You Have Questions About Abby Lee Miller and Cathy Stein From Dance Moms? Less Than Reality Has Answers!

After looking into what some readers are searching online about Dance Moms, I gathered some information about Abby Lee Miller and Cathy Stein, stars of Lifetime's Dance Moms, and packed it into this post.

Abby Lee:

Abby Lee Miller formed the Abby Lee Dance Company at the age of fourteen. Many professional dancers have graduated from her school. Abby estimates that she's taught as many as 4,000 students throughout her career. Abby's mother Maryen Lorrain Miller was a dance instructor, and Abby followed in her footsteps. In fact, Abby's studio used to be the Maryen Lorrain Dance Studio.

Abby's students have appeared on Broadway, at Walt Disney World, Disneyland Japan, Radio City Music Hall, and at other national and international venues.

Abby does not like to be onstage, which she says helps her to be a better dance teacher. She understands dance, but has no desire to compete with her students. This was confirmed when Cathy invited Abby to dance onstage and Abby declined, although she said she couldn't dance for insurance reasons.

Abby Lee's website can be found at AbbyLeeDanceCompany.com. The confusing part of this is the website says the dance school is the 'Reign Dance' company. I wonder if the Abby Lee team is just the competition side of the house, whereas the Reign Dance school encompasses everything. The Reign Dance company also has another website, ReignDanceProductions.com.

Thinking of sending your kids to Abby's dance school? A mom on the show stated that she pays $16,000 a year for dance lessons for her daughter, so I hope you have some serious cash!

Abby's not all about being mean. She states in one episode that her mom is nice to everyone but her, which could explain where some of her attitude came from. In a later episode, she broke down and showed sadness when she heard her mom was in the hospital but she couldn't visit due to competitions.

While Abby focuses strongly on dance, she does want her students to have some fun. She and the Dance Moms girls visited Abby's mom, and Abby encouraged them to play games in the pool. She also took the girls out for ice cream in Las Vegas.

Abby is single. She is not married.

Abby Lee's Facebook account can be found here.

Cathy:

Cathy's full name is Cathy Jean Nesbitt-Stein. Her husband, Mike Stein, is an insurance adjuster. Cathy is a fan of Victorian themed things, Easter and bunnies.

Cathy's Facebook account can be found here.

Cathy owns Candy Apples Dance Studios, and the website for the company can be found here. I am not sure if the correct name is "Candy Apple's" or "Candy Apples" because the main header calls the studio "Candy Apple's", whereas other graphics say "Candy Apples".

The site claims that the school is "Stark County’s ONLY #1 Dance Studio!" which would be fine, if not a redundant statement. If the school is number 1, then it doesn't need to be stated that it's the only one with the honor. Otherwise, it wouldn't be number one or it would be tied for first place.

Candy Apples dance school is clearly different than the Abby Lee Dance Company program. The website advertises that the dance school features fun dance classes at affordable prices, whereas Abby focuses on serious dancing at high prices. It seems like Candy Apple dance school provides a fun environment that helps kids build self esteem, which is a principle that Cathy believes in.

Cathy's daughter Vivi-anne's full name is Vivi-Anne Quinn Stein. This information can be found on the Candy Apples website. To answer the heavily asked question about Vivi-anne being adopted, she is adopted from Guatemala.

Vivi seems like she's just not that into dancing. In fact, when asked if she'd like to be a professional dancer, she said she'd rather teach. She also likes science and aspires to be a doctor.

Cathy certainly makes it seem like she's been planted on Dance Moms.  In an interview, she stated some information that makes it looked like she was being cast for the show, rather than already being a party of Abby Lee's dance school.

Q. Were you a big reality-show viewer before doing this?

A.
I was not. I think the biggest one I watched was “John and Kate Plus 8.” But when this opportunity came up, I decided to go for it and grab the gusto. You know the drama comes with the territory. It was a crazy experience.

