Cirque du Solos is the ninth episode of the first season of Abby's Ultimate Dance Competition. It aired on December 4, 2012.


With only four dancers remaining in the competition, the moms have to do whatever it takes to ensure their child makes it to the final three. This week the girls not only have to worry about perfecting their solos, but they're also doing a complicated and grueling circus inspired group dance.
