Season 4 of NBC’s World of Dance is coming…but not soon enough in our opinion. While you wait, why not check out one (or all) of these other fictional dance shows to hold you over? If we missed your favorite dance show, find us on Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter and let us know.
Why, oh why, was Bunheads canceled after only one season? We may never know. Despite this utter travesty, Bunheads is a charming show about a former Las Vegas dancer (Sutton Foster) who moves back to her hometown after a hasty marriage. She ends up teaching dance alongside her mother (the wonderful Kelly Bishop) and forming unlikely bonds with a group of her students. Created by Amy Sherman-Palladino, of Gilmore Girls fame, this show is definitely worth a binge if you’ve never seen it.
The Next Step
This beloved Canadian teen drama follows a troupe of dancers as they train and compete in prestigious competitions. This mockumentary has seven seasons to delve into, plus two spinoffs (Lost & Found Music Studios and Taking the Next Step) so there is plenty to binge on a cold winter weekend. At the time of publishing this article, The Next Step is available to watch on Hulu.
Hit The Floor
Hit The Floor follows the Devil Girls, the dance squad for the fictional basketball team The Los Angeles Devils. There’s plenty of juicy drama as the dance group outshines the team and captures the attention of the City of Angels. The series follows the effects of fame, power, money, love, and competition both on and off the court. This is definitely one that will keep you watching!
This FX series explores the African-American and Latino LGBTQ ballroom culture in New York City during the 1980s. With gorgeous costumes and exquisite cinematography, this show will draw you in from minute one. Funny, charming, heartbreaking, and poignant, Pose is nothing short of revolutionary. The series currently has two seasons and has been renewed for a third.
Fame is an absolute classic and, in our humble opinion, one of the best shows of the 80’s. Based on a movie of the same name, the show follows the lives of the students and faculty at the fictional New York City High School for the Performing Arts as they followed their dreams of achieving, er, fame. Fun, charming, and energetic this show is just an absolute delight to watch. It also has one of the best theme songs EVER (go on, fight us).