Vivi-Anne was adopted from Guatemala (perhaps after being kidnapped by an group who were stealing kids to sell to Americans)

Thanks, Wynnster!

Wynnster, are you freakin' kidding me? Not every kid from Guatemala has been kidnapped you dumbass twit.

Wynnster said...

Not ALL of them, but enough that the US Government has stopped all international adoptions from Guatemala, because so many of the Guatemalan children who were adopted by Americans were indeed kidnapped from their parents then sold to shady adoption brokers.

Just a thought I can't seem to get out of my head...
I find a few things suspicious about Cathy and Vivi's arrival at Abby's studio right when filming started.
* Competition teams are typically comprised of dancers with similar skill levels, and Vivi does not seem to be a good fit.
* Cathy drives 2 hours (one way) to the studio.
* It's obvious that Cathy likes the spotlight and keeps the drama going.
Maybe Cathy contacted the producers with the show idea, but they decided to feature a more well-known studio instead of "Candy Apples." Possibly the producers realized that Cathy is a nut and would add drama to the show, which she clearly does.

Lisa said...

I had a feeling Vivi was adopted because Cathy doesn't seem to have any maternal instinct at all. My heart goes out to that poor baby. Cathy never talks to her or listens to her. That little girl just seems so depressed and miserable all the time, she's more like Cathy's possession than her child.

cadence said...

I'm with you, Lisa. The way it looks to me is that Cathy adopted Vivi to have a protege, and it's not working out so she's just ignoring Vivi so she doesn't go against the goals Cathy set for her.

Anonymous said...

Cathy seems like such an obvious plant to make the show more interesting. Her little girl doesn't seem very interested in dancing. But she drives two hours to the studio.

Great post! I always wondered what was up with Vivi and Cathy

elenamarie said...

that poor little vivi. I had years of infertility, and it angers me GREATLY to see that precious little baby look so depressed. it's obvious that that pretty little thing doesn't want to dance, but wants to make her mama happy and proud. Cathy is clearly living in the past, and trying to have her child do what she "wishes" she could have done. Her husband is a freaking insurance adjuster...she must spend it faster than he makes it!!! When she made the comment about "flashing Abby a couple dead presidents," she sounded so stupid...like someone with NO money, wanting to "look" important. All I can say is..."poor Vivi-Ann"...I've had infertility, and adopted a precious little baby, and was only able to keep her for 6 weeks. You don't "use" these prescious little miracles just for you own satisfaction, and personal gratification, for getting ahead in life. That poor little girl. Cathy will see someday. That little girl will rebel....AND I TRULY HOPE SHE DOES. Cathy does NOT deserve to be a mother. It's obvious it was an afterthought...waaay after 50!!! VIVI, there are plenty of mommies that would love to love you and let you be a "kid." You need to play with babydolls, and do what you want to do. Makes you wonder Cathy's motive for adopting...AND...WHERE THE HELL THEY GET ALL THEIR MONEY....THAT POOR MR. STEIN!!! I know how much adjustors make, and it's not enough to keep Cathy in the style to which she is accustomed.

elenamarie said...

