The clip features all the dancers who chose to be part of the reunion, namely Jojo Siwa, Chloe Lukasiak, Brooke Hyland, Paige Hyland, Kendall Vertes and Kalani Hilliker. Their mums Jessalynn Siwa, Kelly Hyland, Jill Vertes, and Kira Hilliker are also joining, with Christi Lukasiak making a guest appearance.

The clip includes scenes where the past contestants are brought to tears whilst reminiscing on the hardest challenges as part of the Abby Lee Dance Company.

As fans noticed when the project was first announced by Dance Moms and Siwa on Instagram last November, there are some notable absentees. The reunion won't feature the likes of Maddie and Mackenzie Ziegler, as well as Nia Sioux, with Siwa seemingly addressing her former co-stars' absence in the trailer.

"Them not being here is kinda like: 'Let me erase my past, pretend it never happened, shove it down the drain,' when it's like, that's why you are who you are," the dancer tells her friends in the video.

Speaking about some of her former co-stars deciding not to take part, Siwa previously addressed fans to avoid speculation: "Grateful for this day! For everyone wondering about the few people missing, everyone was invited today but only some wanted to be here."

Dance Moms: The Reunion airs on Lifetime in the US on May 1. A UK release date is TBC.
