Cheryl Burke Takes Over For Abby Lee Miller on ‘Dance Moms’

TAO, Beauty & Essex, Avenue and Luchini LA Grand Opening - Day 1

Cheryl Burke’s got a new job—teaching dance to little girls on Dance Moms after Abby Lee Miller’s dramatic departure. Cheryl was lasted spotted on “Dancing with the Stars” before heading over to Dance Moms. Burke was seen entering Miller’s Los Angeles studio today in front of the paps after an ‘amazing’ first day. “I’m very excited to work with the kids,” Burke told ET. “Honestly it’s a great change for me. I’m teaching very talented kids.”

Abby Lee thinks Cheryl is a great addition to the show.”I think that’s great. I only met her once at a housewarming party a couple weeks ago. I’m glad that someone who has worked on a network show for as long as she has on Dancing With the Stars is going to see what I’ve been working with for seven years. I don’t think she’s replacing me, I think it’s going to be a different vibe.”

Choreographer Laurieann Gibson may also appear on the show.

The majority of children that follow me may be fast asleep, however now is the critical time to make the following statement: I WILL NO LONGER TAKE PART IN DANCE MOMS. FOR THE PAST SIX YEARS/ SEVEN SEASONS I HAVE ASKED, BEGGED, AND EVEN DEMANDED CREATIVE CREDIT FOR ALL THE IDEAS, AWARD WINNING ROUTINES, THEMES, AND COSTUMING – TO NO AVAIL! TODAY, I WAS SO PROUD THAT I WENT AGAINST THE PRODUCER’S IDEA (ONCE AGAIN) TO ENTER A COMMAND PERFORMANCE OF ONE OF MY FAVORITE NUMBERS… “WHERE HAVE ALL THE CHILDREN GONE?” ALONG WITH THREE BEAUTIFUL SOLOS! I don’t have a problem working with any kid, I love children and have dedicated my life to making other people’s children successful! I JUST HAVE A PROBLEM WITH BEING MANIPULATED, DISRESPECTED, AND USED – DAY IN AND DAY OUT BY MEN WHO NEVER TOOK A DANCE LESSON IN THEIR LIVES AND TREAT WOMEN LIKE DIRT! #dancemoms #season7 #ALDC #aldcalways #newbeginnings #aldcla #alllovedancecourage
