"I need to get back to teaching and I need to get back to screaming at children," she says to the camera. "I need to get back to my roots. I'm going to take these kids right back to the turf."

Despite her cancer battle, Abby Lee Miller is returning to the small screen to do what she loves -- teach dance and scream at children.

In the first trailer for Lifetime's "Dance Moms Resurrection," released Tuesday, the reality star, 52, teases her triumphant return to the ALDC (Abby Lee Dance Company) following her harrowing diagnosis with Burkitt lymphoma, a rare form of non-Hodgkin's lymphoma last April.

"In an instant, your life changes completely," Miller says in the clip, while fighting back tears in a hospital bed. "I was ready to go back to work and start my life over and now I can't even walk."

Back in May 2017, the dance instructor was sentenced to one year and one day in federal prison for bankruptcy fraud. She began her sentence in July and was released in March 2018, shortly before her cancer diagnosis. Miller completed the remainder of her sentence in a halfway house. Luckily, it seems that Miller is putting all of this behind her and getting back to doing what she loves.

"I need to get back to teaching and I need to get back to screaming at children," she says to the camera. "I need to get back to my roots. I'm going to take these kids right back to the turf."

"There's people that counted me out, thought I was finished, considered the ALDC [Abby Lee Dance Company] dead," Miller, who now uses a wheelchair, tells the new dancers. "Well I fought hard to be here and you have to be a fighter too. You have to fight to get those legs straight, fight to get better feet, you have to fight to be a champion."

It looks like Season 8 of the Lifetime series will document Miller's ongoing health battle as well as her determination to whip her team into shape.

"I have my own personal goals and I have goals for the team," she explains. "I need to be ready for that first competition. We need to make a statement on that stage that the ALDC is back... and watch out!"

"Dance Moms Ressurection" premieres this June on Lifetime.
