Abby Lee Miller was born to parents Maryen Lorrain Miller and George L Miller; her mother owned a self-named dance studio, so unsurprisingly Abby followed her mother’s footsteps and studied choreography and dance. While still studying at high school she played the clarinet, and attended ski and charm clubs, however, soon she realised that she was better at creating dances and coaching dancers than actually performing, and so founded her own self-named dance studio. What is most surprising is that at that time she was still only 14 years old. Later, Miller united with her mother’s dance studios, and they were re-named Reign Dance Productions (1995-present).
However, the most significant source of Abby Lee Miller’s wealth has been the television show “Dance Moms” (2011–present).

Although her teaching and motivating methods are sometimes criticized as being too aggressive, or even psychologically abusive, the show has high ratings. In fact, it has been nominated for a number of awards, winning three of them – BMI Cable Award, Dancers’ Choice Award and Kids’ Choice Award.
Following the popularity of the show, three spin-offs Hve been released: “Abby’s Ultimate Dance Competition” (2012–2013), “Dance Moms: Miami” (2012) and “Dance Moms: Abby’s Studio Rescue” (2014). Afterwards, Dance Moms went to Los Angeles and continues their work there. These programs added considerably to Miller’s net worth.
In addition to these projects, Abby Lee Miller appeared on the reality competition show “Dancing with the Stars” (2014) as a guest judge. Miller is also the author of the book “Everything I Learned about Life, I Learned in Dance Class” (2014). These also increased the net worth of Abby Lee Miller.
