Great News, "Bunheads" Fans!

via Freeform

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! ❄️ ❄️ ❄️

It's a Ziegler Zamboni! (screenshot via YouTube)

Everyone loves the multitalented Maddie and Mackenzie Ziegler. Everyone loves Olympic figure skater (and pop-culture icon) Adam Rippon. Everyone loves when dancers ice-skate, and vice versa. So what could possibly be more lovable than the latest episode of the YouTube show "Break the Ice with Adam Rippon," in which Rippon teaches the sisters Ziegler to skate? (Nothing. NOTHING is more lovable than this freakishly cute video.)

Three of our Insta faves (Jenna Johnson Chmerkovskiy, Robert Roldan, and Gaby Diaz) in one photo!

It's safe to say that we're obsessed with the "So You Think You Can Dance" All Stars. Over the past few seasons, we've loved seeing them up on that "SYT" stage, guiding each new batch of contestants. Unsurprisingly, many of the All Stars are as charismatic online as they are onscreen. While we wait to hear which All Stars will be involved in Season 16, here are six from years past that you should totally be following on Insta.

Sage Humphries rehearsing "White" (Brooke Trisolini, courtesy Boston Ballet)

It's been an eventful few months for Sage Humphries, to say the least. Last November, the Boston Ballet company member made her (very well-received) choreographic debut with a piece called YOU, part of the company's BB@home: ChoreograpHER program. Just one week later, Humphries sustained an injury that kept her offstage for a couple of months. But she didn't have much downtime: Artistic director Mikko Nissinen soon asked Humphries to make a piece for Boston Ballet's first-ever appearance at Boston Calling Music Festival. Now that Humphries is back in the studio, Dance Spirit caught up with her to talk about making ballet rock, working with her composer brother, and what it's like to see her name next to William Forsythe's.