I feel so sorry for poor little Vivi. She is clearly just a pawn in her adoptive mom's game. I'm not saying this to be mean. I myself had many MANY years of infertiliity, before having my precious daughter. I even adopted a baby at 17 days old, and at less than 6 weeks, lost her. Long story....but, bottom line...I know what it's like to adopt, and I know what it's like to want a child very badly. As far a I can tell, Cathy just plain wanted a child to "exploit and use her." That poor baby is only 6 years old, and obviously does NOT want to dance but would do anything for her mommy.
I love Kelly, Christie, Holly, and Melissa. I think they are truly trying to do what's right for their beautiful girls. The girls are all soooo talented. I always feel badly when Maddie and Chloe seem to be competing. They are such talented young ladies, and it's obvious they don't really want to be up against eachother.
I DO think Abby loves the girls. I danced for Arita Lee Blair in Meadville, PA many years ago. She was alot like Abby. Many people knew her. She was once a Broadway performer, and she turned alot of professionals out. She was sooo mean, but she, like Abby wanted her students to go pro. I quit long before those years. I live in Conneaut Lake PA, and would love to meet the moms. My sister lives right in Pittsburgh, and is a teacher in the school system. I admire them for their perserverence and what they do for their girls. I know it's certainly expensive!! That's what kills me about Cathy!!! Her husband works in insura??!!! come on??!!!!! That poor man must be in debt up to his -------!!!!!! It's women like Cathy that give us women a bad name!!!
You girls ......keep dancing...but, have fun and enjoy life!!!!
You moms...... you are great moms and don't let things get to you. I can certainly understand when you all get mad at Abby. She DOES need to lighten up......ALOT!!! BUT...I'm sure she is a nice person. You can tell she DOES care about the girls.
GOD BLESS YOU ALL!!!!! I'D LOVE TO TALK TO ANY OF YOU.

Okay guys, here's what's up. My best friend danced at Candy Apple's since she was a little girl and is close with Cathy, and all of you are just being cruel. Cathy and Abby are FRIENDS. Abby contacted Cathy when the producers wanted a character like her on the show. Repeat, they are FRIENDS, this stuff is basically faked. And to say Vivi is not loved or has been STOLEN is just ridiculous! Do you know anything about the adoption process at all? Cathy has ALWAYS wanted a child and she has given Vivi the world and treats her with nothing but love. Obviously she's not as enthusiastic about dance as Cathy would like, but the producers are CREATING that drama. And I've met Cathy, she's a little over the top but she is a perfectly decent, intelligent human. She's profiting off of all this crap you're saying about her. That show is fun, but totally fake. Cathy is a good mom, it's sick to make these assumptions.

I think everyone (including friends of Cathy) needs to remember that this is a TV show. If everyone got along and it was all peaceful, no one would watch. I have a friend that produces one of the most successful reality tv shows in history and they do create drama and story lines. Does anyone still believe that professional wrestling isn't staged? Despite the genre name, it isn't reality. It's only based in reality. Anyone who chooses to be on the show to be portrayed as an antagonist knows what they are getting into. No need to feel sorry for them (unless they have sub IQ's and didn't have a clue). Cathy is probably laughing all the way to the bank. Finally, the people that say nasty things about a child are the lowest form of miserable human beings.

Less Than Reality said...

Cathy is probably at her studio laughing with her students as Dance Moms hits the air waves. This show probably pays her well (she was cast, after all) and she's probably gained a ton of students.

I'd love to get to know Cathy for who she really is...I bet she's a really great actress!

Cathy is disgusting. Worse are theses clowns who influence kids by yelling in front of the kids. What is wrong with these people!

No wonder Cathy you belong to the Republican party...look at you, pathetic. Revenge I will show you attitude is indicative of the republican party....no brainier. Your smug superior than thou attitude is gross

Anonymous said...

Cast or not cast, I don't see how Cathy thinks this show will do anything but make her look petty and dishonest. I wouldn't put my child in her studio to learn to dance because of the way Cathy allows herself to either be portrayed or actually is. Whether it's creative editing or reality, Cathy comes accross as a terrible person. And her daughter is portrayed as not enjoying what she is there to do. Don't attack a child's physical appearance. Attack the mom that is exploiting a child that obviously does not want to be her mother's clone.

Anonymous said...

I feel very sorry for Vivianne. It is clear that she does not enjoy dancing. And that's okay because dancing is not for everyone. You can tell that she is only dancing because she it trying desperately to win her mother's love and attention. She is young, but clearly she does not have the talent of Chloe or Maddie. There is nothing wrong with that. Very few people will actually have that kind of talent. Vivanne can continue to dance (as this appears to be the only way she can be involved with her mother) one or two days a week. There are many other activities around that she can pick from. Her mother needs to remember that she should not overbook this little girl and give her an anxiety disorder! Cathy, you need to open your eyes and ears and do what is best for your daughter and not yourself. These years will slip away quickly and she will be gone soon. Vivianne will find a friend's mother who accepts her for who she is and attach herself to this other woman. You will be left out in the cold to dance all by yourself!

