There are two kinds of reality shows -- salacious and sophisticated. The former has no qualms about showing you the contents of its drunk subjects' stomachs, while the latter aims to show you the contents of a subject's soul. Breaking Pointe most definitely belongs to the latter group.
Starting tonight, The CW takes you inside the rehearsal rooms of Salt Lake City's Ballet West -- one of the country's premiere ballet companies -- as they begin promoting (and demoting) dancers through the nerve-wracking Contracts process.

Along the way, we meet some standouts in Ballet West's 48 person company -- including dating dancers Allison & Rex (yes, there are straight men on this show), talented upstart Beckanne, Principal Artist Christiana and "bad boy" Ronnie (think Cooper Nielson without the accent).
An association that quickly makes it clear how well-suited I am to a show like Breaking Pointe since I devour every piece »
