Dance is a hot commodity these days when it comes to film and television. The CW Network is the next in line to tap into this market with their six-episode reality series Breaking Pointe. The show promises to take viewers into the “cutthroat world” of ballet, filled with “rivalry and relationships.” It sounds more like a soap opera rather than the inner workings of a major ballet company located in Salt Lake City, UT. Yet, I think we’ve all experienced some of these dramatic, made-for-TV moments throughout our careers.
Tuesday, the New York Times gave a fair amount of coverage to the show and I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t intrigued. Therefore, in the spirit of satisfying my curiosity and in the hopes to engage in conversation with other dancers, I’ll be staying in tonight to watch the spectacle and form my own thoughts. Kicking off Dd’s summer project, Dance on TV, I’ll tweet live throughout the premiere and post a recap tomorrow morning. As always, I want to hear others’ opinions.
Join in on the conversation tonight via Twitter with the hashtag #BreakingPointe! Happy television viewing!
