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.

The Making of "Center Stage," as Remembered by Its Dance Stars

Whether you first watched it in a theater two decades ago or on Netflix last week, odds are you feel a deep connection to Center Stage. The cult classic, which premiered May 12, 2000, is arguably the greatest dance film ever made. (Dance obsessives might take issue with the "cult" before "classic," not to mention the "dance" before "film.") Jody Sawyer's ballet journey—which combines oh-wow-I've-had-those-blisters realism with wait-does-she-have-magic-color-changing-pointe-shoes fantasy—stands the test of time, early-aughts fashion be darned. We've memorized its highly quotable lines, laughed with (and, gently, at) its heroes, and been inspired by its sincere love of dance and dancers.

To celebrate Center Stage's 20th anniversary, we asked five of its dance stars to talk through their memories of the filming process. Here are their stories of on-set bonding, post-puke kissing scenes, and life imitating art imitating life.
