“Dance Moms” star Abby Lee Miller is free to be a dancing queen once again — she’s out of jail.

The one-time reality star, 51, was released from federal prison Tuesday and is headed to a halfway house in California, according to multiple reports.

Miller is not entirely off the hook, though, as she’s still required to obey a strict set of rules, including a set of drug tests and meetings with her probation officer.

The choreographer reportedly risks a return to the big house should she not adhere to her supervised release agreement.

Reps for Miller did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Miller’s early release from the Victorville Federal Correctional Institution in California comes eight months after she was locked up in July for bankruptcy fraud.

She was sentenced in May to one year and one day — meaning she was sprung four months early — and ordered to pay a $120,000 judgment, plus a $40,000 fine.

In a January Instagram post that has since been deleted, the ex-Lifetime reality star flaunted a reported 100-pound weight loss, and lamented the trust she placed in “the wrong people,” which she says landed her behind bars.

“Sometimes in life you make mistakes I trusted the wrong people and didn’t pay any attention to things I should of (sic). I’m more than sorry for the mistakes I have made,” she wrote.

“My world flipped upside down when I had to enter prison. I did so with grace, the stories you read about me been (sic) a princess are untrue. I have made friends with both inmates and staff, I’ve tried to better myself, participated in anything offered to me and I am a better person for this experience.”

Miller rose to fame in 2011, when “Dance Moms” premiered on Lifetime, highlighting her Pittsburgh-area dance studio. She quit the show in a dramatic Instagram rant last summer.
