Disney+ is going to be taking viewers behind the curtain of the renowned School of American Ballet. On Pointe is a new docu-series from Imagine Documentaries and DCTV designed to highlight what students go through at the school from age 8-18.
“On Pointe” captures a season in New York City’s world renowned School of American Ballet (SAB). Featuring unprecedented access to one of the top youth ballet institutions in the world, the series follows the lives of the students ages 8 to 18 pursuing their dreams to become ballet dancers. While older students from all over the country rigorously train for professional careers, younger students from New York City are put through their paces as they rehearse and perform in New York City Ballet’s holiday classic “George Balanchine’s The Nutcracker®” onstage at Lincoln Center.
On Pointe will be available to stream on Disney+ starting December 18.
