Season Four

  • She and her mother had repeated minor encounters with Abby and the ALDC early in the fourth season, including a third place finish at the Masters of Dance Arts competition in No Solo for You.
  • She appeared as part of the ALDC's new Elite Junior team that competed against the "original" team in the midseason finale Presenting My New Team. Abby considered her a competitor with Kendall.
  • In Double the Moms, Double the Trouble, she danced in the new team's group dance "The Rapture", which placed 1st.
  • In Chloe Gets Revenge, her prop malfunctions during her solo, with Abby describing her as a "kid who didn't know how to open an umbrella." She becomes tearful when Abby says she doesn't think Ava is the right fit for the team.
  • In No More Crybabies, Jeanette decides to bring her daughter to a competition against the ALDC, entered as a member of Jeanette's own studio. This creates a seemingly permanent split between them.
  • In Hollywood Here We Come, Part 1, Ava and Jeanette show up for pyramid anyway, but are kicked out by Abby.