One thing about Cathy bugs me to death. Candy Apple's Dance Studio. Somebody PLEASE tell her that the apostrophe does not belong. Apples cannot dance nor own a studio. This makes her look stupid.

Unless Candy Apple is a person, but I really doubt it.

Anonymous said...

What makes Cathy appear to be a sorry excuse for a mother (and a woman) is her using "below the belt" insults, such as her remarks to Christi about her nose, her clothes, ect. Those kinds of comments said in front of children is just wrong. The show is fake, no doubt, but anyone should have the sense not to say things like that, period. But it is Melissa I cannot stand. The woman is off the charts nuts.

Anonymous said...

As my own personal opinion, I feel that Cathy may just be a better person than most of the moms. Yes, it was strange to find her take her daughter vivi-Anne to a different dance studio, but personality wise, I find her quite well put together. Besides, it looks like she is opening doors for her other students. Ex: Kendall, she has really improved ever since she started attending Candy Apples.

cathy's wrong for showing her ass at the ballet audition. i dont get why she keeps trying this crap with the same routines as abby dancers. also kendall has left cathy and returned to abby lee. in the finale tonite being happy and going into the abby lee room to say haha we won 9th place by 1 point is childish. i get it drama sells and makes people watch but, to say these things in front of kids. if i was there i would have been horrified.

I agree with what you said, very well put. I also danced for Arita Lee Blair in the '70's, I used to live in Hadley. I randomly ran across this and couldn't believe it when I saw Arita Lee's name mentioned! Oh my goodness the memories that brought back! I would love to chat about old times there if you ever get a chance msg me at Tracy15717@gmail.com

Gina Halpert said...

So according to the person answering questions about Cathy, she is a warm, wonderful person and all the horrible things she said were faked? How did they get her to fake all those comments? I can't believe you think anyone would buy it. I think Cathy didn't know how horrible she came off till she saw it on TV, and was embarrassed. She should be embarrassed.

Anonymous said...

She just doesn't want to dance, what's wrong with that? Vivi is just a little girl who is certainly not fat. So she doesn't have as much talent as some people, I'm pretty sure she's 50 times better than you. So leave her alone! She's 8!

Something appears to be wrong with Vivi Anne's eyes her focus is really peculiar. Some one should take her to the eye doctor before her vision is affected. I thought Cathy's husband sold beef jerky. I guess i must have come in in the middle of the episode.

Anonymous said...

I thought vivianne was a 'plant'. I don't agree with her as a 'poor little thing'. i think Vivi' is not the brightest and has 000000 talent. She is perfectly content and I believe probably quite spoiled. Thank goodness for the low IQ since she probably will not have enough cunning to really turn in to a royal bitch like mom. And yes I don't for one minute believe that Cathy is a kindhearted individual. I think they are all in to their 15 minutes and God help us all when they grow up. I think the fall-out from this pseudo fame is going to bring them nothing but heartache. Too bad...it looks like they all have upper middle class status and there in no need for this fame$$$$$. Maddie is truly a talent but her lines are well rehearsed and her mother clearly coaches her to seem humble, sweet and self-deprecating. It is easy to be nice when things are going your way. Let's see how Maddie does when they are not. OOPS, that's right we have!!!! She came unglued and I cannot imagine what got edited out.

Anonymous said...

