was done casting.

Abby revealed in an interview that AUDC season 3 was put on hold for her new show "Abby's Studio Rescue" so it is unknown if the show will return for a 3rd season.

Concidering Abby's Studio Rescue's ratings and cancellation, a season 3 may be quite possible for the show. If this does happen, then the 3rd season will probably not be filmed until summer 2015 as AUDC films only during the summer.
