Other Information Chaos at Nationals
- Kalani performed a solo, but somehow that solo placed first in the duet/trio category.
- Abby ranted calling the competition a joke, said she would never return to the competition again. The ALDC were awarded best studio however all the moms (except for Jess & Holly), and Abby/Gia got up and left and never accepted the award, and also pulled their dancers out.
- According to Abby, Mackenzie was 4th place junior solo, but simultaneously "Overall High Score Title Winner," despite not being entered in the title division.
- Mackenzie fell on concrete shortly before the competition, suffering cuts and scratches, but she still seems to be performing.
- Ava, Ashtin, Chloe' Smith, Haley and Tessa were listed in the competition program as performing for Jeanette's studio (rather than Candy Apples). The last four went to the competition together while wearing BDA (Jeanette's) jackets. (This was also the case at their last DM competition on May 9th.)
- Nia's music video for "Slay" premiered live at the competition.
- Mackenzie's solo was listed as open in the program guide, but the performance was rumored to be lyrical.
- On the Eventbrite site for this competition, it says that it is a "Dance Moms invitational". It is also noted that the event will take place on a Sunday from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. (PDT). The Lancaster Performing Arts Center address is also provided.
- May 24th: JoJo event in Las Vegas
- May 30th: Official "Grand Opening" date for ALDC LA. (There was also an overflowing crowd for the pre-event earlier in the day.)
- This appears to be the tenth and final week of filming on the West Coast, and is likely the end-of-season nationals competition.
- Among those attending the ALDC LA grand opening were Ashtin and Jennifer Roth, Chloe' and Liza Smith, and Tessa and Renee Wilkinson.
- Gisoni (Ziegler) family sold their old home in Pittsburgh, moving into a larger custom built house.

- Kalani is going to The Dance Awards in Las Vegas (June 26th to July 3rd), as a member of Club Dance. Like Club, Murrieta Dance Project is among studios sending significant numbers of dancers. More info on this Wiki's Related Competitions page.
- June 26th to 28th: JoJo tour in Massachusetts.
- June 30th: Expected broadcast date of a Pretty Little Liars episode that will guest star Maddie.
- Part of the ALDC will attend The Dance Awards in New York City, which are July 5th to 12th. Dancers sent as competitors: Mackenzie, Maddie, Brooke Kosinski (mini), Kylie Edwards (mini), Ryan Nogy (teen), Selah Curran (junior). More info on this Wiki's Related Competitions page.
- Nia interested in taking dance classes in New York, eventually doing so during the break; also interested in looking into work on acting and music.
- Maddie has said she is excited to have a summer off, and her plans are to do "nothing."
- The Hollywood Reporter, Deadline, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, and other media reported that Paige's lawsuit against Abby was dismissed on July 16th. After reviewing footage from Season 2, Judge Kwan stated that, contrary to claims in Paige's lawsuit, no reasonable person could have been in fear of being struck by the chair in question.
- July 21st to 26th: Dancerpalooza (IG) in Long Beach (Kalani, JoJo; a number of past and present guest dancers).
- July 22nd: In a lengthy Afterbuzz interview, Kira said that there will definitely be a Season 6 (with a date already set for reporting to filming, in L.A., around Kira's due date); but Kira said that she does not know who will be on that next season.
- According to Kira, Kalani goes back and forth on doing another season, saying that Kalani wants to focus on training on the one hand, but that she still loves the girls, Abby, and doing the show.
- Kira also said during the interview that she is done being the "freebie one" for Collins Avenue and Lifetime, and that all the girls are underpaid.
- Another complaint by Kira was that the kids had an amazing opportunity, but the network shut it down with a legal cease-and-desist order. This may be the same as the ALDC fan app that Abby talked about in a recorded question session on July 25th/26th; with the permission to launch that app being a big factor on whether Abby and "all" (correcting to "most") of the other kids will do a sixth season. (In the same recording alongside Abby, JoJo volunteered her own opinion on Season 6, which was incomprehensible from the recording; but from context and Abby's reaction, JoJo seems to have said that she would do another season if there was one, regardless of whether the app launched.)
