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.

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."
