Some of the teams that “push headfirst” onto the stage, as a judge Dexter Mayfield puts it, include Limp Bizkit drummer John Otto and her 11-year-old daughter, Ava, as well as dance moms alums Kamryn Smith, 10, and her mother, Adrian Smith.

“I’m going to try almost anything,” says Adriana. “I may not be good at it, but I go all out.”
