Abby Lee Miller may have her doubts about the future of Dance Moms, but her replacement is tapping to a much more positive number!
Cheryl Burke spoke out about replacing Miller on the hit Lifetime reality show after the OG abruptly quit earlier this week.
The Dancing With The Stars veteran shared her excitement over her new instructing gig on Thursday in a confident Instagram post (above).

The pro performer shared a picture of herself in the studio holding a notebook, speaking to (we assume) the girls and their titular mothers — without any of her predecessor's eye rage!
If the 32-year-old's calm and respectful demeanor wasn't enough of an indicator what an awesome coach she'll be, her motivational caption pretty much confirmed it. She wrote:
Maybe it's not too late to say sorry.
Abby Lee Miller has been shouting from the rooftops this week how unfairly she was treated while hosting Dance Moms — but it seems not all hope is lost for her to return to the dance competition series.
The 50-year-old — who says her abrupt departure this week was a "long time coming" — told People it was a friend/makeup artist/hair stylist who "called the boss and said I'm done" on Sunday that prompted Abby Lee to pull the plug:
"That was it. There was a lot that went on. I don't think that [the production company] has ever been able to differentiate between my livelihood, which they think is a TV show, and my livelihood as a dance teacher with a dance studio. To me, I never know when the show is going to end. I know my dance studio is not going to end until I say it ends."

Another "last straw" came when the reality star alleges the production company staged drama in front of unpaid families at one of Miz Miller's competitions:
More dancing drama!
ICYMI, DWTS pro Cheryl Burke was announced to take over for Abby Lee Miller for the remainder of this season of Dance Moms – something the outspoken TV personality definitely has an opinion about!
Speaking to Inside Edition for the first time since news broke of her replacement, the 50-year-old ranted:
"I am so excited that somebody else is going to get the experience to work with these ass-holes. [Burke] is skinny, hot. I'm sure they're going to fawn all over her."

The dance instructor went on to tell ET:
"I think that's great…I only met her once at a housewarming party a couple weeks ago. I'm glad that someone who has worked on a network show for as long as she has on Dancing With the Stars is going to see what I've been working with for seven years. I don't think she's replacing me, I think it's going to be a different vibe."
Abby Lee Miller has already been replaced!
As we previously reported, the Dance Moms star dramatically announced her departure from the Lifetime show on Instagram on Monday evening. While Miz Miller's resignation sent fans into a panic over the state of the show, producers clearly went into crisis mode as they've already booked ALM's replacement for this season.

According to Entertainment Tonight, Dancing With The Stars pro Cheryl Burke will take over for Abby for the remainder of the show's season. Whoa!
It's said that the reality TV hit will resume filming today (March 29) and has been picked up for four more episodes this season. A source told the media outlet:
And that's a no from us for Cheryl Burke!
We really do appreciate the dancer's attempt to spice things up on the People's Choice Awards red carpet with boobs and leg… but this just ain't gonna cut it!
The 32-year-old made her best Black Swan impression in this lacy black Francesco Paolo Salerno dress (which totally risked a nip slip, BTW!) with a matching black choker — she's just missing the face paint! LOLz!
We do love that romantic glam though!

Of course there was a bit of other drama before our favorite celebs got their dance on as Val Chmerkovskiy broke down a bit talking about not wanting to let his partner, Laurie Hernandez, down! Val admitted:
Little woman. Big moves.
Terra Jolé is already the main character of her Lifetime reality series Little Women: LA, but she's quickly becoming the standout on Dancing with the Stars this season as well!
Not only is she consistently one of the top scorers alongside her pro — the newly engaged Sasha Farber — but Terra is very clearly the cast's favorite celeb to boot!
