Welcome to Dance Moms Answers. What would you like to know?

  • In late 2012, Christi said that Chloe was dancing 10 to 12 hours per week. In December 2014 (with Studio 19), Chloe said that she was training around 15 hours per week.[1] Chloe has trained the least of any noteworthy dancer that I've seen who has provided information, even when she wasn't taking one of her various long vacations from training. (At the same time, Christi and her fans have always found other excuses for why Chloe had trouble winning, and were always eager to viciously attack and blame other people instead.)
  • In 2012, Nia was dancing around 15 hours per week. (12 to 20 hours seemed typical for ALDC dancers on the show during the first few seasons.) I'm pretty confident that Nia has trained more than that for Season 5, although I'm less confident of exactly how much more.
  • In the summer of 2014, Maddie was training 40 hours per week. (It's probably been a lot less than that on average lately, with DM filming, plus non-summer when schoolwork is expected, plus all the extra things she's been doing. And through Season 3, before homeschooling, I think Maddie trained around 20 hours per week; but for older seasons here, it's the one specific case where I'm relying entirely on memory.)
  • In the fall of 2014, Mackenzie was dancing from 1 p.m. to 9 p.m. on her schooldays (Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays.) I'd guess there's at least one break during those hours; and she didn't say about other days of week.
  • In 2014, Kalani was training between 20 and 30 hours per week.[2]
  • In 2013, JoJo said she was training around 20 hours per week.[3]

  • In 2015, Ava Cota was training 30 hours per week.[5]
  • In early 2015, Talia Seitel was training around 30 hours per week, on average.[6][7] This is about the same time as given by Murrieta Dance Project teammate Keara Nichols.[8]
  • At one point in 2014, Kaeli Ware was dancing around 60 (!) hours per week.[9]
  • In 2014, Sarah Reasons was dancing around 25 hours per week.[10]
  • In 2013, Jade Cloud was training around 15 hours per week.[11][non-working reference]
  • In 2015, Tara Johnson was training at least 20 hours a week.[12][13]
  • In Season 4, Kamryn Beck was training 14 hours per week.[14]
  • In 2012, Nick Dobbs was dancing around 14 hours per week, sometimes more.[15]
  • In 2014, Sarah Hunt was dancing between 20 and 30 hours per week.[16]
  • In 2014, Kaycee Rice was dancing around 20 hours per week.[17]

  • Getting more off topic... but Allison Holker, 14 hours per day, every day... so she's saying 98 hours per week...
