Abby Lee Miller Confirms She Has Sold Her Studio
In a video recently posted to her Instagram, Miller confirmed to her fans that she’d sold her famous dance studio in Pittsburgh. She said it was a “very bittersweet” decision for her to make and revealed that the studio would be developed into a daycare center. Miller’s studio produced dance stars like Maddie Ziegler, Kendall Vertes, and Chloe Lukasiak.
The New York Post previously reported on the studio’s sale, claiming Miller sold the property for $300k. In her Instagram video, Miller said, “I didn’t sell my name. I didn’t sell my brand. I didn’t sell my life’s work. I sold brick, mortar, cinder blocks, and an amazing dance floor that is still in mint condition.”
Abby Lee Miller Says Times Have Changed
In her video, Miller also revealed why she’d decided to let go of the studio, which was reportedly purchased in 1993. The reality star said she realized that “times have changed,” and she’s no longer just a dance instructor in Pittsburgh thanks to the fame that her show “Dance Moms” brought to her career.
Miller continued, “I’m all over the world teaching. It was time and I’m very proud to say that my studio, my building…is going to be a very great business. It’s going to somebody that needed it, somebody, that wanted it. Not another dance teacher.”
The dance instructor briefly reminisced about the good times, the heartbreaking moments, and all the winning students in her studio with their “trophies and crowns and banners.” She said, “I loved every moment in that studio—even some of the rough ones and the heartbreaking ones. They were important to me… All good things come to an end.”
The Studio Rose To Fame On ‘Dance Moms’
Miller’s “Abby Lee Dance Company” rose to fame on Lifetime’s “Dance Moms,” which ran from 2011 to 2019. The show featured Miller teaching young dancers between the ages of 6 and 16 while managing their outspoken and very competitive parents.
Despite the sale, Miller is allowing the show’s fans to have a piece of the studio through public action. She wrote in the video’s caption, “While I wish I could hold onto every piece of history in that studio, it is just impossible and I want to share as much as I can with YOU the fans, family, and supporters of the Abby Lee Dance Company.”
Miller added, “Follow @thecleanoutkrew and stay tuned for more information on the upcoming online auction available worldwide!”
