There are two types of people in the world: those who watched Dance Moms for the drama and those who watched it for the dancing.

While the show did sometimes make you question your morals, there was also a lot of beauty within the choreography and the girls’ relationships with each other.

Lifetime / Via

And with 229 episodes, there were truly so MANY good dances on the show.

Abby would probably put me at the bottom of the pyramid for this, but here are the 21 best dances on Dance Moms, ranked:


“Dream on a Star” (Season 1, Episode 10)

Lifetime / Via

Baby Chloe was almost flawless in this dance and she never got enough credit.


“Disappear” (Season 1, Episode 10)

Lifetime / Via

A true testament to Maddie’s skill level at only eight years old.


“Black Swan” (Season 1, Episode 11)

Lifetime / Via

Maddie and Chloe had a million excellent duets, but this one stands out for displaying their raw talent at such young ages.


“The Journey” (Season 7, Episode 10)

Lifetime / Via

By far one of Kendall’s best solos, if not her best.


“Boom Boom” (Season 5, Episode 3)

Lifetime / Via

This is when Kenzie truly started dancing like she could never run out of stamina. Her facials were spot on.


“Bully” (Season 6, Episode 16)

Lifetime / Via

Another Mackenzie solo that proved to everyone she’s the queen of hip-hop out of the group.


“Twilight” (Season 2, Episode 20)

Lifetime / Via

Each dancer had a chance at a mini solo throughout this dance and they all passed with flying colors.


“Maya Angelou” (Season 4, Episode 28)

Grace Faith / Via

Nia is brilliant at acting in her performances and this solo showed off her strength, grace and acting abilities.


“Beautiful Bizarre” (Season 5, Episode 23)

Lifetime / Via

IDK how they flipped their hair so much without getting dizzy, but bravo. The moves were also unlike any of their other dances.


“Sink or Swim” (Season 5, Episode 23)

Lifetime / Via

Kenz placed first AND beat Maddie’s tap solo so this was an iconic moment.


“Stomp the Yard” (Season 5, Episode 2)

Lifetime / Via

Another group dance that stood out for its ~unique~ costume, theme and choreography.


“Amber Alert” (Season 4, Episode 31)

Lifetime / Via

All of the girls’ acting was stellar in this performance, but Mackenzie was a stand out.


“Happiness” (Season 4, Episode 25)

Lifetime / Via

Probably the most quintessential “Maddie” dance and she executed it flawlessly.


“The Investment” (Season 5, Episode 27)

Lifetime / Via

This was not an Abby Lee choreographed dance and it shows. Kalani demonstrated her insane flexibility and strength.


“Bittersweet Charity” (Season 6, Episode 9)

Lifetime / Via

Personally, one of my favorite dances this group has ever done. They made complete use of the prop, they sold their characters and they look like legit showgirls.


“Two Sapphires” (Season 4, Episode 7)

Lifetime / Via

Their costumes are beautiful and they are just so incredibly in synch.


“The Atlantic” (Season 6, Episode 17)

Lifetime / Via

Honestly, one of the most beautiful group dances they’ve ever done. Their costumes were simple — so their dancing could speak for itself.


“Boss Ladies” (Season 6, Episode 18)

Lifetime / Via

Ok, well obviously this one had to make the list because the group was challenged with a hip-hop routine and were complete FIRE.


“Say Something, Say Anything” (Season 7, Episode 10)

Lifetime / Via

Kalani’s technique remained consistently amazing throughout the show and this winning solo is a prime example.


“The Hostage” (Season 6, Episode 18)

Lifetime / Via

Maddie’s final solo on Dance Moms and also one of her best.


“The Waiting Room” (Season 5, Episode 31)

Lifetime / Via

Abby Lee loves a heart-wrenching, drama-filled dance and this one is no exception. The part where Kalani walks across the chairs gives me literal chills. It’s just so good.