I think when people put their kids out there for the world to see, act badly to make a quick buck...you are opening yourself up to ridicule. Vivi should not be in the picture!!!! Her mother is asking for it and Vivi is merely a pawn. It is sad and Cathy should try to foster activities etc that will empower Vivi....not make her a laughing stock. I agree that she seems to be somewhat challenged and it is unkind to focus on her shortcomings. Cathy GET VIVI OFF THE STAGE!!!!YOU AREN'T DOING HER ANY FAVORS. She will soon be to chubby for the strongest of dancers to haul around the stage. It reminds me of grade school when the principles daughter (in my class) was favored by the teachers despite her atrocious attitude. We all knew it at 6 yrs. old. Way to screw your kid up!!! GO APPLES!!

That's rude! Why would you shout food orders at anyone? I work in the food and beverage industry. Don't EVER yell or act crazy with someone who handles your food. We have perfected our ways of backpay. We could be doing the most horrific to your food. In fact we do it right in front of you sometime. Pay with a credit card? We have your name dumbass. Google is amazing. We can find out anything we want to about you. We can find out what you do for a living and mess with your income. Come yell a food order at me and see what happens!

You can express your opinion about any adult who puts themselves on television and makes their business public. But only a low down ignorant person would make fun of any child. Vivi is beautiful and Gods child. Be careful what you say about other peoples children, karma can be real cruel.

Anonymous said...

Answers: Cathy was contacted by Abby to "c'mon over and audition for the show". She was not interested, but after being relentlessly pursued she signed on.
Cathy has a very successful dance studio (20+ years) and typically cleans house at most competitions. If you watch the episodes with a careful eye, some of the editing is less than perfect and look at clues you can come to your own conclusion about how much real is in reality.
Cathy also is great with finances as is her husband and they both have been very successful.
Vivi was not kidnapped and it is not their character to have done such a thing.
Vivi is also extremely intelligent. She reads way above her grade level. She also is very mature for her age and has a great sense of humor. She does like to dance, but has a full well balanced life that consists of more than just dance. She is absolutely a beautiful little girl and always gets complimented by people.
Cathy is quirky, funny, and most of all, an artist. Her mind is constantly filling with creative ideas. She is confident and outgoing with a good business sense. She is a loving daughter (she designed her home so that her mother has a fabulous place of her own), sister in law, friend and amazing mother. Admittedly, Vivi wants for nothing, but she is also raised to exhibit proper behavior, manners and fulfill responsibilities. Just a great kid to spend time with!

ok so i love dance moms and at first i wasnt the biggest fan of vivi and cathy but the dancers at Candy Apples are amazing and really nice and so is Cathy. Look I dont know them personally (i wish i did) but they all are really talented so you know what if you keep saying Vivi sucks when you were 6 could you do half the stuff she could I DOUBT IT!!

I'm wondering she said she opened her own dance studio at age 14? How does a person at age get so much money and what about school ?did she quit? who would sign over a building to a 14 year old.to me that sound fishy. A 14 yr old can't do anything they can't even work.its against the law

Our teacher started teaching at 15 in her parents studio

I'm assuming Abby started out working in her moms studio

Oh stop it all of you. Cathy is great, she makes an already funny, delightful and interesting show, that much more interesting. I love Abby and Cathy, the girls and their moms. Do not make assumptions about Cathy's parenting techniques, it's clear to me that she love her child, she hasn't made her diet or change in anyway. Vivi is just introspective, she is not depressed, if anything the show will be giving her more confidence. Don't be a hater, it's all for your enjoyment...

Anonymous said...

Abby is hard on her dancers but she gets results out of each and every one. Kathy on the other hand has to hire
someone to do the choreography and "if" they win she takes all the credit like she actually put in the work. Kathy wishes that she could be Abby when it comes to dance.

Anonymous said...

Cathy and Anthony are very very rude and harsh. To talk about a young dancer in a negative way where an entire audience can hear it is just horrible and vicious. They harass Abby and the kids in her studio. The outcome of that situation would have been MUCH different if that were my kid. Cathy is a pathetic, bitter woman that takes credit for someone else's work.

