The network announced on Monday that it has ordered up to ten episodes of the new series, which will see 12 of the country's most talented young male and female dancers go head to head for a $100,000 cash prize and a scholarship to the Young Dancer Programme at the Joffrey Ballet School in New York.
Heading up Abby's Ultimate Dance Competition is Dance Moms alum Abby Lee Miller, who will serve as head judge.
She will be joined by Pussycat Dolls founder Robin Anton and celebrity choreographer Richard Jackson (Lady GaGa's 'Marry the Night').
The show will follow the contestants - aged 6 to 13 - as they compete in a number of challenges designed to test their skills for when they perform before Miller, Antin and Jackson, as well as a live audience in Los Angeles. One dancer will be eliminated weekly, with the final child taking home the grand prize.
"As Miller, Antin and Jackson must make the sometimes easy and other times difficult decision to eliminate one dancer each week, the intense on stage competition and stakes between dancers and mothers increase throughout the season, culminating with a finale performance that assuredly will change the winning dancer's life forever," a statement from Lifetime read.
Abby's Ultimate Dance Competition will premiere this autumn on Lifetime.
