Dance Academy: Turning Pointes   First Watch

Abigail's not allowed back to class until she gets psychologically and emotionally healthy, which should mean she's ready when she turns about 45. Miss Raine starts bludgeoning Tara a week early. Kat remains a party girl. Sam tries to coax Abigail away from the dark side. Christian rather maturely puts up with the antics of everyone around him, as he is wont to do.

I was quite taken with the Tara and Christian pas de deux montage. I played it back several times. When they got to the sequence in the park it seemed natural rather than contrived, which is another thing this show does well that is not often done well in this genre.

And the funny thing about this show is that it gives me the urge to do my daily workout because I'm visualizing myself doing entrechat six with perfect alignment. When in reality I'm about as balletic as Emo Phillips on a runaway Routemaster and my workout consists of ungainly HIIT-type galumphing.
