Abby Lee Miller sells longtime ‘Dance Moms’ studio for $300K


It’s an end of an era for Abby Lee Miller.

The television personality is parting ways with her longtime — and famed — Pennsylvania dance studio for $300,000, The Post can report.

Sources add the building will be used for another commercial purpose, which means Miller’s dance studio is officially closing come the new year.

Located in Pittsburgh, Miller, 57, purchased the building in 1993 for $150,000 — about $313,000 in today’s figures. Property records obtained by The Post reveal that the building quietly sold in an off-market deal on Dec. 12.

Transforming the property into what fans know as the ultimate dance studio, the Abby Lee Dance Company, it put her on the map and launched her into reality stardom.

In 2011, Miller began filming the hit Lifetime television show “Dance Moms” at the studio, in which she appeared for seven seasons through October 2017.

The buyer, Timothy Krise, is the owner of a transportation company in the community.

Following the rising popularity of the series, three spin-offs of Dance Moms came to be, including “Abby’s Ultimate Dance Competition Dance Moms: Miami” and “Dance Moms: Abby’s Studio Rescue.”

On May 4, 2020, Miller announced on Instagram that after nine years, she was leaving “Dance Moms” and Lifetime altogether.

Currently, Miller, known for her sassy personality and toughness with her dance students, is living in a three-bedroom, two-bathroom home in Davenport, Florida.

She purchased the 1,700-square-foot home there in 2005 for $243,000. In 2021, she briefly put it up for rent for $2,500 a month.

It’s likely that Miller is strapped for cash following her bankruptcy case in 2016.

Miller pleaded guilty to felony bankruptcy fraud and was sentenced to one year and a day in federal prison. She was released on March 27, 2018.

One month following her release she developed lymphoma — a form of cancer that made her unable to walk.

She announced in April this year that she was cancer-free following additional surgeries and 10 rounds of spinal tap chemotherapy.
