Entertainment Weekly revealed the following about the series:
“Chronicling the lives of world-class students age 8 to 18 pursuing their dreams of becoming professional ballet dancers in an uber-competitive environment, the series reveals what it’s really like to make it as a professional dancer, including all the highs of success and the very low lows. While older students rigorously train for professional careers, younger students are put through their paces as they rehearse and perform in New York City Ballet’s holiday classic George Balanchine’s The Nutcracker at Lincoln Center.”
