Episode Run
First: The Competition Begins
  You're entitled to your wrong opinion, that's fine. 
Holly Hatcher-Frazier is the mother of Nia Frazier. She also has two sons, Evan and William Frazier.

When Holly previously was working as a school principal and before she completed her doctorate in education, Abby often criticized her for being absent in supporting her daughter.

Holly rarely engages in altercations with Abby because she usually keeps a calm attitude, earning her the title of "The Rational One."

In Dance Moms

Holly gets quite upset when Nia is placed in ethnic roles in dances, and has gotten in various fights with Abby as a result.

Season One

In The Competition Begins, she, Christi and Kelly talk about their dislike for the pyramid. At the competition, she gets ice for Paige after Kelly burns her arm.

In Wildly Inappropriate, Holly and Kelly talk about their daughters being at the bottom of the pyramid. She, Kelly and Christi talk about Abby giving all of her attention to Maddie.

Three days before the competition, Sandy, Abby's seamstress, does a fitting for the group dance costume, and when Holly sees Nia in the costume, she wonders where the rest of it was.

At the competition, when the group dance is getting ready, Holly thinks it will get disqualified, but she is trying to stay supportive. After the dance, Christi and Holly pull Abby aside to talk about how inappropriate the dance was.

In Cheerleader Blues, she thinks that the structure of the pyramid will never change, with Maddie always on top and Nia always on bottom.

In the den, she and the other moms talk about the pyramid. Four days to competition, Holly walks into the den and Christi comments on how early she was. Melissa comes into the den after her.

Kelly asks if Melissa and Cathy talked about her at their lunch, but Melissa says they talked about their husbands, surprising the moms.

In She's a Fighter, Nia is assigned "They Call Me Laquifa," and Holly fights with Abby over giving Nia ethnic roles.

Season Two

In the season's first episode, Holly misses Nia's rehearsal and the competition, finding herself on Abby's worst side.

In The Runaway Mom, Nia is placed at the top of the pyramid, scheduled to perform a special solo with Holly and her husband in attendance.

When it ends in a match-up against Kendall (newly arrived at Candy Apple's), heartbreak occurs for the Fraziers and Holly confronts an unusually speechless Abby.

An argument escalates in Miami Heat Wave, beginning with Holly asking Abby to consider Nia for the trio and ending in Holly being expelled, vowing never to return. Tempers quickly cool, and things return to relative normal.

Holly bitterly accuses Abby of favoritism in Abbygeddon when Abby cries after Maddie ran offstage in the middle of her dance, noting Abby had shown little compassion for other dancers in similar circumstances.

Taking a leave of absence from work in the second half of the season, Holly is put in charge of creating the zombie costumes in Night of the Living Dancers, with everyone impressed by the results.

She has reason to be proud when Nia is selected for a most improved dancer scholarship in The Recital to End All Recitals.

In the reunion specials, Holly is unimpressed by Kaya Wiley's belief that Holly should have supported her merely due to similar ethnic heritage.

Season Three

Like Christi, Jill and Melissa, she engaged in a silent protest near the start of the third season.

In Rotten to the Core, Holly worries about Nia's foot, and recounts Nia's history of RND. An argument leads Holly to call Abby a "monstrosity of evil."

In The Apple of Her Eye, Abby pretends she might give the role of Rosa Parks to someone besides Nia, and uses it as leverage to force Holly into receiving a makeover.


 It's like you're speaking Chinese over there! 
 Kelly to Holly, from Love on the Dance Floor'
 It's vicious at times, and sometimes I don't think Abby realizes. . .the way she says things and how hurtful her words are. 
 Holly, from Love on the Dance Floor'
 You are a monstrosity of evil.
