Rundown: Reality show chronicling six weeks in the lives of a ballet dancers at a real company, Ballet West
People: Four practically identical ballerinas, two ballet brothers, one Cooper Nielson look-alike and act-alike
Bonus: a really intense intro that makes the dancers look super bad-@$$, both unrequited and requited love (and it's real life, so it's even more heartbreaking), real talk behind the scenes of the business side of ballet
Where you can watch: Hulu, CW website
Should you watch: Yes - it's only six episodes, and worth it!
Rundown: A Las Vegas showgirl marries a rich man who lives with his mother, and goes home to live with them. He basically immediately dies in a car wreck, leaving Showgirl to deal with Mother-in-Law, who also runs a dance studio.
People: annoying teenage dancers (one of whom is named Boo. As in, the writers were naming all the characters and thought that Boo would make a great name), Gilmore Girls Grandma, Tyra's stripper sister from Friday Night Lights, lots of "quirky townspeople"
Bonus: Showgirl is played by Broadway vet Sutton Foster who I find to be quite charming and her delivery is hilarious.
Where you can watch: Hulu, ABC Family
Should you watch: Probably? Maybe? I'll let you decide
Rundown: Tara Webster, backwoods Austrailian girl who lives on a farm with BABY KANGAROOS, is chosen to attend the National Academy of Dance in Sydney and train to be a ballet dancer. Shenanigans, dream-making, dream-crushing, best-friend-making, stupid-decisions-involving-boys ensue.
People: Australian teenagers. In Australia. And they are awesome. It's one of those shows where I can't decide which character is my favorite because THEY ARE ALL MY FAVORITE. (But really, Abigail is my favorite. Or maybe Kat. Probably Sammy.)
Bonus: Australian accents, Tara doing things that are so embarrassing you literally have to turn away from the screen, hip-hop/ballet combos, Australia, they're in Australia, Season 2 will destroy your life, the kids are Australian
Where you can watch: Netflix, and apparently they also play it on TeenNick? Plus they are currently filming season 3, so this is the gift that keeps on giving!
Should you watch: Yes, yes, a thousand times, yes!
