SO. MANY. OPTIONS. (via marquee.tv)

Yes, we all love it when Netflix offers up a few tasty dance movies. But there's a new streaming platform in town promising a veritable feast of delicious dance goodies—which means nights in with your studio crew are about to get a whole lot sweeter.

Marquee TV just officially launched in the US, UK, and Canada, allowing users to stream all kinds of gorgeous arts content for about nine (US) bucks a month. Its current dance offerings include stage performances by—take a deep breath before diving into this list—New York City Ballet, Nederlands Dans Theater, Alonzo King Lines Ballet, Paul Taylor Dance Company, Mariinsky Ballet, Bolshoi Ballet, Bill T. Jones/Arnie Zane Dance Company, Paris Opera Ballet, Batsheva Dance Company, San Francisco Ballet, and Mark Morris Dance Group, to name JUST a few. There're also dance films featuring iconic ballerinas Sylvie Guillem, Wendy Whelan, and Darcey Bussell. (And it's not all dance stuff, for the record: Your music, theater, and opera friends will want to get in on this, too.)

Characters deal with everything from disabilities to coming to terms with their sexual orientation and finding self-acceptance. Creating a dance series that incorporates such weighty subject matter also adds another dimension to the dancing.
