    Not bad at all for a reality show. I think the fact that it's set in Salt Lake City instead of, let's say, Manhattan, helps you focus more on the company and less on the salacious nightlife of the individual dancers. I happened upon this show, not really wanting to pick up another summer show, but I think I'll give this at least another couple episodes.

    Interesting on many levels and dispells at least two of the main stereotypes about ballet - one that the whole thing is just silly frou-frou and the second that all male dancers are gay. The training and athleticism is so tough and the climb so hard - it's a wonder that it's all so lovely in the end. 4 stars

    What separates this cast from just about every other real-ity show is that these people are chasing something larger than themselves, more vital to them than fame or money--that brief moment of perfection onstage, achieved after years of study and practice.

    The injuries are extreme, the dancing gorgeous, the dancers young and beautiful, and the slogan the best on TV: "Blood, Sweat and Tutus."

    It shows only scant signs of life while also failing to be all that revealing about the unique profession it depicts.
