I'm so excited for this!!!

Confession time - I really don't think I'm the target audience for the Australian teen-oriented television show Dance Academy - but I love this show.  I first saw it in Germany in German, so I had to watch the episodes a few times to get it.

Then I bought the DVD and watched them in English.  And I watched all of them.  Again and again.  And now they're making a movie! 

I promise you if you watch the first five to six episodes, you'll be hooked.  (And most fans will tell you season 2 is better than 1, so keep going!)

And if you end up going to the movie first, you'll want to go back and watch them all.  So strap in, either way, you're going to want to binge watch.

There is so much in this series that relates to skating.  It takes place at the prestigious national ballet school in Sydney, Australia.  Instead of going to high school, those that are good enough to get in, attend three years of schooling to prepare for life as a professional ballet dancer.

Whether it's an episode about crippling stage fright, lack of funds for training, performing while in pain, competing against the naturally talented, or wanting to quit -- any skater or fan of skating will relate.  I like that the actors are the dancers as well.  So very talented.

Have you seen the show?  Already a big fan?  Let me know.
