First "Bunheads" and now "Breaking Pointe"—it seems like the ballet-on-television trend might be on its way out.
The CW has announced that it has not ordered a third season of "Breaking Pointe," the docudrama following Ballet West. The news isn't particularly surprising, as "Breaking Pointe" had very low ratings throughout the show's first season, and continued to fall during its second. Nevertheless, we'll miss our weekly dose of soapy ballet.
Are you ready to go back inside Ballet West? The second season of "Breaking Pointe" premieres on Monday—and we can't wait. To tide you over the weekend, take a look at our photo essay, which follows a day in the life of Beckanne Sisk during filming this winter. And check out this preview clip, released by The CW.
The season premiere of "Breaking Pointe" has just been moved up to July 22. We can hardly wait to find out what's in store this time around. In the meantime, we're fantasizing with our fingers crossed about a few things we hope to see:
1. Footage of Jewels. Ballet West performed the full ballet for the first time this April, and we'd love to go into some rehearsals and get a peek behind the curtain. Beckanne Sisk in the lead of "Rubies"? We bet she's pretty great.
