      Dancers at the Pink Slipper School of Dance in Leesburg had a special visitor on Monday.

      Hannah and Debi Epstein of the Lifetime Network Show "Dance Moms: Miami" stopped by the studio as part of the mother/daughter duo's campaign against bullying.

      As a victim of bullying by other mothers on the show, 12-year-old Hannah says she used to bottle up how she felt until she realized it was better to speak out.

      Now Hannah and her mother travel across the country educating dancers on how to embrace being yourself -- which they do by spreading the message of "I Love Being Me."

      Dancers at the Pink Slipper not only listened to the Epsteins and their experience but also got a personal dance lesson by Hannah.

      Hannah says she feels it's important to speak to young girls and let them know it's okay to be yourself.
