  • Payton Ackerman began dancing at the Abby Lee Dance Company when she was 11 years old. She was trained and later found herself dancing for “Reign Dance Productions.” The reality TV show “Dance Moms” premiered on Lifetime in 2011.
  • The vicious attitude of leading teacher Abbey Lee Miller, combined with the drama. And outstanding dancing by young dancers made the show a hit and drew Payton’s attention.
  • Payton was already under the tutelage of Abbey Lee Miller. So, in 2012, she jumped at the chance to be a part of the dance show’s second season. Similarly, Payton Ackerman joined the “Abbey Lee Dance Company (ALDC)” at the age of ten.
  • When she was 14, they joined “Dance Moms.” Her journey in the show, on the other hand, was anything but smooth.
  • Miller frequently chastised Payton on camera for being taller than the other contestants. It didn’t help that her mother was constantly arguing with Miller and getting into physical fights with Christi Lukasiak.
  • As a result, the show was edited in such a way that Payton was portrayed as a spoilt brat, bully, and immature. However, she was friends with a number of girls and this continued even after she left the show.
  • Payton was left off the “Dance Moms” competition team near the end of the season due to her height, despite being one of the best dancers. And this was the final straw for her mother, who decided Abbey Miller’s treatment of Payton was unjust.
  • Then she exited the show. Furthermore, despite Miller’s request for her to return, her journey was cut short due to interference from her mother. Payton’s stint on “Dance Moms” provided her with enough exposure to become a household name.
  • Payton Ackerman later returned to “ALDC” to teach in 2015. In an interview, she explained that her relationship with Abbey was not bad at all and that much of the drama on the show was not as it appeared.

  • Similarly, she eventually left “ALDC” on good terms in order to relocate to Los Angeles and pursue a solo career. Furthermore, despite a lengthy absence from reality television, Payton not only worked hard but also managed to carve out a successful career for herself.
