    Dance Moms doesn't do the dance world any favors, and I would think Ice Moms will be the same. Skating doesn't need negativity, it needs a shot in the arm. I mentioned this on another thread, but I am friends with a lovely lady orthopaedist who was one of the students and company dancers from the Dance Moms' studio. She said the teacher and her behavior was NOTHING like the show, and it was all for TV. She said the owner/teacher is a really nice woman and she couldn't remember any incident where the young dancers were abused or mistreated.

    My answer to that is....so why would this woman want the world to think of her the way she is portrayed on that show? has she no pride? Dignity? Is notoriety and money all that matters?

    Impression? Horrible. Loud-mouthed women yelling at each other - charming.

    If the kids are ISI members and not USFS members at the time of making the show (taking the fact that they made money off the show out of the equation because I don't know the impact of that), how would their participation affect future USFS memberships? Unless things have really changed since my days of doing ISI, USFS does not monitor the skating activities of non-members.

    I didn't think so either, but I wish those women would either coach their own kids or leave their coach alone. That didn't sound like a good idea from the start. The show could be much better but I guess they want the ratings more than actual reality.
