Remember Bella (Nicole Muñoz), Kate's little sister from Center Stage: Turn It Up? SHE'S BACK, and this time it's her turn to audition for the American Ballet Academy. Other old favorites who'll be returning: Tommy (Kenny Wormald), Charlie (Sascha Radetsky) and Cooper (Ethan Stiefel). And of course, it wouldn't be the ABA without a return from Johnathan Reeves (Peter Gallagher)! If that's not enough for you, up-and-comer Chloe Lukasiak (you know her from Dance Moms) will be there too, cast as dance prodigy Gwen.
As for the plot? The American Ballet Academy is headed in a more contemporary direction, and Johnathan is holding a "Dance Camp" training intensive to find his new superstars. His top choreographers (Tommy, Cooper and Charlie, obviously) are tasked with recruiting dancers to compete at the camp, with the winners earning a coveted spot at the ABA. Plenty of dance and plenty of drama, what more could we ask for? Here's to hoping there's at least one iconic costume change moment. (Not holding our breath, though, this one is hard to top.)
