I got to have a wonderful weekend away for my birthday and to celebrate my engagement—it’s been an eventful time around here. If you get a chance to come to Canada, I highly recommend heading to Gananoque to experience the small-town charm, then taking the ferry over to explore the Thousand Islands (which actually sit on the border of New York and Ontario). Overall, it’s been a fantastic time with good food, great company, and even some down time to sit and watch a few great shows. Speaking of great shows, let’s see what you should be watching tonight.
Breaking Pointe returns tonight with the second season premiere, and I’m quite excited. The dancers were all in different phases of their careers and love life. The hardest part of last season was watching the dancers learn about their fate in the company, and when they didn’t make it, I really felt their sadness.
On tonight’s premiere, “It’s Not Brain Surgery, It’s Ballet,” the Ballet West dancers return from winter break and begin tryouts for “Cinderella.” Famed former ballet dancer Wendy Ellis Somes arrives to assist Artistic Director Adam in the audition process. With her partner Ronnie out with a foot injury, Beckanne begins to feel the pressure during tryouts. Meanwhile, Allison is torn between staying with Ballet West or moving on. After a night of partying, Zach and Beckanne have a falling out, and Ronnie gets some disturbing news from his doctor that could change the rest of his life.
To watch the dancers put their best efforts into wearing the glass slipper, tune in to The CW at 9/8c.
I’ll also be watching The Bachelorette, American Ninja Warrior, Mistresses, and Get Out Alive.
