Abby's back, but she's only focusing on the minis; and a new mini auditions for the team. Later, the moms complain when Brynn is chosen for the lead role in the junior team's only routine; and Brynn's future at the ALDC depends on a win with Maddie set to return next week.
After resigning the previous week, Abby locks the team out of her studio. Elsewhere, Debbie Allen invites the ALDC to work with her; guest choreographer Nakul prepares a Bollywood routine for the minis; Kalani and Nia are pushed to their breaking point with a duet; and Peyton and her mom struggle with two dances.
The minis prepare to compete with their first group dance; Maddie and two other ALDC girls book a photo shoot; and Maddie and Brynn face off with their solo routines. Later, the chaotic studio leads Abby to make a huge announcement that could tear the team apart.
The new mini team arrives at the ALDC L.A. as Abby stresses over the new dancers and her continuing legal troubles. Meanwhile, Kendall's position on the Junior Competition team is threatened; and Jill goes after Ashlee and Brynn.
In the Season 6 premiere, Abby has a big announcement for the ALDC; and Maddie shoots her first movie while Jill and Kendall aren't pleased with her substitute. Elsewhere, Jeanette and the BDA team are back to show the ALDC how it's done.
