Christian Reed feels betrayed but objects not when Tara, who waved a fat damages claim, which her top lawyer probably would have won, in return for another audition at the National Ballet, isn't selected and accept to move to New York, moving in with Kat and her brilliant lover. She fails to pass any major audition, worse the Ollie, who co-created a novel choreography. Indomitable Ben Tickle has moved in with the senior teacher after recovering from his cancer and trains their tails off with Tara, but has another relapse.Written by

Everything it needed to be.
Finally! After more than a year, I finally get to see this! Let me give you a little bit of context. I'm 33. I'm french-Canadian. I live in Montreal. I'm a graduate student. And I'm the only one I know that cares about this.
I think any review made by anyone who hasn't watched the show is missing something important. This is not a movie that stands on its own. It's the culmination of 3 years' worth of time following the incredibly relatable and lovable bunch that were in the original Dance Academy series.
I remember stumbling upon the first episode back in 2011. I was immediately hooked. I cannot count the number of times I cried, just because I was seeing the characters strive and overcome.
Watching this movie was like seeing my own little sister grow out of her awkward stage and try finding her way into the world. It was beautiful. So many "sequel" movies are botched and end up making things worse ("Veronica Mars", anyone?). But not this. This was everything it needed to be. I cannot thank the creators and producers enough for making this happen. You gave me the closure I needed. And I remembered something important: sometimes, your dreams change. And it doesn't mean you wasted your time believing in them.
So don't spoil the fun by watching this movie if you haven't seen the 3 wonderful seasons of Dance Academy that precede it. Starting this journey at the very beginning is necessary! Scout's honour!
