Anyone else still not over the fact that the show "Bunheads" was so cruelly cancelled? Yeah, us too.😭

But as of last Friday, everyone's favorite dance show is now available to stream on Hulu. All 18 episodes of Season 1 are available for the taking. IT'S A HOLIDAY MIRACLE!


Our girl Sutton Foster shared in our excitement:

For those who missed the show the first time around, "Bunheads" follows the lovable Michelle Simms (played by Foster), a former Las Vegas showgirl who ends up living in a small Cali town with her mother-in-law, who runs a dance studio. She winds up bonding with the students and teaching at the school, getting especially close to dancers Boo, Sasha, Ginny, and Melanie. It's dramatic, dancey, hilarious, and super heartwarming.

And in honor of "Bunheads"' exciting return to our lives, we decided to #throwback to when we interviewed the talented kids from the show. Read on to learn some crazy little-known facts about the girls playing Boo, Sasha, Ginny, and Melanie, and then get yourselves over to Hulu asap.

Happy winter break binging, everybody! ❄️ ❄️ ❄️

Why More and More Men Are Dancing on Pointe

Like many professional dancers, New York City Ballet's Gilbert Bolden III is totally used to sharing pics and vids of his dancing on social media. But in the fall of 2018, the corps de ballet member hesitated before posting one particular clip. "I was extremely nervous the first time I posted a video of me dancing on pointe," he remembers. "It felt like a big step—almost like coming out. But not a single person was shady or unwelcoming!"

Once pretty much limited to women, pointe shoes are now being donned by more and more male-identifying dancers—for reasons as diverse as the dancers themselves. If you, too, are a pointe-curious guy, allow Bolden and other amazing male dancers to point(e) you in the right direction.