I completely agree with the person's above me post. Cathy is a plagarist and an awful person. Here is what the person above me said, "Cathy and Anthony are very very rude and harsh.

Yes! Cathy is crazy and I feel bad for her daughter. It seems to me Cathy adopted her to be her little "doll" and it is really sad. I live in Canton, OH just a few minutes from CADC.
I do want to make a slight correction to this article. Cathy's husband owns and operates a beef jerky store. It is located right next to the studio. The website to the local newspaper article: http://www.cantonrep.com/newsnow/x493667571/Cathy-Nesbitt-Stein-enjoys-brash-reality-role-on-Dance-Moms

I personally cannot STAND Cathy. Her daughter acts more mature than her. The "my team beat yours" crap is absolutely ridiculous. She needs to grow up.

I do NOT believe anyone should sit there and pick on any kids. It shows insecurity on your own parts to sit there and talk down on a child. Please grow up!

Anonymous said...

I have never seen a more ridiculous, immature, low class, vindictive idiot than Cathy. And I cannot fathom how she can claim to beat Abby Lee's team when she didn't teach the boys on the team and didn't choreograph the dance! It's like someone buying a cake from a bakery and entering it in a cake decorating contest and then claiming to win on their own talent.

This is clearly a post by Cathy! Lmao!

You guys who are saying its all staged by the producers - are those little girls staging their tears and injuries as well?

Gracie said...

Making your kid diet is not the only thing that can make you a bad parent. As a parent you should set a good example for your kid. What baffles me is that Cathy really seems to think she has a "positive environment" in her studio, and while she is certainly nicer to the kids than Abby, making fun of Abby and saying they're there just to beat Abby is not something I would call positive. And Vivi-anne clearly couldn't care less about dance, but while she wants to play softball, Cathy said she would rather slit her wrists than have that happen.

I was behind Cathy at O'Hare airport in Chicago last year the day before Thanksgiving. I admittedly love Dance Moms, but have never really liked Cathy's "character" on the show. Anyways, my 11 year old wheelchair bound niece who idolizes Maddie and religiously watches the show was right next to me in line and immediately recognized Cathy and was so excited to be directly behind a "TV star". Imagine my horror when Cathy leaned over a little bit and farted then proceeded to pick her wedgie and fan the air around her butt while not having the decency to turn around and apologize. This was seriously less then 1 foot from my nieces face since she was in her wheelchair and was one of the loudest and longest farts I have EVER heard from a lady. I'm not trying to be vulgar or offensive, but it smelled like rotten eggs. I know it had to have been hell for my niece because I along with 2 very sweet older ladies could hardly breathe because it was honestly that bad! When one of the older ladies said "ahem, excuse you", Cathy had the audacity to glance behind her shoulder, glare down at my niece and say, "what?". I still to this day can not believe that actually happened. I know it was her because prior to the incident she had been signing autographs and talking to a male fan about how busy her life is now because of the show. Also, she looks identical in real life to how she does on the show and is just as erratic and loud. I still embarrassingly enough watch Dance Moms but literally get sick to my stomach when she is on the episode.

If you read the bios about the faculty the Reign things is not that confusing. Reign is the part of the Dance studio that her mother started in Florida. When Abby's Mother left Florida she gave the studios to her more advanced students but kept the name.
Same with the previous name thing. A logical assumption would be that Abby's Mother let Abby use those names when she first started the company, and when Abby's name bean to carry weight Abby began using her own name. Other wise It would have been that much harder for a fourteen year o0ld to start a business.

I actually know Cathy personally... I was a student at her dance studio. You can't always make a great judgment of a person based on the bits and pieces you see filmed on the half hour program. She is a very good dance teacher. She is firm but not cruel. If you want to be successful you need that, it's all part of the business. Cathy is also a wonderful mother to Vivi. She is a good person and wants best for her. Remember, the comments made about "celebrities" does matter, they are still human beings. It's "reality" T.V. don't be foolish and believe everything you see.
