Looking for a new series to get yourself hooked on in 2014? Forget “Orange Is the New Black” and “Breaking Bad”—check out Dancemedia’s online reality show “Dance 212.” Now in its seventh season, the show typically follows New York City dancers who are at various stages in their careers. This season, though, the producers are changing things up: 19 past cast members have been brought back for the “Where Are They Now?”-themed seventh season. The cast list reads something like a dance all-star team: Broadway starlet Paloma Garcia-Lee (Dance Magazine, October 2013) is on it, as is American Ballet Theatre stand-out corps de ballet member Skylar Brandt (Pointe magazine, April/May 2012). Though this season only premiered on December 17, there are already six episodes available to watch—they’re rolled out at the rate of two a week.
Got a dancer at your studio who’s thinking of moving to NYC to pursue his or her dance dreams? Introduce them to “Dance 212”! It’s the most upfront, honest version of a professional dancer’s life you’ll find.
