Because there's never been a better time to binge-watch "Bunheads" (via Freeform)

5 of the Danciest TV Shows Streaming Right Now (and Where to Stream Them)

We're about two months into #SocialDisDancing, and let's be real—while we all wish we were spending every spare minute stretching, cross-training, or taking online classes, sometimes we just need to Netflix and chill.

We figure, if you're going to be watching TV anyways, why not make it dancy TV? After all, watching pros dance on-screen is basically dance class homework...or at least we'll say it is. Here are five of the danciest TV shows for you to watch—and where to find them.


"Bunheads," available on Hulu

TBH, we're still not over the premature cancellation of this iconic Amy Sherman-Palladino show. But if you're a fan of ballet, "Gilmore Girls," or Sutton Foster (what a combo!), this is the show for you—and it's streaming now on Hulu.

"Dance Moms," available on Hulu

You've probably already seen every episode of "Dance Moms." After all, who wasn't an Abby Lee Dance Company fangirl growing up? But if you're bored in the house, there's no better time to revisit some of your fave "Dance Moms" memories. Seasons 1, 2, 6, and 7 are all available on Hulu.

"Pose," available on Netflix

"Pose," created by Ryan Murphy (of "Glee" fame) is all about the 1980s house ball scene. Starring Broadway icon Billy Porter, this show is fun, fabulous, and important—it explores the experiences of people of color and LGBTQ+ people who were often excluded from the ball scene. Catch up with "Pose" on Netflix.

"Fosse/Verdon," available on Hulu

If you're a fan of Broadway shows like Chicago, Sweet Charity, or Pippin, take an inside look at the life of choreographer Bob Fosse, and his relationship with Gwen Verdon. Broadway babies and Fosse fans alike, this is the show for you—and all eight episodes are on Hulu.

"Breaking Pointe," available on Amazon Prime

If you've ever wondered what it's really like to dance with a major ballet company, you need to check out "Breaking Pointe," which went behind the scenes with dancers at Ballet West. We will forever love this show for introducing us to the beautiful Beckanne Sisk—and her to-die-for feet. You can purchase the first season of "Breaking Pointe" on Amazon Prime.

Enter the World of the Knicks City Dancers with 2 of Their Newest Rookies

Auditions rarely fail to deliver on suspense. But this? This was the nail-biter to end all nail-biters. Hayoung Roh and Chelsea McCloskey, both professional dancers based in NYC, had made it through what felt like endless rounds of cuts, both on Zoom and in person. Out of the nearly 500 dancers (from 30 states and nine countries) who'd answered the Knicks City Dancers' open call for video submissions, just 20 remained—McCloskey and Roh among them. "We were separated into six holding rooms, where we kept trying to figure out the math," Roh recalls. "How many girls are there in total? Who was called back?"

Finally, the women returned to the audition room to dance one last time—or so they were told. Instead, KCD head coach Alyssa Quezada dropped her bombshell: All 20 women had made the final cut. They would be 2021–22 Knicks City Dancers: the latest and greatest edition of one of the most prestigious NBA dance teams. "It was the biggest celebration and the coolest moment of my dance career so far," says McCloskey now. And that was just the oh-so-perfectly-dramatic beginning.
