8 Shows That Need a Dance-Filled Musical Episode ASAP

If there's one thing we learned from the musical episode of "Riverdale" last season, it's that more television shows should follow along and have at least one dance-tastic episode. Sure, sometimes these can flop, but most of the time they only make us love the show even more. Here are 8 series that we think need an episode filled with dancey goodness RIGHT NOW.


"The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina"

Kiernan Shipka and Ross Lynch singing a beautiful duet with all the other witches as backup dancers? We're ready for it.

"The Bachelor" 

Imagine this: Instead of getting a random guy to be the new bachelor, we get one of our favorite dancers (Robert Roldan, where you at?).

"Keeping Up with the Kardashians" 

It's honestly crazy that Kris Jenner hasn't already turned one of her daughters into a musical prodigy, but no time's better than the present.

"Dynasty"

We already know that Liz Gillies is a performance powerhouse, so a musical episode is a no-brainer.

"The Bold Type"

Three strong women taking on NYC? Seems like the perfect opportunity to throw in some jazz dancers and make it into the feminist musical we all want.

"This Is Us"

This would probably end up being the saddest ballet sequence of all time since "This Is Us" never fails to make us cry.

"13 Reasons Why" 

We don't really know what will happen in the next season of "13 Reasons Why," but it's a show about high schoolers, sooo why can't one end up being a stellar dancer? Just a thought, Netflix.

"American Horror Story" 

Bring Lady Gaga back for a much needed musical episode, please!

Please Enjoy the Quarantine Genius of “Swan Lake Bath Ballet”

That old saying about limitations breeding creativity—hat tip to Orson Welles—has never felt more relevant than in these lockdown days. Here's the latest brilliant dance project born (hatched?) of quarantine restrictions: "Swan Lake Bath Ballet," a contemporary take on the classic featuring 27 A-list ballet dancers performing from their own bathtubs.

How Project 21 Is Shaping the Next Generation of Competition-Dance Standouts

"I wish I had a better story about the name," says Molly Long, founder of the Orange County, CA–based dance studio Project 21. In truth, it's a play on the fact that she was born on the twenty-first of August, and 21 is her favorite number. "I was away on a teaching tour, the audition announcement was going live on Instagram the next day, and I desperately needed a name. Project 21 was just the least cheesy of the options I thought of!"

The fact that fans might expect the name to have some profound meaning speaks to the near-mythic status Project 21 has achieved on the competition and convention scene since its founding in 2014. Long's dancers are all wholly individual, yet jell seamlessly as a group, and are consistently snagging top prizes everywhere on the circuit. Each season brings a slew of new accolades, high-caliber faculty, and legions of devoted followers.

The industry has taken notice of the studio's unique ethos. "Molly gets through to her dancers in a special way, and they have this incomparable level of commitment to their craft as a result," says dancer and choreographer Billy Bell, who's worked closely with Long and her dancers. "That's what sets them apart—it's like a little dose of magic."
