  • The injuries are extreme, the dancing gorgeous, the dancers young and beautiful, and the slogan the best on TV: "Blood, Sweat and Tutus." Show More

  • This reality show tries to do the same [tap into the endlessly fascinating world of ballet], following Salt Lake City's Ballet West, but it doesn't bring much new drama to the table. Show More

  • Though the show takes the dancers' work at least as seriously as it takes their relationships, you won't need to know a plié from a pirouette to appreciate the drama, and yes, the touch of class, in Breaking Pointe. Show More
