Abby Lee Miller's early years

Abby Lee Miller was born on September 21, 1965, in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, to parents Maryen Lorrain and George L. Miller. Her mother was a dance instructor, so the girl stepped into her mother's shoes. The child was brought up around dance and was studying under her mother's supervision at the Maryen Lorrain Dance Studio.

When Abby was just 14 years old, she started to work. She was choreographing and coaching for one of her mom's dance competition teams. In 1995 she took over the dance studio and gave it a new name. Her studio was called Reign Dance Productions.

In 2011, Abby appeared on new episodes at the time called 'Dance Moms.' The opportunity was super helpful for Abby as Abby was in financial trouble at that time. She was in the process of filing for bankruptcy. 'Dance Moms' was successful and won the hearts of millions. The show inspired several projects including 'Abby's Ultimate Dance Competition,' 'Dance Moms: Miami' and 'Dance Moms: Abby's Studio Rescue.'

Today, her dance show is famous and her fans are happy to watch the eighth season.

'Dance Moms' isn't the only TV show Abby has appeared on as she starred on other dance series. The ‘Dance Moms' star appeared on 'ABC's Dancing with the Stars' as a guest judge and apparently she earned a lot of money for her expertise. Moreover, she also had a cameo on the TV show, called 'Drop Dead Diva.'

Abby has spent many years, teaching dance, and her expertise is worth considering. She shared her experience with the audience publishing a book in 2014. The book was titled 'Everything I Learned about Life, I Learned in Dance Class.'

The TV star experienced financial troubles, though. In 2015, she was charged with several counts of fraud due to claims that she allegedly tried to hide her money from 'Dance Moms.' Abby had to pay two fines, one for $40,000 and another for $120,000, but that wasn't all. She had to spend some time in prison. Her cancer diagnosis was terrible and probably required a lot of money too. Treatment is usually expensive, so Abby's net worth could decrease.
